Tipster of the Week: X-pro Revisits the Past


All of us here knows how much we love films of different types, sizes, formats, etc. and we still use them mainly for the reason of getting those surreal and punchy saturation we want to see in our shots. This week, our Tipster not only gets the usual results you can have from shooting in film, it also took her to the past!

Lomography X-Pro 100 Brought Me Back to the Past! by jhen89

I had the Lomography X-Pro 100 loaded inside my Holga 135BC and started shooting photos around my city. I remembered that I’ve put the wrong mode for some pictures. It was a bright sunny day, which I was supposed to have the exposure setting in ‘N’ mode, but I accidentally put it into ‘B’ mode instead. I was disappointed because I thought the pictures would turn out to be unsuccessful (somehow under exposed or over exposed.)

Well, after I had those films scanned, I was surprised! The Lomography XPro 100 gave me a ride on the time machine! Those pictures turned out to be kinda old school and vintage! One of my friends claimed that I stole my grandpa’s photos. =P It was really great. It was something that I didn’t expect to get.

Just put it in B mode and hold it for 1 or 2 seconds under the bright sunny day. You’ll get a ride on the time machine and back to the past! I’ve tried this with several other films but they didn’t work in that way. so, if you still have some of these rolls, then you really should try doing this and you’ll be amazed with what the results can give you!

Thanks Lomography X-Pro for bringing me back to the past! =D
