Fujifilm Fujichrome T64: Open Your Eyes to Another World

Head out into the streets on a sunny day and try shooting with Fujichrome T64, then have it cross-processed. You will see your world as you've never seen it before!

One of the most exciting things about doing photography the Lomography-way is trying different types of films and challenging the rules to obtain truly unexpected results. Fujichrome T64 is one of those films that will allow you to open a door to an alternative reality.

Fujichrome T64 is a professional slide film, originally developed for studio/indoors photography. The “T” in the name stands for Tungsten, indicating that this emulsion was designed to balance for Tungsten/artificial studio lighting.

Being a slow film, it has very fine grain and a good saturation of colors when process with E6 chemicals. Therefore, it is the perfect film when professional photographers need to get great and reproducible results in the studio.

But us, Lomographers, like to push the envelope and challenge the limits of the material we work with, right? So, as any good Lomographer should, I felt compelled to take this film to shoot outdoors (I can almost hear the guys at Fuji saying “Wrong!”) and process it with C-41 chemicals (I can certainly hear the guys at Fuji screaming “WRONG!!!”). The results? Great pictures with amazingly dreamy and saturated colors!

Since it is an ISO 64 film, it requires quite a lot of light. Ideally, you need to shoot it in a bright sunny day and using a camera with automatic exposure control, such as our beloved LC-A+. Depending on the lighting conditions and how you scan it, your pictures will have a shift towards blue or towards pink/violet.

As a rule of thumb, I would say that the brighter it is, the more pink your photos will get. In any case, regardless of the final result, I’m fairly certain the photos you will get with Fujichrome T64 will take you to a warm, calm and dreamy — yet strangely familiar — reality.
