EBS: Shooting Negative with X-Pro Style

2013-04-18 6

I could not wait to try out EBS after coming across a Japanese Lomographer’s tipster. Never had I expected the results from a negative film could be so fabulous! I have deeply fallen in love with EBS shooting style!

Firstly, I loaded my Sprocket Rocket with a roll of AGFA ISO 400 negative film. The photos for the first side exposure were taken at a beautiful sunny day.

After shooting the emulsion side of the film, at night, I retrieved the film and connected it with a prepared empty film canister by pasting the film with the remaining film in canister. The prepared empty film canister still had a 4cm long film strip.

Caution! While connecting the film strips, make sure the film strips do not overlap each other, this is to prevent choking the film canister. The film strips should be connected at the edges of the point of connection.

To avoid the exposure disaster, I sneaked into my thick blanket to transfer the one-sided exposed film into the empty film canister. After transfer was done, I re-loaded it into LC-WIDE to complete the shooting of the redscaled side. The ISO 400 film would become ISO 100 rated Redscale film after being inverted. However, the yield effects turn out to be silghtly over-exposed, so I advise readers to set the ISO as 200.

The following are my EBS photos, and I love them very much!! The negative film has threw away its unsaturated colors.The bluish and orangy combination has totally blown me away!!!

After having success in this EBS, I will definitely try out the symmetrical EBS, and I am confident it would be as fantastic as this one!!!
