Lomography CN 400 ASA 35mm: A Versatile Companion

2012-08-14 1

When I bought my first lomography camera (what is now years ago), I loaded it with the film, which seemed to me to be the best solution for a “lomography beginner”. It was the Lomography CN 400 iso film, the film which proved itself to be a versatile companion for every situation.

Lomography CN 400 ISO 35mm is a film which never gets you down. It is prepared for every situation and environment even if you do not know where exactly your legs are leading you on your big or small photo trips.

This film proved itself to be a versatile companion from the first time I used it. It is great for indoor fun with and even without flash, for travelling, for commuting by bus, tube or train, for a day spent on a beach or for a cloudy day in town.

It produces sharp photos no matter what kind of camera you use and gets you nice results in most light conditions, but as well with bulb setting. Moreover, (what is quite important for me) it is equally good for doubles. So it means that you may use it every day, every time, every season and in every situation.

When I am not one hundred percent sure about the light conditions or the places I am going to visit, I always choose and take out “for a walk” this little humble but very intelligent film. Loading this film into your camera is a choice you never regret.

The Lomography Color Negative 35mm 400 film delivers vibrant colours and superb saturation and contrast. You don’t have to worry while you’re shooting, even under low lighting conditions. See our selection of Lomography films here.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

It aims to provide guidance and information to analogue photography enthusiasts through its website, which has become a platform for showcasing the creativity and techniques of its followers. Since live has also ventured into developing products to bolster the practice of analogue photography and its Bento Film Case has proven to be very useful.
