Here’s a neat tip on how to make your Black & White images look like sexy colourful X-pro shots!
If you have a lot of B&W negatives (picture 2) or colour slide film is too expensive for your experiments and you want to make them look like crazy colorful x-pro film (picture 1), all you need is – a clear piece of 135/120 slide film, for example FUJI RTP (T64). Usually, if you ask your lab doesn’t cut your film, it’s in the beginning or in the end of film. You’ll need a piece 60X120mm size maximum. If it was one of your failed experiments, heavily underexposed or with some lightleaks (picture 3) – even better.
So, here is the tip:
- Take your neg and piece of slide film (picture 4)
- Put ’em together as sandwich (picture 5)
- Scan it as colour negative (picture 6)
- Enjoy results (pictures 7,8)
Try different film types – Kodak 120 negatives have strong orange colour, so vivid greens guaranteed! If you don’t have pieces of colour film, you can use Diana’s colour gel filters (picture 9).
