This film preset has a noticeably cool color temperature. Forrest Lane specifically designed FujiColor 400 C to simulate the unique desaturated aesthetic of images taken with old analog cameras, but with light blue accents. As a result, you can get the charm of vintage photos and the added nostalgic feel of cool hues.

We love how the preset’s tones and colors look subdued. As you can see in our examples below, the cool layer of this preset complements the softness of its aesthetic. The result is always artistic, regardless of the subject and scene. It creates such a beautiful and understated drama.
Mutes Tones and Colors for an Analog Film Effect
Soft Drama. The photo above takes on a cooler and subdued feel after applying this preset. The skin tone is paler as blue tones are added to both highlights and shadows. There is also a decrease in vibrance and luminance to give an overall tranquil feel.
We consider this as one of our favorite film presets for portraits. Even with its lack of vibrance, FujiColor 400 C makes up for it by instead drawing out tender expressions in portraits. Its light and soft aesthetic reveals so much of the subject’s face and features.
Adds a Dramatic Cool Tint
Cool and Calm. With a simple adjustment and the right blending, the preset can transform the mood of any photograph. Take the scene above, for example. The warmly illuminated street becomes noticeably whiter because of the infusion of blue tones. The white walls now have cooler hues as well. This shift in color temperature combined with some film settings produces such a nostalgic effect.
Produces a Detailed Retro Film Style
Textured. This free preset is also good for outdoor shots. As you can see in the example above, there are now clearer details on the walls and peaks. This is because of its sharpening enhancements. After all, when taking travel or landscape photos, it is important to capture as much detail as possible. Textures play an important role in this type of photograph.
You can instantly notice how the mood changed in the above After photo. This is true for most analog presets for Lightrooom, after all. It is great for both beginner and professional photographers who want to have a classic look to their shots.
Simulates the Classic Film’s Desaturated Drama
Dramatic and Elegant. Look at how there is an immediate transformation in the mood of the photo. We like how the shadows on the sides blend well with the preset’s flattened desaturated effect. Even with its softness, even when lacking in intensity, it serves as a dramatic accent to the scene. You can take advantage of this effect by applying the preset on photos with a wide range of tones. Try it on shots with a lot of elements, like those taken outdoors and urban scenes.
