A testimony why Fuji Velvia 50 became my new favourite film.
I’ve had a box of Fuji Velvia 50 sitting in my cupboard for six months. Being an ISO 50 film, I decided that I wanted to use it on sunny days. Those sunny days finally came and I loaded it into my Lomo LCA. A fairground came to town which helped me finish the film really quickly – a rare occurrence for me!
I didn’t really know what to expect when I cross-processed this film. All I knew was that it should give awesome results and it did. The film itself came out a reddy-purple colour, which meant the photos would have a nice green colour shift to them.
The results were amazing! Blue skies came out an turquoisey-blue-green colour. Greens became even greener. Reds and yellow popped out. I think this is my new favourite film! I recommend that you try some of this film and use it on a sunny day! You’ll be amazed too.
The "Nouvelle Vague", or the French New Wave, was a revolutionary movement in French cinema, in which romance in socio-political issues of the 60's became the new mod of artistry. The photographer Raymond Cauchetier has captured all of its beginnings, as with the iconic film "Jules et Jim".
