Film Simulation Challenge – Roll 3: Eterna

For this third installment of the Film Simulation Challenge, where I use the same settings for 24 or 36 exposures, similar to shooting a roll of film, I chose my Eterna film simulation recipe. This particular recipe isn’t meant to mimic the look of any real film, but nonetheless it has a color negative aesthetic. I “loaded” this “film” into my Fujifilm X-T30, and exposed 36 frames. Sometimes I had a Fujinon 35mm f/2 lens attached to the front of the camera, and sometimes I had a Fujinon 90mm f/2. Both of these lenses are fantastic. I like the way this Eterna recipe looks, and I think Eterna in general is under appreciated. Only a few cameras have this film simulation, so perhaps that’s why it’s not discussed as much as it deserves, but I think it’s great, and I was glad to use it here.

    FYI. I’m not sure how the WordPress algorithm decides what tags show up on reader but my most recent post for the Film Simulation Challenge did not appear on Reader.

      I have no idea how it works, but it’s too bad it didn’t appear on Reader.

        Yeah. None of my challenge post appear under the “filmsimulationchallenge” tag in Reader. Yours do. I participate in other challenges and my tagged posts appear in the proper tag channels. Oddity.
