La Vie en Rose is not just a movie, it’s what happens when you cross-process Fuji Sensia.
Fuji Sensia 100 ISO film is a professional line of Fuji. As 100 ISO does not leave much grain and the contrast is quite natural without saturating the photographs. But the most captivating thing is that it is a fantastic film when cross processed. I paint the world pink. Whether you love or hate it.
Keep in mind that if you request digital copies of your negative, the laboratory can scan the high contrast than a regular scanner can not, so it is best to let them scan the negative for you.
This film is not yet extinct, but who knows how much longer it will be around. For now you can find it the shop online.
As a recommendation, push this film by 3 stops.
Here are some photos using the technique of pushing from 100 to 800 ISO.
With its pro-grade features, the Fuji Instax 55i might be a little different from other instant cameras when it comes to operating it. Fret not, though, here's a quick tutorial to help you get started!
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.
It's a great feeling when you get a camera back to work even though you thought it was already unusable because its particular type of film is no longer in production. Here's how you can do it with a Polaroid camera from the 80-series.
What happens when you expose both sides of the Lomochrome Purple? As fellow lomographer alienmeatsack has put it, "Magic is what happens." Check out the results of his little experiment after the jump!
This film has fine grain, especially when cross-processed in C41. And if you use a Lomo camera, maybe the LC-A or the LC-Wide, the results will be more interesting with strong vignettes in your pictures!
Black and white photography is timeless on its own but what happens if you pair it up with a panoramic camera? The answer is in this series of B&W photographs taken with the Lomography Horizon Cameras.
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.
