Hello everyone! In this article, I am introducing a slide film which is uncommon for lomographers. It is Fuji Velvia 50, as stated from the name, it is an ISO 50 slide film. I think most of the lomographers will be thinking of reddish colours when they see the word Velvia. But not for Fuji Velvia 50. The colours you will get are extremely amazing!
Fuji Velvia 50 was the original film when Fuji Velvia first started to introduce Velvia. Yes, it is an ISO 50 slide film, an uncommon ISO for films, right? At first I thought so too, but not after I tried out my first roll. The colors it produces are amazing and there are no other words to describe it except amazing high contrast!
Unlike Fuji Velvia 100 which gives you the strong reddish colour even if you expose it well with strong sunlight, Fuji Velvia 50 gives almost the natural colour with a thin green and white tint over it. If you look at the photos above, you will get a nice blue color for a sky shot, if not a natural green and white tint for a ‘normal’ sky shot. Personally, I think that Fuji Velvia 50 is the most natural colored slide film from Fuji. But at the same time, it still gives the cross-processed color (high contrast), which lomographers love! There is only one requirement to use this slide film: a camera which allows you to set it to ISO 50. I used a Lomo LC-A for it. It’s worth spending money to get a camera that you are able to set at ISO 50 because you get really amazing results from this slide film. So I hope after reading this review, more lomographers will try Fuji Velvia 50!
Fuji Velvia 50 RVP 35mm is super-saturated and as high-res as film can get. When cross-processed, greens become greener and reds and yellows pop. See the whole range of colour slides in our Shop.
This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
William Eggleston is one of the most important contemporary master and pioneer of color photography. In this article I write a tribute to his particular democratic way of looking around. For him "Nothing was more important or less important", and everything is worthy of being photographed. Again, he is fond of the dear old film; he said that "I don't think much about the digital world, because I am in the analog world!". Read more after the jump!
An Argentinean writer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest, Lorraine Healy is a long-time fan of plastic cameras and is the author of "Tricks With A Plastic Wonder," a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera, available in eBook form at Amazon.com. In this article, Healy explains how she fell hard in love with the Lomography XPro Slide 200 film and why she takes it on her many travels.
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
This is a tutorial for the adventurous Lomographers, for those brave enough to do their own B&W and C-41 work but lacking the confidence to move onto E6. Fear no more! I am an enthusiastic home developer, just like the rest of you, I am not a chemical lab wizard! So if I can pull this off, so can the rest of you. Take a deep breath, relax, and read on. By the end of this article I hope you'll have mustered the courage to give it a go yourselves!
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
