Film Simulation Challenge – Roll 2: Kodacolor

My first “roll of film” for the Film Simulation Challenge was Kodachrome 64. For my second “roll of film” I choose my Kodacolor film simulation recipe. I “loaded” the “Kodacolor film” into my Fujifilm X-T30 camera, which had a Fujinon 35mm f/2 lens attached to it, and exposed 36 frames. The Film Simulation Challenge is where you capture 24 or 36 exposures using the same settings much like shooting a roll of film. It can be a fun (and educational) experiment to use your digital camera similarly to an analog camera.

    The gas station at night shots were nice. I’m doing something similar. I’m only using two Film Simulations (classic chrome and Acros). Until I have a few hundred shots in classic chrome, I won’t use any other color simulation. Acros I use all the time anyway.

      That’s awesome, gives you consistency. CC & Acros are two of the best film simulations.

    Love the gas station!

    Just saw this in Guardian. Recipe idea for this setting?

      I will look into that. My first instinct is to begin with Astia.

    Yep. The gas station images are my favourite.

    Haha, I was coming to the comments to say apparently the same thing as everyone else, but yeah, the gas station photos are great!

    I also really like the rendering of Taco and Red Stripe. It’s a great idea of a challenge. I might give it a shot in the near future.

      Thank you! I appreciate the feedback and kind words. You definitely should do the challenge, I’m having a great time with it.
