How do you make a dull day into a bright joyful photo? Load some Provia into your chosen weapon and let loose some wild colours.
My first forays into Lomography were filled with wonder as I looked at other peoples’ bright, colourful, wildly saturated shots and I soon learned that they were the result of cross processing colour slide films in C41 chemistry. I first tried with Fuji Provia and really loved the bright colours I got.
I soon grabbed myself another 5 pack of Fuji slide film without realising I’d picked up Provia instead of Velvia. However I absolutely fell in love with the gorgeous bright tones of the cross processed Provia pics. It was my first choice of film when I went to the Perhentian Islands in Malaysia and the results definitely didn’t disappoint. This film also makes a fairly ordinary day in Wiltshire look bright and exciting.
The results always make me smile and somehow make my memories of the time that I took that photograph more vivid and fun!

The Indisposable Concept Journey So Far Early this year, we came across the Indisposable Concept, an international photography project which asks participants to document a week of their daily memories with a disposable camera. The project has since grown in a year, with hundreds of participants, thousands of film snaps, and countless memories from analogue lovers across the globe. Find out more about the Indisposable Concept journey so far after the jump!
