We all love saturated colours and high contrast, but what about the other end of the spectrum?

Lomographers sometimes get so hung up on saturated colours and high contrast, that we almost entirely forget about the opposite end of the experimental spectrum: pale, washed out colours and low contrast. The technique can result in amazingly beautiful, ethereal and extremely expressive images.

I have been experimenting with this and gotten some lovely results, but I have also seen the effect taken leaps and bounds beyond what I am able to produce. So if you have something special, please don’t hesitate to submit it!

How to:
Use expired slide film, overexpose, process in E6.

    Really great results. I love the bike shadown shot. And those greenish tree shots are wicked.

    So, I take my negative film, for example with a speed of 100ASA and I use it setting the camera ASA at 400 to overexpose or at 25ASA ? And after I cross it with E6 right ?
