This film is a very versatile one. It can be used in many light conditions, on sunny days, cloudy days, in rooms… I am absolutely a beginner with analogue photography (except in my childhood when I photographed with an automatic camera) and I am also a clumsy person. That’s why I sometimes confounded the aperture settings. It happened that I used the full-clouds-aperture when the sun shined. But I had never got results which were over- or underexposed. I can definitely recommend this film to beginners!
And don’t forget the vibrant colors. The pictures always look good.
I have no real scanner, but rather photograph the negatives with light behind; after inverting, my pictures have a blue cast. I don’t have much experience, but in comparison with some negatives I had of yore, it is really easy to remove this cast with image processing applications.
All in all, you won’t make a mistake, if you’ll buy this film. The colors, the variety and the low price convinced me.

Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!
Keep experimenting with your analogue shots and try out many different styles. This time, let these filter photographs from the community show you how easy it is to create images that are popping with effects and color!
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.
