<p>
Ever since I stumbled upon the work of Ritchie on <a href="https://fujixweekly.com">Fuji X Weekly</a> and his film
simulation recipes, I've tried to set up my camera with various recipes and
shoot jpeg only.
</p>
<p>
I found shooting jpeg quite liberating. I used to expose for highlights,
sometimes shoot wider than necessary, thinking that I would figure that out
later in post, knowing that my raw files have all the data I needed. In the end
I spent more time editing raw files &#x2013; with the trustworthy <a href="https://www.darktable.org">Darktable</a> &#x2013; than
actually shooting.
</p>
<p>
Editing raw files can be very, very time consuming. To the point that I decided
to only edit my best photographs.
</p>
<p>
I've realized that if I had to get everything right in camera, I would be forced
to be more present when shooting, be more aware of the composition, colors and
light, instead of delaying the creative part to later.
</p>
<p>
So I "loaded" a few film recipes that I liked: <a href="https://fujixweekly.com/2020/05/27/my-fujifilm-x100v-kodachrome-64-film-simulation-recipe/">Kodachrome 64</a>, <a href="https://fujixweekly.com/2020/06/10/fujifilm-x100v-film-simulation-kodak-portra-400/">Portra 400</a> and
<a href="https://fujixweekly.com/2020/07/27/fujifilm-x100v-film-simulation-recipe-fujicolor-superia-800/">Superia 800</a>, and went shooting jpeg-only for a few days.
</p>
</div>
<div id="outline-container-org01fad4a" class="outline-3">
<h3 id="org01fad4a">Superia</h3>
<div class="outline-text-3" id="text-org01fad4a">
<p>
While I really liked the aesthetics of both Kodachrome and Portra 400, I couldn't
resist the amazing look of the new Classic Neg film simulation, and the various
Superia recipes Ritchie has made on top of it. They're truly excellent.
</p>
<p>
I decided to search for a Superia-like feel (not necessarily one exact film).
</p>
<p>
I live in <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany">a part of the world</a> where the sky is often overcast&#x2026; when rain is
not pouring. <a href="https://fujixweekly.com/2020/07/27/fujifilm-x100v-film-simulation-recipe-fujicolor-superia-800/">Superia 800</a> is great in many situations, but it really shines in
dreary days.
</p>
<p>
I found however that it is not very good for skin tones, as there's a quite
strong yellowish or green cast to it, resulting in unnatural skin tone
rendition. I then moved on to another Superia recipe from Ritchie: <a href="https://fujixweekly.com/2020/06/29/fujifilm-x100v-film-simulation-recipe-fujicolor-superia-1600/">Superia
1600</a>, which is nothing short of amazing.
</p>
<p>
Superia 1600 has more contrast, but less color saturation. The white balance
tint gives very pleasing skin tones, and it has this unmistakable Superia look.
</p>
<p>
I found it a bit too desaturated for my taste, though it can be used to great
effect. I also found the grain to be too much. Since I didn't really try to
emulate a specific Superia film, but rather to get a good general use
Superia-like recipe, I ended up tweaking the Superia 1600 recipe to my liking,
making it a tad richer in color, and less grainy.
</p>
<p>
I found that richer colors make the white balance shift more visible, especially
on reds, browns and skin tones, which I like a lot.
</p>
<ul class="org-ul">

<li>Grain Effect: Weak, Small</li>
<li>Color Chrome Effect: Strong</li>
<li>Color Chrome Effect Blue: Strong</li>
<li>White Balance: Daylight, +3 Red &amp; +1 Blue</li>
