New Fujifilm Film Simulation Recipes Update For December

Over the course of the next week there will be three new film simulation recipes released for Fujifilm X-Trans IV cameras. This brings the total site film simulation catalogue up to 29 (20 X-Trans III and 9 X-Trans IV).

A classic film stock based on AGFA film.
A recipe based on good old fashioned instant film.
An old film stock type recipe, with a golden glow.

And once these are released, there will be a final release on Christmas Day of something very special (if all goes well!)

I do all this for free, but if you would like to help out, then I happily accept PayPal payments to mgadams1970@gmail.com The time and the cost of the website are very real, and any little help towards my work is welcome and much appreciated.

Llanelli North Dock Photography Meet (And Film Sim Test)

Tuesday 24th November I headed out to Llanelli North Dock with my photography group for our weekly shoot. This was a place we’d never been. A reclaimed dock and Waterside area with some stunning scenery. The visit took us not just to the beach, but there was a lovely lake worth many wild birds, plus a wooded area.

It’s always nice visiting new areas, but on days where I have a lot of things to try it, it’s even more exciting. I had a number of new film simulations I’d been working on, plus some base ideas for them. For this I shot both raw and jpeg and loaded my camera with the simulations.

As you can see, these simulations were put together by myself, mostly for trial on the visit as I knew it would possibly allow some experimenting. The end results actually had me change things up a little, but that’s the best way to get perfect results.

Here are the images from today, all straight out of camera (viewing them full screen makes a better experience), they were just resized in Photoscape X Pro with no other changes. A follow up blog showing some of these in print will follow in the next few days. The equipment used on this shoot was my new Fujifilm X-T3 along with the Fuji 15-45mm and 50-230mm lenses.

It was such a wonderful day, and I’m more than happy with the simulations as they are. They will be put onto the website in the coming days, as time is limited a minute. As you can see, I got excited by my Portra recipe, so there us quite a few images using that!

If you’d like to join us at Great Photography Walks South Wales, or just join me on my Fujifilm photography journey, please feel free to add me to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

So comments, likes and subscribes to the website and blog are most welcomed, and give me the inspiration to keep doing what I’m doing! I respond to all comments.

Thank you for reading, and look out soon for more blogs!

Portra, Vintage Mono, Eterna XTra and Leica Q2 Monochrom Cool will all be available in the next few days from the Fuji section of the website. Leica-Like V2 will follow once I have found a more suitable testing ground

— I’m currently looking for testers to test out the film simulations I do, as this will help me perfect them more in different scenarios. Please contact me if you would like to help.
