Fuji Velvia (35mm, 100 iso)

6

Velvia! Veelvia! Veeelvia! Call it! Oooops, this name, just for itself, its proper music, has an astonishing poetical resonance in the labyrinths of my mind...

One of my favourite films ever, Fuji Velvia 35mm 100 iso, cross-processed as loved by lomographers, will give us marvelous images, marvelous freakish colours, and not so freakish, but always very intense, as we all like. Also intense contrast (with the skills of our beloved and mythical LC-A+…)

I haven´t tried this film e6 processed, just c41. So I can´t talk about it e6 processed, but c41.

Reds, violets, purples, pinks, blues, greens, yellows, golds… I´m not so good at naming colours, so forgive me if I haven’t mentioned all of them well according to this film… But those colours I have named are all perfectly reached by this precious stone, Velvia… Let us see some examples, the best way (or at least one of the best) to know about this emulsion (and of course, an excellent excuse to stop writing…):

Cloudy and snowy (last lomograph it was late dusk)
Cloudy and misty:
Sunny (Be careful: easy to superexpose. Intense light situations, better set the LC-A+ at 200 iso (400 in extreme conditions), as in multiexposures, gaining contrast). Following shots, however, all wit my LC-A+ set at 100 iso
Whenever you want

Shoot it, impress it with light! And we must destroy the preconception this film gives us a red or reddish atmosphere in all situations. It is false. This film deserves not preconceptions because its colour range it´s not narrow. So try to get all rainbow colours (and maybe others, I don´t know…) and you/we will see.

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Sirius Space Mission to the Third Planet (A Tribute to Peter Mitchell)

    Imagine an alien space mission from a planet of the Sirius Star System to an abandoned industrial zone of Como, a city situated in the North of Italy. The alien photographer named sirio174, used a powerful futuristic camera, called Lomo Lubitel 166U loaded with a Kodak Portra film roll. Yes, no digital, because the future is...analogue! During his journey, he learned the most common language of our planet -- English -- and he wrote this article for us. Read more after the jump!

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
