My Secret Ingredient for a Delicious Xpro

6

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.

And now to prepare more photos for you to like!

    I have one 120 roll of this I'm thinking of using this weekend. I've never used it before and was thinking I should process normal first before xpro. Seeing your pictures makes me think differently. Hmmm. Do I order the crusader or the plain chciken stew? Decisions....

    I was wondering if I have to specifically as for my film to be cross processed when using this film. Thanks!
