Film Review of the Week

2012-04-14 5

If there’s one thing we lomographers are known for, it’s our inclination to try all things experimental. Therefore, we believe it’s not surprising that this week’s film review on spotlight is a big, experimental one, a good read especially for beginners!

We all reach a point in our lomographic career where all we want to do is to tinker with whatever films we have. We find out that all a plain color negative film needs is a little bit of experimentation. This is exactly what our featured lomographer shoujoai did with her Ferrania Solaris 200 films.

As the title suggests, our lomographer’s review is a big, all-encompassing one. Nearly everything you’ve ever thought of trying out with your film is here. Redscaling it, pushing it, pulling it, cross-processing it, you name it, she’s done it with her Ferrania Solaris 200 rolls. For comparison, she also provided some photos showing how the film looks like when shot as usual on a sunny day:

The fun starts when she starts experimenting, showing various shades, hues, and effects that can be achieved using this color negative film:

If you’d like to see more of her photos and insights on the Ferrania Solaris 200, go ahead and check out the full review over here!

Congratulations, shoujoai, for penning the latest Film Review of the Week! We hope you can share with us more of your film experiments and reviews soon!

The next snapshooter who will bag the next Film Review of the Week distinction could be you! Submit your film review and wow us with your beautiful photos and helpful insights. In case yours isn’t on the list, feel free to let me know!

    @plasticpopsicle Hey! Isn't there going to be an Accessory Review of The Week? There were at least two published accessory reviews last week!

    Hello @carlota_nonnumquam, sorry about that, the accessory reviews published last week were all about Diana accessories that have been featured before. As much as possible, we don't want to re-feature reviews of accessories that have been featured before. I hope that makes sense!

    @plasticpopsicle Yep, it makes total sense! :) I just thought they had been forgotten, but you're right, it wouldn't make any sense to re-feature the same accessories again!
