I have shot with this film recently and am quite surprised with the various colors I got: blue, pink, purple, etc. Don't believe me? Read on and see the photos!
With Agfa CT Precisa 100 being a slide film, it can be processed both using E6 (slide processing) or C41 (cross-processing). For this review, I did E6 processing to access what the slide has to offer. Blue and green hues show up more prominently with nice smooth grains. Even for low light and undererxposed shots, the colors are still able to be captured with very fine grains, which seems to suggest that this film is quite forgiving. Greens are especially visible with this slide. This film leans toward the cooler color tones and looks tamed. No exaggerated color shifts.
However, I noticed that this film has more to offer when you expose it to extreme lighting conditions. I used the same roll to take some sunset shots and the color I got after developing the film blows my mind. You get red, pink, blue, and purple. I think the color tones available when using the Precisa for extreme lighting conditions are amazing. Its like a color palette on steroids!
Try it and see if you get the same result. ThIs film is definitely a keeper for me! :)
Gloucestershire-based photographer Michael Sullivan loves to shoot film. Recently Michael shot with the Lomo LC-A 120 loaded with color negative and Lomography Xpro Slide Film, and the results were quite fabulous. Meet the man behind the camera here.
A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.
Ellie Smith is a London-based fashion and portrait photographer with a real talent for taking simple and beautiful portraits. Recently, she took the Petzval Art Lens to the streets of East London to capture some urban shots. Read on for the full interview and see her striking photographs.
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
With a Lomo'Instant Camera and a Splitzer, you can get absolutely funny and creative images. I took it to the highest level and exposed my shots from 4 to 8 times! What you'll see next is an impressive mix of colors, textures, places and people captured in a very surreal way!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
As many of you would already know, shooting under low light conditions requires more than a steady grip (or a tripod) if you're aiming for outstanding results. You must also have the proper gear, and that, of course, includes film. In this post, we list down five fast films that work their best under such conditions.
