Fujifilm X-T4 Film Simulation – Retro Allure Film Recipe

Retro Allure Travel Film Recipe Fuji X-T4

Retro Allure might sound like a beauty brand but it’s not. Here I have revealed another custom film recipe for Fujifilm X-T4 called Retro Allure, which is one of the best Fuji recipes for street portrait photography I’ve created so far in the Fujifilm recipes list. This new film recipe will create a warm retro film-like color tone, which is different from the other film simulations for portraits.

I am using the popular Classic Negative film simulation as the base for this custom film recipe. For now, this custom film recipe is only available for Fujifilm XS-10, X-T4, X-E4, and X-Pro3 users. I am going soft on the custom settings below as I just slightly altered the color and shadow so it doesn’t look way too vivid when it comes to portraits. It is also suggested to shoot a little overexposed to get the Japanese style color tone.

As usual, I left the Clarity at 0 so that there are no pauses in between the photoshoots. Clarity can be adjusted manually using Fujifilm X Raw Studio or Capture One.

To create something dreamy, it is best to use this Retro Allure film recipe along with a vintage lens and diffusion filter which you can check out in the How to shoot dreamy portraits tutorial I revealed months ago. For alternative dreamy SOOC images, check out the Classy Glow for fashion portraits.

What Is Retro Allure All About?

I gave this film recipe Retro Allure because I love to shoot beauty, travel, and street portraits for influencers in the daylight with low ISO with a warm color tone. It sounds simple but it’s true.
