I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
I’ve known this film ever since I joined Lomography. Since day one, I’ve been hearing about one film that people talked about the most. It is the Agfa Precisa CT! Everybody told me that I must use this film!
On last year’s Film Photography Day, I used it with the Lomo LC-Wide but forgot to set it to ISO 200. The photos turned out a little overexposed but they still got blue tones on it!
Got the blues? This time around, I used my Lomo LC-A+ Russian Lens to get the feeling right. I set it to ISO 200, and since I’m using the LC-A+, I was pretty confident (or not?!) that I will get the blues. Oh, well, it’s not so bad. I’m still getting used to shooting with this film so experiments must be done to get some blues. Well, it’s not a mad experiment – just shooting in low light condition. As simple as that!
Under not-so-good lighting conditions, this film surprised me a lot. Maybe I was just lucky. It makes the colors in your photos pop, too!
Earlier this year, I loaded it again to my LC-Wide and set it on a higher ISO. Why? To get the blues!
So blue, so Agfa Precisa CT!
Even though I used it to take doubles – accidental doubles or whatever you call it – this film still gives me the blues!
One precious lesson from the gallery above: the Agfa Precisa CT can be used it with blue flash! Just how blue is that? I know it’s such a waste to use this rare gem like that, but come on! One must use it brutally – bluetall, or brutal blue! Oh, that’s such a nice phrase!
Use it with either the Lomo LC-A+ RL or the LC-Wide, or even with the Fuji Silvi. This film got the blues!
