It’s wonderful to have Sunset Strip to give my Lomographs a touch of orange AWE-TUMN-NESS!
A few weeks ago, I ran into this Lomography product in the Lomography page. Like no other X-Pro film, the orangey-yellowish tone of the Lomographs caught my eyes, and I quickly made my way to Singapore Lomography Gallery Store to get myself a pack while stock last. Loaded with my favourite La Sardina camera, I began my journey with this lovely film.
I tried my best to test the film in all kind of conditions, from multi-exposure,
to long-exposure, love light streams!
and some landscapes. It is interesting for the sky to remain a slight blue while, the orange tone cast over the lower part of the photo.
Other than the unique ‘Autumnic’ effect, the film is actually capable of produce a massive grains in low-light or cloudy condition.
It was a cloudy evening, me and a friend of mine were visiting Marina Barage, and I took a few shots with ‘B’ mode, for roughly 1 1/2 seconds, as the clouds were really heavy. Surprisingly, the results came out outstanding from the others. As it was no yellow or orange, instead there are a tint of greyish-blue.
This film actually resembles its ancestor, Lomography Redscale, while Sunset Strip distinguish itself with its stronger contrast and dramatic color tone. It is a fantastic film and I am looking forward to expose some more rolls.
