My good experience with Kodak Portra 160NC cross processed!
This is actually the first time that I used Kodak Portra 160NC. I also never thought twice of having it cross-processed despite knowing that this is my my virginal roll with this kind of film. It is always a question at what rate of iso should I set my Lomo LC-A to using this, but I don’t want to think too much about it and have it exposed at 100 ASA which is the best thing to do for increasing the contrast for my shots. I also suggest doing it on 50 ASA setting if you want things much crazier with this Portra!
I was really shocked with the results afterwards! I’ve never seen blue on this kind of scale, it’s just so sublime! And the tones as well, just too perfect for my expectations! Not to mention some of the intensive reds was apparent on my shots, wow! It looked really crazy! Few of the shots I did was exposed with tungsten light, ans it’s still amazingly gorgeous! As all of the tones were soaked in to greens and yellows!
Definitely this is the film that I will be using again! And maybe next time I will do more pictures in artificial light or with Colorsplash flash using the red or orange filter. I think it will yield another interesting results!

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.
Considered as one of the best 35mm SLR cameras, the Nikon F2 is indeed one of the best experiences on film I’ve ever had. Fully manual and almost impossible to break, this historic camera is really marvelous to use.

When I held the Lomo LC-A 120 in my hands for the first time, I immediately noticed its good feel and beautiful design. The LC-A 120 obviously, is truly, related to the queen of all Lomo cameras, the LC-A.

Shooting with film can be considered a labor of love. From carefully loading the film and adjusting for lighting conditions to the darkroom process, it’s a laborious process but certainly a fulfilling experience. What more if you created your own cameras?
