Reverie Noir – AI Recipe For Fujifilm X-Series

Mood: B&W, Timeless, Street, Moody

A Timeless B&W Film-Look Recipe for Captivating Street Photography Strolls

I’m excited to introduce one of my Fujifilm AI recipes called ‘Reverie Noir’, which was initially generated using AI and then refined to enhance its quality. I understand that AI recipes for Fujifilm can be a topic of debate within the Fujifilm recipes community. It’s important to note that AI-generated recipes should be used as a guide, and while it has the potential to work exceptionally well if it is fine-tuned and adjusted to our personal preferences and shooting conditions. This really helps when you’re out of ideas to add new Fujifilm recipes to the list.

Understanding the Reverie Noir AI Recipe

The ‘Reverie Noir’ recipe is designed to bring forth the essence of timeless street photography with a noir-inspired twist. By utilizing the Acros film simulation, this recipe accentuates the monochromatic allure, rendering images with deep blacks, rich tones, and exquisite details. The carefully balanced settings heighten contrast and evoke a moody ambiance, allowing your photographs to tell captivating stories that transcend time.

It has been a while since I was out for a photo walk with my vintage hot lens. It does bring back the mood to shoot again although I was out for a few hours only. Most of the sample photos were shot with the Asahi Pentax SMC Takumar 50mm f1.4 vintage lens. I was shooting in the shade but I think this recipe will shine when shooting harsh sunlight with shade.

Setting the dynamic range to DR400 preserves highlight and shadow details while maintaining a balanced tonal range, adding depth and dimension to your images. The clarity setting is increased by +1 adding subtle mid-tone contrast, and enhancing the overall definition and depth of your monochrome images. The Clarity might add a little delay whenever you press the shutter button but you won’t noticed it if you shooting slowly with a peace of mind, just like shooting with film camera.

Pairing Vintage Lenses with 'Reverie Noir'

Indeed, every lens possesses its distinct characteristics, which can contribute to the timeless film look you desire. If you happen to own vintage lenses, I highly recommend incorporating them into your photography process alongside the “Reverie Noir” Fujifilm AI recipe. Vintage lenses often impart a unique and nostalgic rendering, further enhancing the timeless aesthetic of your images.

Experimenting with different lenses allows you to explore the interplay between modern technology and vintage charm, resulting in truly captivating photographs that evoke the spirit of classic film. Embrace the fusion of old and new, and let your creativity flourish through the marriage of the “Reverie Noir” recipe and your vintage lenses.

  1. Thanks Ivanfor sharing as always.

    I have mixture of new Fujifilm lenses, 7Artisans 25mm and vintage like Super Tak 55mm 1.8, Tak 105mm 2.8. Flare from the vintage ones is most welcome and part of its character. My XT1 does not have Acros, so for the Reverie Noir recipe how do I adapt it ?
