Get Out of This World Colors with the Fuji Astia 100

5

We didn’t need to browse through many pictures to come up with great snaps taken with the Fuji Astia. That’s just how good your photos will look like if you use this one of a kind film!

Just get enough light and let her rip. That’s probably what I’m going to do if I get a hold of a few rolls of Fuji Astia 100 film. Every photo in this small gallery is just dripping with amazing colors and eye-popping saturation.

This series of photos from our fellow community members make post-processing maestros look bad in front of their computer monitors. It’s like the Fuji Astia 100 just makes pink cotton candy out of clouds, aquamarine syrup for water and skies and cast a green afterglow for those amazing afternoon shots. If you’re still not convinced with the power of film after this series, I just don’t know what will get you.

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
