US Cityslicker clownshoes: My Analogue Wishes

3

Lomography X-Pro films are great for wild looking results with and without filters. That’s why X-pro films are on my wish list.

X-pro 200

There are a variety of films you could buy at a local pharmacy, general store, or the number of online shops. What makes Lomography’s X-pro films stand out so much are the result each film can give you. It’s a psychedelic and unreal world when you step into X-pro and I love to push the results to their wildest: Blown out, Over saturated, and color shifts.

Lomography X-Pro 100iso
Blown out! Not that it’s a bad thing. I’ve always wanted to make a point of shooting X-pro 100 at a faster speed because I often get over exposed photos. It also has it’s upside; it’s great with filters. For some of the best results; I’ve found working with a polarizer and a Cokin Varicolor. The filters really help push X-pro 100 back a bit and let those over saturated colors come out.

Lomography X T64
A really wild color shifting film. The super low ISO makes this film great for close up flash work. Also I’ve found it to be very flexible in other conditions: low light, longer exposures, tungsten lights. The Saturation is always high and almost never blown out. You can really mix it up with any filter or combination of filters. I love adding either a light blue filter when I’m outside; or a star filter at night or with a flash.

Lomography X-pro 200
This could be my favorite X-pro film. Yes, the iso is higher; but it has a great flexibility when it comes to light. I try to shoot it during the day if I can with more than one filter stacked on it; you will get a huge color shift. X-pro 200 has a great ability to separate color; I’ll pair it up with graduated filters. Sometimes just one; but I also like putting two different colors together. I’ve found it is a great film for fill flash without getting blown out.

Lomography’s X-pro films are at the top of my wish list. If you haven’t tried X-pro films yet; try them all. If you have tried X-Pro film; then take them as far as you can. Lomography provides some great films and all of them have some great results; take a swing with some.

    @renenob not sure I tried to pick some up recently. Maybe it was just the end of the batch.

    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.
