If you are looking for another Fujifilm film simulation recipe for travel use, you can check out this new recipe called ‘Summer Wanderer’. The color tone for this recipe is suitable for travel including sightseeing, or just wandering around the downtown or urban areas.
The creation of this recipe took quite some time to get the suitable color tone and white balance shift to match the warm summer feel. The Summer Wanderer is suitable for the newer Fujifilm X-Trans IV sensor cameras including the Fujifilm X-T4, X-E4, X-T30II, X-S10, and X-Pro3.
What Is the Summer Wanderer Recipe All About?
The name of the recipe is obvious and since it is June and summer is just around the corner, it is about time to save this recipe in your Fujifilm camera’s custom setting and ready for a fun summer shoot. Let’s wander around anywhere you like and take more pictures! This recipe is created based on one of the best film simulations for street photography, the Classic Negative. Keep in mind that this recipe is contrasty and it works great with or without the diffusion lens filter. But most of the time, I have the diffusion filter on my lens all the time.
The color shift of this recipe is more magenta blend with a custom white balance at 7900K. So it will be slightly reddish with a warm feel. I tried this white balance shift so that it doesn’t look like my other Fujifilm recipes, such as the Tokyo Dream or Nomadic Mood travel recipe. This recipe is suitable for daylight use and even indoors for some huge color shifts for creative shoots. You might be shooting a little slower with this recipe because the Clarity has been set to -5. This will add a slightly matte effect, and smoothen the images. Suggested adding a diffusion filter for the extra glows for creating dreamy photos or find out which are the best lens FX filters that might suit you.
Guess what? Sometimes, it is good to shoot at a slow pace, as you will be more focused on the streets and get the shot you wanted. No rushing.
