Mélange à Trois: The Cure for the Indecisive Lomographer!

3

I know you're itching to try some new film. But what's that...you're allergic to commitment? There a remedy, and it's all in one convenient package!

Try your luck with the medium format Mixed Film Pack!

We’ve all been there: dying to buy some film but afraid to commit to a three-pack of one kind. Perhaps you’re on a budget and you want to mix it up without breaking the bank. Or (try this one on for size) you’re a newbie Lomographer and you just don’t know which kind of film to feed your brand new Diana F+. You can always count on a box of the Mixed Film Pack (120) to cure your worries.

Color Negative 800
Lomography has made a very reliable high-speed color negative film, with rich colors and a fine grain. In my opinion, it looks really similar to Fuji PRO 800Z. It’s a top notch choice if you’re taking your Diana F+ out for a night on the town, shooting some live music indoors, experimenting with light painting, or on a Lomowalk in cloudy weather!

Color Negative 800: perfect for a cloudy day, indoors with a flash, or light painting!

X-Pro Slide 200
I can safely say I’m devoted to this emulsion. Its unique blend of greens, blues, and yellows when cross-processed had me from the start. If you’ve never shot with this awesome slide film before, you’re in for a real treat! Take it outdoors, but don’t be afraid to use it with a flash! Either with natural or electronic light, Lomography’s X-pro Slide 200 has never let me down.

Explosive colors, never a disappointment with the X-pro Slide 200!

Lady Grey Black and White 400
I’ve had great luck with Lady Grey in 35mm before – amazing contrast, beautiful deep blacks, unreal images. So when I grabbed my first Mixed Film Pack I was stoked to try out the Lady Grey in medium format. I don’t know why, because I loaded it in subdued light, and the roll was normal enough when I took it out and taped it up, yet it seemed like there were plenty of light leaks through the paper backing. But that’s the beauty of the Mixed Film Pack – you get to try it out before committing to a whole three-pack!

I still love the way my Lady Grey photos turned out despite the light leaks.

All in all, I ad a great experience with my Mélange à trois…and if you’re a Lomographer looking for something new, it could be just the thing for you!

    Agfa Precisa CT 35mm: The Blues!

    I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Classic × Classic : Using a Leica M3 camera to shoot with the New Petzval Art lens

    I participated in the Kickstarter campaign and purchased my very own new Petzval lens. I can't wait to use with with my digital camera to experience its wonderful bokeh effect. I also wanted to try its effects when using a film camera but the lens has an EF mount. I didn't have a Canon camera. See what I did with it after the jump.

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

    Solo Biking Routes: Ubud in Bali, Indonesia

    Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
