Is there anything more beautiful or romantic than a sunset in Paris? Perhaps a cross-processed sunset in Paris…
Oh Paris, you are a beautiful city!
I love Paris and these photos just make me miss it even more. I actually forgot that I used a slide film to capture these photos and when I got the results I was absolutely thrilled.
I knew that cross-processing films (developing slide film with c-41 chemicals and vice versa) could create a massive color shift in the results, but the only film I’d used before – X-Pro Chrome- had a very subtle shift and in comparison, these results from the Lomo XPro are not subtle at all.
I’m still amazed by how different that the colors are to how they looked and also that I could never have predicted that this is how they would have turned out.
However, I’m so glad that I’ve started to experiment with different films in my cameras, especially at different times of the day, it adds a new level and challenge to my photography and I’m really enjoying the results.
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
What makes an engaging image? What makes a photograph seem more like a memory than just an image? How is it able to make you feel as if you were right there, in that moment, experiencing the scene first hand?
A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.
Sip from a cup at a nearby cafe, try the sweet pastries and walk through the romantic streets of Paris with Morgane's photographs of her beautiful city. And as you enjoy the view, hear what this local has to say about her accomplice in taking such lovely photos.
