Here's a neat tip on how to make your Black & White images look like sexy colourful X-pro shots!

If you have a lot of B&W negatives (picture 2) or colour slide film is too expensive for your experiments and you want to make them look like crazy colorful x-pro film (picture 1), all you need is – a clear piece of 135/120 slide film, for example FUJI RTP (T64). Usually, if you ask your lab doesn’t cut your film, it’s in the beginning or in the end of film. You’ll need a piece 60X120mm size maximum. If it was one of your failed experiments, heavily underexposed or with some lightleaks (picture 3) – even better.

So, here is the tip:

  • Take your neg and piece of slide film (picture 4)
  • Put ’em together as sandwich (picture 5)
  • Scan it as colour negative (picture 6)
  • Enjoy results (pictures 7,8)

Try different film types – Kodak 120 negatives have strong orange colour, so vivid greens guaranteed! If you don’t have pieces of colour film, you can use Diana’s colour gel filters (picture 9).

Enjoy colours!

    This is a cool tip I've actually been meaning to try since I have some chunks of 120 film laying around that are color blanks. All you need is 6cm by 6cm extra to do magic.
