Another Side of X-Pro

How come usually X-Pro means crossing slide film instead of crossing color negative film? Good question considering the outcome I got of a regular color negative film, I had developed as slide film – they're amazing. I love this soft vintage colors!

Few years ago I already had a color negative film developed as slide film, but the slides came out too dark and details were hardly visible. Now, some years later I finally tested it again. I remembered the dark slides I got last time – that’s why I exposed a regular 400 ISO color negative film, I bought in the drugstore dm, as if it was a 50 ISO film.

When I received the developed film from the lab, I was totally excited. The thing is, you can already see the colors of the final image, taking a look at the slides. A few pictures were overexposed, but I instantly fell in love with others. Just take a look:

Next time I won’t overexpose that much. I’m already totally excited about the outcome. I’d love to see some link to images, that were also crossed.

You’ll find more photos of my film here.

    Awesome trial! I'm also wondering why not so many people try this. Maybe because it's more difficult finding a lab that offers E-6? I want to try too :)
