Fujifilm Film Simulation Challenge Roll 8 : Vintage Kodachrome

By on June 20th, 2020 in Photography

For this 36 frame "roll of film" for the Film Simulation Challenge, I chose Ritchie's Vintage Kodachrome Film Simulation recipe. According to Ritchie:

… I accidentally discovered a vintage Kodachrome recipe for my Fujifilm X100F, based on Classic Chrome. By “accidentally” I mean that I had no intentions of creating a Kodachrome look. I captured a RAW image and played around with it in the camera’s built-in RAW editor. I was trying to see what crazy looks I could get if I really messed around with the settings. One of the versions that I created reminded me of vintage Kodachrome.

Ritchie's happy accident allowed me to capture these in-camera JPEG images. I have never photographed with any Kodachrome film stock so I don't know how accurate Ritchie's recipe is to the original film. However, I do like the results.

If it were possible to add an S-curve in-camera, I would add a slight fade to give an old photographic print look.

What do you think?
