Lomography Lady Grey: Versatile and Fascinating Shades of Grey

This is a film that is good to use both day and night! Read my review of the Lomography Lady Grey film.

I admit, at the beginning I was pretty doubtful. I couldn’t believe a Lomography film could give such fascinating results, let alone that it could be versatile. But the Lomographic Society always has an ace in the hole, or better, a queen.

The first time I used this film with my Rollei 35s, careful to follow the ISO suggestion. The Lady in Grey gave me wonderfull shades, with an incredible number of greys and a really thin grain.

Then I told myself “well, let’s try!” and (first with Rollei, then with the beloved Canon FTB) I decided to use it as a 1600 ISO film, “pulling it” about two stops. And here we are with the surprises! The grain was still pretty thin, the contrast was a little bit increased cutting off some greys, but the result was fascinating! Really great shots.

Lady Grey is pretty good with pictures of particular architectures and statues, but I think its real potential comes out with portraits. You’ll enter a fantastic world, romantic, sometimes rough and contrasted, others full of shades of grey.

I really recommend it to you, better if used with your favourite camera. Test as much as you want and pull it in any direction. The Lady seems delicate but it has a real vesatile behaviour!

Lomography’s Earl Grey is an exquisite black and white 35mm ISO 100 film that will surely give your shots an extra dose of style and class. Whether you’re taking landscapes or portraits, you will get jaw-dropping results with Earl Grey super-fine grain and wide tonal range. See our selection of Lomography films here.
