Expired Fuji Sensia 200: Add Some Zest To Your Photos!

As keen Lomographers I’m sure you are always on the lookout for exciting new film emulsions & ways to give your images that extra PUNCH. If you haven’t already, you should try cross-processing Fuji Sensia 200.

I have tried lots of different types of slide film for cross-processing including Fuji’s Velvia (great for warm pink tones) and Provia (with its dark blue/green hues), but never Sensia. So you can imagine my excitement when a Lomo friend gave me a roll of expired Sensia 200 to try!

When I finally finished shooting the roll I realised the precious Sensia had been residing in my LC-A for nearly 6 months (I had spent a lot of the year shooting black and white with my Holga). I could not remember what might be on the roll, and I held my breath a little when the negatives came back from the lab.

I was not disappointed, the crazy cross-proccessing colours really POPPED! Peppermint blends with apple green and surf blues in a rich soup of zesty colour.

Mostly I shoot in the daytime, I like natural light the best and the Sensia loaded in my LC-A unsurprisingly performed well under these conditions.

Quirky subjects for a quirky film

I took several shots of my spaniel Hedley on a beach in Nofolk and it was here the film really came into its own. The yellow sand really contrasts with the green/blue in the sky & sea and makes the subject stand out. As vibrant as the overall colours is, the natural brown tones of Hedley’s coat were picked up really well too.

The Sensia also performed well in cold conditions. I took this shot of Hedley’s best pal Bilbo in a snow covered garden.
