My X-Pro Surprise

Imagine my surprise after cross processing an expired Fuji Velvia100. Soon after getting my very first Lomo camera, an LC-A+ in December 2011, one of the first rolls that I used was an expired Fuji Velvia 100. Since Lomography is known for cross-processed images, I was eager to see the results.

LC-A+ paired with an expired Fuji Velvia 100 cross processed.

Street photography is one of my favorite genres of photography, so I decided to use the roll on the streets of New York City. The afternoon light was gorgeous that day while I covered Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue.

Lo and behold, imagine the pleasant surprise after I got the film developed – I was stunned to see the black-and-white tones! That was the last thing that I was expecting to see. But, I am not complaining, at all. In fact, I was thrilled to see the results.

This is a beautiful surprise that I do not mind getting every often.

The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!

    That has nothing to do with the film or xpro. The lab technician probably saw the funky negatives and thought "That can't be right." and then scanned it as black and white.

    no way velvia would ever ever ever be black and white unless they scanned it wrong

    You might be right. Since it was not a pro lab, I did not specifically ask them to cross-process it. The technician developed it as a C-41 film and this is what I got. Either way, I'm not complaining. : )
