We received a lot of feedback from our Lomo-friends asking what the Lomography Color X-Pro Sunset Strip film would look like when processed with E-6 chemicals. So here are some shots to relieve you of your curiosity.
If you’re wondering what E-6 is, here’s a brief explanation:
E-6 is a chemical cocktail used for processing colour slide film (also known as ‘reversal’ or ‘transparency’ film). You will get slides as a result of this type of processing. Think of slides as the slides that your grandparents used for slide projectors to bore everyone with their photos from their last vacation!
If however you run a slide film through C-41 chemicals (intended for color negative film), the results are shocking (in a good way!!). The entire color balance and contrast level of your images is thrown out of whack. Photos turn out saturated or with high contrast and you might get all kinds of other unexpected results as well! Different slide films have different characteristics when cross-processed. Some turn out more yellow or more green while others turn purple or red.
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
