Yay!! For Blue Skies

When it’s sunny outside with scattered clouds or maybe with just a puff or two, you can never go wrong with this roll bursting with BLUE!

“Yay!!!!!!!!!!!” For Blue Skies!

The Kodak Ektachrome E200 is my default film for any event, outdoor location, and camera! The ISO 200 can be used with any 35mm camera — whether it’s a Lomo LC-A, a Diana Mini, a Holga135BC or a Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim. You can take it anywhere – in your car, in the street, in an amusement park, or in a state park! There is only one prerequisite for me: the sky!

The Sky, You Ask Me Why?

Reason No. 1: It gives you a new and refreshing view! This is the main reason why I have come to love this film! Well at least for me, it has given me a different view of Sin City. Nine out of 10 times I am in Las Vegas, I go to the Downtown Strip in the evening. I mean, who would want to walk under the sun when the casino lights are out, right? However, I take it back now: it’s as lovely to shoot with the sun up! You can actually see the beauty of the structures, not just the dazzling lights… And look at that bright blue sky! Doesn’t it make Las Vegas look so clean and healthy?

Reason No. 2: It gives your pictures more excitement and energy! We went to Disneyland California and I couldn’t imagine the heat and the size of the crowd until we got there! The whole day, all I could think about was how long the line is, how much time it took to ride a minute long ride, and how my feet and legs were sore! Looking at the pictures now, however, all I can remember was how much fun I had, the awesome roller coaster rides, and my nephew’s beautiful smile!

Reason No. 3: It’s perfect for every location. Wherever you are, there’s the endless sky! Whether you’re in the car or in your neighborhood’s park, there’s that big endless sky, that become so blue in your cross-processed film! It’s pretty easy to take fun pictures while stuck in traffic or when you decide to take a walk in the park!

Reason No. 4: It goes with any color. The Valley of Fire, for example, is one of the most monotonous parks I’ve ever seen. You see brown rocks, red rocks, and really red rocks! I was quite amazed at how the blue skies and the white puffy clouds stood out using Kodak E200! It is beautiful with contrasting colors! When cross-processed, there is a slight blue color shift, but you don’t lose the other colors!!

So whether it’s sunny outside with scattered clouds or maybe with just a puff or two, you can never go wrong with this roll bursting with BLUE!
