Luckily, I have two rolls of Lomography X Tungsten 64 left because the first one can be considered an epic fail. Who’s fault is it? Mine. Don’t want to end up with pink cheeks rather than pink photos? Read on and find out how.
In my own defense, I was expecting it to come out a little messed up. I shot my first roll of Lomography X Tungsten 64 as a test roll. I shot it outside in strong sunlight, in dim daylight, indoors with no light, with flash, with no flash, at night, on B mode, etc. Basically, I tried everything I could think of after I stuck into the Pentax Espio (which is quite a nifty camera by the way).
The results? Not so hot. I’d say mostly dark. To be expected from such a low ISO film I assume. I’m no expert, but I guess I brought it on myself. What I was hoping for was the bright, screaming pink but sadly, I didn’t get much of that. I got some reds and lots of contrast but not much else, as you can see for yourself in the photos below:
We’ve all seen what sort of results the Tungsten X is capable of producing so I’m hoping I’ll make the most of the two rolls I have left. Will shoot them inside with artificial light although that is really not my forte. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some splendiferous results next time but in the meantime, let me share with you a few more test roll shots:
