This is a film you quickly fall in love with and if you're a beginner, this film is a great option to start with your first cross processing experiences.
The Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 35mm is a very good option when you’re starting to get into x-pro. The price is very affordable for a three pack (compared to other films) and the heavy green tones on the results when you cross process are very warm.
Since this is an ISO 200 film, it plays well with light. So if you have a bright sunny day, this is a great option. It will also take some light clouds but do take into account it’s a 200, not a 400 so check out through the window for those light rays.
I’m not a big fan of the way it gives out the skin tones, but hey, that’s just me. On the other hand, the way it makes the reds burst is absolutely awesome. I’ve found myself hunting red things through town just to see that deep almost blood like red ooze into those 36 frames.
Another great thing I do love about this film is the amazing contrast and saturation it gives you when you get the light right. This means this is a great film to use with your *LC-A*. Do keep in mind this is a slide film so the way to get these colors is to go x-pro (as the name says) or develop using C-41 (color development) instead of the E-6 (slide development.) Just remember that when you hit the lab.
So, I guess it’s true what they say It’s always greener on the other side.
This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
The strong contrast and whacked out colors from cross processing slide films always give a great contrast to dramatic silhouette snapshots. Congratulations to sushi_9009 for having our Photo of the Day!
Ed Choi regards Lomography as one of the best things that happened to him. In this interview, the latest member to join the roster of LomoGurus talks about how cross processing slide films sparked a great friendship, taking instant photos in Himalayas, and creating the perfect double exposure photograph.
Sonja started her analog adventures during her teenage years. She took her first film photographs when she was 13 and has been in love with the magic of the process since. Her idea of a perfect day involves developing film rolls while listening to jazz and having a cup of tea in between. In this interview, she recalls about her experience with her first Lomography camera, a Holga 120 CFN.
When doing a film swap with a fellow film photography enthusiast, it is always important to show off your best side while letting it blend with your partner's photography style. Today's Awesome Album shows exactly this and more!
Throwing chemicals, fire, and scratching emulsion are just a few ways of experimenting with film. But there's another process that completely destroys it (or, if you're lucky, creates something amazing), that is as spastic as a drunken man staggering his way home after a night at the pub - literally.
And it all comes down to darkness.
