Kodak Film Recipes

Film recipes with a Kodak film vibe

This page gathers together the film recipes with a Kodak 35mm film aesthetic, such as those for Kodachrome and the Kodak film brands, such as Kodak Gold, Ektar and Ektachrome and Kodak Portra. As with all the recipes on this site, the aim is not to make studied copies of these films, but instead to capture a feeling in photos that is reminiscent of the style.

My top 3? Classic Gold, Kodak Portra Grainy and Aged Kodak Portra

Kodachrome is a name at the very heart of photography with their films defining a generation of images. There are plenty of interpretations and adaptations out there, but for a wide choice, Fuji X Weekly has a great selection.

On the other hand, you have Kodak Portra, which offers a different aesthetic and is also highly regarded. This portrait film was also wonderful in golden hour and when shooting buildings and nostalgia. Again, there are several choices.

To help navigate, here is my curated list of Kodak film recipes from FXW (and other sites where noted), covering a wide range of Kodak inspired styles. If in doubt, try the bolded options as a starting point.
