Classic Negative Film Preset by Gavin Seim

The images are images created from using Gavin Seim's Classic Negative preset for Adobe Lightroom. Gavin has some sort of mental block regarding the design of the rear LCD on the X-Pro3 (I just don't get why so many people are turned off by it). Ah well. Who cares. I get to enjoy a new Adobe Lightroom preset.

All images were cropped and perspective corrected from Fujifilm RAF files.

Classic Negative Film Simulation Recipe by Ritchie Roesch

After trying Jean-Pascal Remon’s Classic Negative recipe, I tried Ritchie Roesch’s Classic Negative recipe, which is based on the Pro Negative Standard film simulation recipe.

I do not have a Fujifilm X-Pro3 or Fujifilm X100V so I don't know how closely Ritchie's recipe matched Classic Negative, but I do like the look.

Classic Negative Film Simulation Recipe By Jean-Pascal Remon

Jamie Chance wrote a blog post about attempts by three photographers to recreate the Classic Negative look for Fujifilm X-Tran III sensors. Writing on Fujirumours, photographer Jean-Pascal Remon, offers his recipe to approximate the looks of Fujifilm’s new Classic Negative Film Simulation.

  • Dynamic Range: 400%
  • Film Simulation: Classic Chrome
  • Grain Effect: Strong
  • White Balance: Auto, R: -2 B: +4
  • Highlight Tone: 0
  • Shadow Tone: 0
  • Color: -1
  • Sharpness: -4
  • Noise Reduction: -4
  • Lens modulation optimizer: OFF

I'll see how this compares to the Classic Negative recipe Ritchie Roesch created for X-Trans III sensors. I haven't decided if I like Classic Negative but Ritchie's images are likely to convince me.

All images are SOOC JPEGs with minor perspective correction and cropping.
