My secret Ingredient for a very satisfying Lomographic meal: Kodak Ektachrome E100G!
If you talk about a crusader, in Venezuela, you are talking about a type of stew (soup typical) that combines chicken and beef. Then you talk about cross-processing slide film, color negative or vice versa. Gastronomically, the cross is very tasty, and Lomographic too. Therefore I present to you my secret ingredient for this process: the Slide Kodak Ektachrome E100G
This film creates wonderfully saturated colors while maintaining a wonderful contrast. Furthermore, the Kodak Ektachrome is spectacular as it gives a fine grain. A nice thing about this film is that although it ‘exploits’ the colors, but it does not ‘over-kill’ the overall tone of the picture. I recommend you shoot in lots of light to get those amazing results.
These photos were taken with my beloved Diana F+, which adds to the Ektachrome. It’s wonderful vignetting and in general, strengthens its virtues. The film also comes in 35mm, so try it with the LC-A which I already did and I’m looking forward to seeing the result. It is going to be great.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
