Transform the Colors of the Agfa CT Precisa!

3

My favourite camera to use with a cross-processed Agfa CT Precisa is the Lomo LC-A. For a long time, I have wanted to test my color filters---which I usually use with normal color film---on a slide film for x-pro. Finally I have done it and I'm in love with the results.

All you need is a red color transparency and a camera. My transparency is from the colour filter set by LEE, with which I’ve already transformed some color photos.

I simply taped the transparency on my LC-A and set the camera to ISO 50 instead of 100.

If I want to take pictures without the red transparency, I simply stick it on the back of the camera for storage.

For the the next roll of film, I will try a few other color transparencies. I’m curious about what will come out. And I’m so in love with the results, I doubt if anything can beat these!

See for yourself.

I think the colors are reminiscent of films by Fuji or even of Redscale, but quite different. So, try it out!

    Wonderful article!!! You can shoot IR on LCA+... Put some #88A gel filter over lens, then put a bit of the same gel over light sensor, and cover film window with electrician's tape. Also, load camera in the dark. Exposures will be long, so cable release and tripod, and for reciprocity failure, set the light meter thing to ISO 100-200 for Rollei Infrared 400. Enjoy!! Merry Christmas!!

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    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.

    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.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    Tipster: Three Easy Distressed Masks for the Lomo'Instant

    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.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
