If you own a 110 camera, picking up a roll of Color Tiger 110 should be on your to-do list. The Lomography Color Tiger 110 is a fun nostalgic-looking film holding colors that will not disappoint.
I have always had my eyes set on shooting Color Tiger ever since Lomography made the announcement of re-making 110 film. It was more of a matter of when, and not “if.” When I had a few dollars to spare in PayPal, I was fortunate enough to pick up a Minolta Weathermatic-A* for just a couple dollars on eBay.
I was very eager to shoot my first roll of 110 film, so I made a trip to my local Lomography shop and began shooting right away… literally. Here is my first shot of the Lomography Gallery store in West Hollywood.
I then hit the freeway and couldn’t help taking a picture in the rare 40MPH flow of traffic during rush hour.
I stopped at MacArthur Park near downtown Los Angeles to shoot whatever caught my eye.
Since it was a very bright hot and sunny day I decided to grab a little something to eat and drink.
Here are a few other shots I took along my walk.
Later that night.
After shooting I couldn’t wait to see the results of my first 110 roll. When I received them I couldn’t have been happier. The colors have this “vintage” look that is hard to put in words. A look that I have yet to come across on any 35mm film I have shot. The colors pop out beautifully with the slightest shows of grain. It definitely adds a unique character to your shots that will not be overlooked. I highly recommend this film if you are looking into shooting 110 color film.
