Fomapan is a trippy film that will keep you guessing from one roll to the next!
I first used Fomapan because my friend lent me a roll of it saying that I’d like it. Truer words had never been spoken.
Fomapan 100 is known for being a very sharp film which can be good with a Diana or Holga when you need a break from creamy colours. It came out out as sharp as a razor when put in a Rolleiflex or Yashica TLR. Fomapan is a very lenient film too. It has a wide exposure latitude so you can get nice results when over exposing it by 1 stop and under exposing it by 2 stops all without changing its developing times. All of this combined when combined with a Holga results in perfectly printable shot almost every time. A match made in heaven.
But wait! There’s more! When you develop Fomapan in a developer like T-max (T-max is the only developer I use but I’m sure it works on others) your developer will turn a Kool-Aid blue and so will your negatives. All this from a black and white film and black and white developer? It is a mystery! Nevertheless it is a great effect. When you bring it to your lab or if you’re developing and scanning at home, make sure they’re scanned as colour negatives rather than black and white and let the colours fly. I’ve noticed that dark parts in the photo will turn a greenish tint and if something is over exposed in the picture it sometimes turns a slight red-ish tint to it. But these effects differ from camera to camera. Sometimes in my Holga the photos turn out in a blue when scanned in colour and reversed.
So give Fomapan a try and share your colour shifting experiences!

Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires a certain amount of discipline. For it to be coherent, one must keep his focus throughout the entire process - from shooting the scenes to editing the clips. With that, we are truly grateful for the effort that these lomographers put into making these LomoKino movies.
Rooms contain what the owner values or has come to hate (tucked in boxes, of course). Colors reveal mood swings. Gardens follow the season’s orders. A house keeps up with ever-changing whims and styles—one of the things that make it a home. Here’s something to inspire your next spruce-up.
