Although I like my Gold Leaf recipe it’s a bit too extreme to use regularly. I created this “1979” recipe to be a look that you can walk around with shooting all kinds of situations with.
I don’t create these recipes trying to mimic any specific film stock. Instead I try to match a feeling or vibe. In this case I wanted to create a look that felt vintage. I decided to name it 1979 because it reminds me of a few 35mm film stocks that were popular in the 70s and 80s.
I created this recipe on my X-T1 and it works great with that X-Trans II sensor. If you have a camera that has the X-Trans III sensor or later then you’ll have more options to add to this. The main one I would add if you have the option is some film grain. Experiment and add to your liking. I imagine some subtle grain will do. Just something to add texture and soften the edges ever so slightly.
I really like this recipe. I can’t wait to try it on my X-H1 with some grain. Try this out for yourself and let me know how it works out.
Here’s my YouTube video talking about this recipe. Thank you for your support!
