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!
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 !
