Fuji Reala, for all things natural

I love photos that capture a natural feel, color, and clarity. If you feel the same, let me recommend Fuji Reala.

When I began with Lomography, Fuji Reala was the film that my local lab stocked. I guess I began using it by chance… I quickly saw what this film was capable of. I like to capture bright, yet natural colors; and whether we are talking skin tones, grass, skies, water or neon lights, I’ve gotten great results with this film.

This film works a treat together with a Lomo LC-A. Make sure you use that light meter to it’s full potential! Don’t be scared to hold that shutter button down for a minute and a half in what seems like total darkness! You will be amazed what you will capture, great color saturation has resulted for me, time and time again.

I particularly love the way this film draws out green; grass and trees always seem so lush. If you are using this film in a camera with fixed exposure time, you will need to take care, it is a 100iso after all! Go for a bright sunny day, or be brave and push things a little with the bulb setting. My choice is the LC-A, let that light meter do it’s magic with a great film.

    I have had mixed results with this film in different cameras. My best result is in bright sun (as you say), with the Lubitel...
