Kodak Elitechrome EB: X-Pro Loves It!

2011-12-16 1

Think fast: Your house is burning down and you have time to rescue only one film and one camera. Another scenario would be, which camera and film would you like to accompany you if you got stranded on an island? Any answers to these questions?

For me, these questions don’t torture me anymore. As a Lomographer, the questions concerning the camera is quickly answered by what I do. It has to be the Lomo LC-A.

To answer the question about the film for me to rescue is by far harder to decide. But, which are the first photos that come to my mind, that first made Lomography interesting? For me, it would be are the colourful, super-saturated pictures that were made with a technique called cross-processing.

For me, cross-processing or xpro is one of the essence of Lomgraphy. One of the most perfect films for this style is the Kodak Elitechrome EB. It doesn’t cause a complete color shift, but there is that typical “larger than life” effect that I love so much about cross-processing.

It’s always a surprise how the pictures turn out, but there has never been a bad surprise. What’s left is the question about what the “EB” stands for; “Extra Bold” would be my best guess! As long as there is Kodak Elitechrome EB, it will always be one of my x-pro favorites!
