Kodak Ektachrome EPL (120 iso400) - Surprisingly vibrant colors!

6

After trying out a lot of slides and negatives, I would like to strongly recommend Kodak Ektachrome EPL as it always produces strong vibrant colors!

After cross processing Kodak Ektachrome EPL, there will be a slight blue color shift but the effect is not too overbearing like putting on a blue color gel. It also won’t be like other cross processed slides, with heavy saturation and high contrasts.

The colors are only slightly saturated. under outdoors daylight conditions, I like the fact that the blues will turn into a deep ocean blue color. This gives the photos a layering effect. If shot indoors, there will be a yellow tint. I tried slightly overexposing it outdoors and the colors will look more normal and balanced. This film is also suitable for shooting portraits as well, producing nice, and smooth skin tones!

Let’s enjoy the unique charm of EPL.

    Film Manipulation: Kodak Slides and Bleach

    I want to share with you my experience with some slides when I was in Russia. I'm very sorry for them because I messed them up. They're just ruined and they'll never be the same! But hey, I have thousands of them, so I guess it's not a big deal after all.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
