Film Recipes for Bright Sunny Days

Bright sunshine can present some challenges to photographers, with high contrast and hard light making it difficult to capture a scene in a pleasing way. This selection of film recipes all work well in bright conditions, taming some of the extremes and allowing you to keep snapping throughout the day.

For down at the beach, on a lunchtime photowalk, or whenever the lights is bright, try one of these film simulation recipes and embrace the bright conditions.

As for my favourites, and a few to try first, I really enjoy the look of Age of Aquarius, Jorrvaskr and Astia Mellow.
