My interpretation of the Kodachrome 64 look. It’s Classic Chrome as I feel it ought to be, and is great with blue skies.

The second entry in the most popular recipe list for a style based on an expired Kodak film. This one is Eterna based.


Rich and warm, with a boost to reds, this Classic Negative recipe is a cosy recipe for warming up photos.
