My incredible experience with the new Lomochrome film!
Earlier in the year we saw the announcement of Lomochrome (Am I the only one that says that in a Russian accent?) and most of us were all pretty freakin’ excited! Not thinking I would be able to afford it, my friend and I split a 35mm 5 pack between us. Then August came around and my friend sent a message ’’Guess what just arrived?!", to be perfectly honest we both completely forgot about it! Suddenly, my initial excitement came flooding back to me! I raced over, paid up the money I still owed, and shoved my first roll straight into my LC-Wide! I took it to shoot nature where I could see a lot of different colours to experiment with (Unfortunately Australia is mostly just crappy brown gum trees). I finally got the roll developed and printed just today, and my mind imploded in on itself and created a black hole sucking all the colour right through my eyeballs! All these purples, pinks and blues! It looks like what someone would see on way too many psychedelic drugs! I was blown away completely by the results!
Dear Lomography staff, I have NO clue how you made this film, but whatever you do, please make more!
Two years ago I swore to myself, I'll be coming back soon!" This October my chance finally came and I flew for the second time to New York City to visit my dear colleagues in the Lomography Gallery Store New York. What I didn’t see coming, though, is the opportunity to test a new secret film during my trip.

I made a short comparison between the "legendary" Kodak EIR Infrared film and the new LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400. Both pictures were made with the same camera-objective-combi: A Canon AE-1 Program with a 24mm wide-angle lens.
What happens when you take one crazy film guy, some new and interesting Lomography film, and see what it can do? Magic is what happens, and that is why you need to try some of these techniques when shooting the LomoChrome Turquoise yourself!

The LomoChrome Turquoise film boasts bold and unpredictable colors, so I thought "redscaling" it would yield an even more dramatic result. Much to my surprise, the dominant color palette of my photographs revealed LomoChrome Turquoise's soft and delicate side.
We are very excited to present you with our new film, Lomography LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400! This emulsion develops in C-41 in 35mm and 120 formats. Limited stock of 5,000 rolls for pre-order are available, so reserve your rolls now; delivery of first stock estimated for April 2015.
The LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 is a color negative film that uses false colors and gives your images an infrared effect. In fact, the greens turn to purple and yellows turn to pink. See how it fares on a photowalk after the jump.
