Nostalgic Film Recipes

Film Recipes with a Nostalgic Look

One of the reasons I decided to shoot with Fujifilm was the nostalgic film simulations and the ability to further tune these to give a wide variety of nostalgic looks. I love photos with warm colour tones and lifted shadows, and so this is one of the larger categories of film recipe on this site.

Retro themed recipes make up a big proportion of this site, so the choice is varied and plentiful. To get started, I’d suggest Vintage Kodachrome, Restore from Backup and Nostalgic Standard, which are three of my favourties.
