Mixing It Up with Film

2

In this review, let me share with you my first experiences with the Lomography Mixed Film Pack and my Diana F+, and some of the resulting photos.

I just bought a new Diana F+ Black Jack at my local Lomography Gallery in LA, and I bought a pack of Lomography Color Negative 400 120 speed film. I was hooked before the first roll was shot, but there are so many types of film. Should I try black & white first or maybe capture everything with vivid, saturated color, or maybe try cross-processing slide film? Enter the Lomography Mixed Film Pack 120!

This awesome pack of lomo goodness contains:

• 1 roll of Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 120
• 1 roll of Lomography Lady Grey Black and White 400 120
• 1 roll of Lomography Color Negative 800 120

Maybe you’ll start out like me with the CN 800 at a friend’s birthday party? Social events are a great place to take your lomo camera. There are friends to shoot and don’t forget to capture the cake. It’s especially good for indoor photos.

Don’t worry. You won’t be the only one taking party photos either so go ahead and experiment. You won’t have to retouch your lomographs and you’ll even get some great vignettes, especially with the Diana+ flash. Your friends will even enjoy the cross processed charm of the X-Pro 200. .

Last but certainly not least is Lady Grey. She is very sharp and crisp but you can also experiment with her like I did. Flashes and double exposures turn out well and always have a surprise or two.

That’s my first experience with the mixed film pack. It won’t be the last.
