Crazy Colors with Kodak E100S!

7

When I found this film in my favorite photo lab in Bandung, I was excited and really want to try it!. After finishing up a roll of Agfa Precisa CT 100 on Film Photography Day, I put this film into my LC-wide and started to shoot! Yesterday I processed it and BOOOM!! This film is so crazy!

After receiving the negative from the lab, I straight headed to home and scan the negatives but when I cut the negative I thought “ahhh this is another Kodak slide such EB, EBX, or EVS….” . When I scanned it, my face was like slapped so hard by the photos in front of me! My thought was all wrong and my prediction was slammed! Kodak E100S is something else!

Some might say “it’s green green green” or just “so greeeeen!!”. I really thought of that at first glance, but every time I predict something for this film, this film keeps on giving me surprises! Crazy!

Portraits!

If you see these portraits, you’ll see the dominant green of course, but the yellowish clean skin is something I can’t achieve when I’m shooting with Kodak EBX, EB, and EVS. I sort of compare these magical Kodak slides because the Kodak E100S that I used was expired for some time but I don’t know exactly when. So far, I could say there’s green green green if shooting outside. Right?

The shot above I shot above my L-Case and set the ISO to 200. The grain is fine for an expired film and to be fair I got the same result using the same setting. Check this out!

Green and yellow is the trademark color of this film if not using flash. As I’m reviewing this film for the first time and there’s a couple shots of trial and error using Colorsplash Flash. Maybe I set the wrong ISO on the camera, or the flash is too strong, or I pick the wrong colors and I don’t know but look at these!

Overexposure? Too strong Colorsplash Flash? and it doesn’t end there! Here’s some more!

Crazy! By looking at these crazy colors by cross processing this film, my thought was just “crazy!” but in the same time I really want to try again and try to tame this crazy film. I want more and more of craziness!

I think it’s legit for overlapping exposures using your LC-Wide too!

See the colors going on all over these shots! Yes! This film offers you all these crazy colors! Maybe you hate it or maybe you’ll love it, but at least if you find it in a store or somewhere I give you all one simple advice : Buy it! It’s now a dead stock film, so I wish you all find it in eBay and be sure it acquire some rolls of this crazy film. Have fun and taste the crazy colors of Kodak E100S !

    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!

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    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.

    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!

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    12 Months, 12 Projects: March Of Caffenol

    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.
