If your Fuji camera has the Acros film simulation with the X-Trans 4 sensor, the good news is you can use this setting whether it’s an X-S10, X-T4, X-E4, X100V, X-Pro3, or many more.

What Is Dark Matter Film Recipe For Street Photography All About?

‘Dark Matter’ street film recipe features one of the best Fujifilm recipes for street photography which is the Acros base film simulation. I have increased the shadow settings for a moody, vintage black & white feel. As I try not to use too much grain for my portrait film recipe, I think having strong and large grain does look great for creating vintage street photography.

The exposure is up to you on how you want to create the light and shadow for your still images. You can use the Aperture Priority by controlling the light using the Aperture ring if you are a fast shooter. If you want to take your time, camp at a place, wait for the subject, and enjoy the shooting experience, use manual settings for your camera.

This film recipe works great for both shooting techniques. Depending on your creativity, you can easily create more amazing black & white pictures than the one I’ve shot. Would like to try another B&W mood? Check out the high-contrast black & white recipe called Dark Diary.
