Finally I have managed to test the new Lomography Color X-Pro Sunset Strip 100. The results are quite crazy, but read for yourself!
The Lomography Color X-Pro Sunset Strip 100 is a new slide film with ISO 100. It’s a 35mm film with 36 exposures per roll. The film has been manipulated in order to produce mad color effects. The photos should be dipped in blue / brown colors. Especially for shooting in low light, this film is recommended because of the effect it will occur more.
Here we go: I took some of the photos in daylight and the others in low light. I cross-processed the film in C-41.
I was too lazy to self-develop the film, so I brought it to the drugstore. When looking at the negatives you see that the film is colored in the middle. The part around the sprockets is ‘normal’. How the film behaves when you expose also the sprockets, I can’t describe because I exposed the test film with my Lomo LC-Wide.
The photos that I took in daylight show a strong blue:
Photos I took in the house: blue colors are emphasized, but the colors of the photos are decent. In addition, the photos show in greenish / brownish color.
I don’t know how to find the new film. The blue colors that arose during daylight shots are definitely extreme. I like the photos of community members who have developed the film in E6. I will try out the film definitely again!
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
The Splitzer is a small slice'n'dice accessory that allows you to do all kinds of crazy stuff with your Lomo'Instant camera. For this gallery, we experimented with splitting faces and the results are quite hilarious!

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.

The best thing about working for Lomography is having first access to new products. Imagine everyone's excitement when the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M was delivered to the headquarters in Vienna, where members of the Lomography team took turns testing this tiny yet powerful optic on various cameras. Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.
On the occasion of the German DVD release of Wim Wenders' latest documentary, "Das Salz der Erde (The Salt of the Earth)," on April 9, we asked you to send us your best black and white photographs. You have done your best and so making the decision was quite difficult. Read on to find out who will be celebrating with DVDs and piggies!
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
We had a huge response to the Lomography x Life competition and the Black and White theme showed off what great photographers you all are. It was a tough decision to make but we've finally chosen the winners. Will it be you?
