If you like to cross process your slide film and prefer high contrast but with only a subtle colourshift, this just might be the film for you!
When I first loaded this high-speed slide film into my Lomo LC-A I was expecting dramatic colour shifts and huge amounts of contrast when developed in C-41 chemicals, but when I got my scans back from the lab I was suprised to find I was only half right…huge contrasts but only a very subtle shift in colour! The film seems to prefer orange and red tones as opposed to the blues and greens produced by fan favourites such as Fuji Velvia and Agfa Precisa. Combine this with a fairly high amount of grain and the final result has a warm vintage feel without the colours being too washed out and dull.
Use a flash or the B setting on your camera for some seriously bold shots, and point your lens towards the sky (especially when the sun is setting) for some very smooth transitional colours without a massive amount of drama. Overexpose your shots by a stop or two and you’ll get some fantastic results!

Fresh from the Lab: I Climbed the Highest Mountain A year ago I tore the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in my left knee. Six months ago, I had an operation. For the half-year anniversary I wanted to do something special, so I did. I climbed the highest Slovenian mountain.
