Dear Fellow Lomographers,

My name is noe_arteaga and I am addicted to cross-processing.
YES, I admit it! The color shifts that color our photographs so boldly make my heart skip a beat! The intense saturation that brightens up our world makes me swoon! And contrast? There is never enough!

Good news of us, Lomographers, for I have found a true gritty slide film to fulfill my Rock N’ Roll lifestyle! This film is edgy! It captures warm vibrations and spits them out in glorious colors! Now, you might be thinking, what does this slide film have over any other? Well, if you like your shots to look cool, crazy, colorful, and full of contrast, you can use most any slide film, but I can guarantee that no other film plays this nicely at night. It is none other that Lomography’s Sunset Strip film!

Lomography Sunset Strip is ROCKIN’

Lomography Sunset Strip lives up to its namesake. The Sunset Strip in beautiful Los Angeles is known for its vibrant, rock n’ roll nightlife. How appropriate, because Lomography Sunset Strip film truly shines when used at night! Whether you choose to use a flash or whatever available ambien light, this film captures it all and harmonizes the most spectacular photos you’ve seen!

Flash it!!


Soak up the ambien light!

Flash or not, Sunset Strip really has a way of capturing the warm tones of the moment. The saturation isn’t overbearing, and there’s just enough contrast to let your audience know you live on the wild side of the slide!

Let me just give you this warning!!! Sunset Strip is, after all, a slide film. That means, that like most slide films, it requires as best possible exposure as possible to reach its potential! And, like all other slide films, over exposure can happen if you’re just even 1 inch too close!

The lovely grazie here models for us a good exposure and one that is just a tad bit overexposed.

Next time I see you guys on Sunset Blvd., my friends, I hope to find you armed with your analogue cameras, loaded with some Lomography Sunset Strip!!! Don’t get in too deep, though! I almost had to check in to BHS Hollywood Recovery Center (on Sunset Blvd., ironically) for Xpro Addiction!!!

See you on the wild side of the slide, LomoAmigos!!

    Good article and photos. I have some slide film. It's in the fridge, but if cross processed, it turns a kind of dark pink even if overexposed 2 stops, It's 120 200 ISO, the box says Fortunate Fast Superslides with no expiration date, and made in India. I bought it in Chinatown about 3 years ago. I might try again.
