Strange thing happened with my second roll of this film whereas I used the same camera and the same light condition. The result is totally different. It produced retro greeney-look
Nothing more to say about this film. Agfa CT Precissa 100 is everyone’s favourite slide film. It’s my favourite slide film too. It still can be found easily in the city that I live in with reasonable price. Famous for its vivid colour, brightness, contrast, color shift, and intense blue and red when being cross processed while another brand could only produce monotone xpro. I’ve proved it myself and I really love it. Until strange thing happened with my second roll of this film whereas I used the same camera and the same light condition.
The result is totally different. Instead of the characteristic I mentioned above it produced retro greeney-look not so vibrant colour and less grainy. Some of them looks like scenes from The Matrix movie. The colour of the sky is greeney-blue. I’ve seen this kind of result in other people result but still surprising when it happened to myself. I don’t know for sure why the result is like this. I processed it in a different lab. Maybe that’s the cause. But somehow I like it. One good thing about cross process is the unexpected and surprising result like this. Lovely surprise.
Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!
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.
In the week preceding the elections for the European Parliament, several political rallies were held in Como. As with all other public events in my city I documented one of these rallies, this time using a Russian film camera Zorki 6 loaded with a black and white film roll. Take a look!
Two days from now, Lempertz will hold a sale of 195 photographic prints. The lineup is as varied as the history of photography itself. An 1856 print by an anonymous photographer is in the same group as a top-valued Joseph Szabo shot. A deceptively simple shot of a flower vase is joined by the complex textures of Lucien Hervé. Take a look at the fascinating mix.
Chloé Vollmer-Lo's photos speak for themselves. Every image, whether it's a portrait or a seemingly simple snapshot of a street alley, tells a story. The Paris-based photographer tested the New Petval Lens 85 recently, and the results, as expected, speak volumes. She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.
