Lomography is about colors, isn't it? We all love photos with high contrasting colors like popping red, blue, yellow, green, and etc. Then, most of us think that to get this kind of photos, we need xpro (cross process) to achieve it. I thought so too at the beginning when i just started lomography. But today I am going to show you guys how to get high contrasting photos with negative films instead of slide films!
Before I found out this method, I thought that shooting with negative films give you just this kind of photo.
You will need:
The method is very simple! Load your films (preferably ISO 100 or ISO 200) into your camera and shoot it during a sunny day when the sky is BLUE! Remember to set your ISO to ISO 50 for an ISO 100 film and ISO 100 for an ISO 200 film before you shoot. The purpose of setting the ISO in this manner is to prevent having back-lit photos.
Yes, it’s so simple, just shoot it on a super sunny day with blue sky. Personally, I think having blues in your photos just make your lomographs look lovely! By doing so, even a normal negative film can give you high contrasting colours in your photos! Try this method out with slide films too as this will give you even stronger contrast!
The strong contrast and whacked out colors from cross processing slide films always give a great contrast to dramatic silhouette snapshots. Congratulations to sushi_9009 for having our Photo of the Day!
Today's The Daily Hex is one of those unexpected colors that might pop out when you cross process those precious slide films. See our handpicked Deep Fir photos and be inspired to take photos even at night!
From warm golden yellow to dramatic green hues, Karine swears by this film's capability in producing a wide spectrum of bold and saturated colors. Because of this, she always carries a roll or two in her suitcase whenever she travels.

Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone.

Have you ventured into light painting before? It's so fun and there are so many ways for you to explore it, we promise you'll never get bored. The folks here at HQ had a blast playing around with the Lomo'Instant and the result was a bunch of adorable, colorful photos!
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
Petzval lens are designed for a Canon or Nikon SLR mounts and a selection of brass or black for each camera brand is available in our stores. And start shooting with images full of sharpness, crispness and bokeh effects!
If you'd be shooting in low light, at night, or in any other situation that would require a high speed film for best results, why don't you try the Lomography Color Negative 800 for 35mm cameras? Allow five of our community members to convince you with their respective reviews in this installment of Reviews on Rewind.
Seeing that we love to spread the cheer around here, we're giving you another chance to load up on our awesome film with today's Advent deal!

Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
