A very simple film to fall in love with! A perfect pairing with the sun and light. You won’t be disappointed with this baby :-)

When i first started out in analogue photography, i didn’t dare to go right out in the sun to take photos in fear of attaining overexposed shots. Instead, i chose the ‘safer’ way, to start with Lomography CN 400 films, as they were more versatile and complementary to the brightness of the day, from day to evening. I felt very restrained just getting advice on how to use Lomography CN 100 films, as i was told that you’d have to use them with tons of light to get best results! However, one instance when i visited the famous Gardens By The Bay in Singapore with my La Sardina completely changed my mind.

These photos were taken in an enclosed area where there were sun rays shining right through the glass panels at the celing. I speculated for a long time before starting to use this film, whether it would turn out nicely or not. Thankfully, results obtained were spectacular and i had no regrets.

Here are some shots taken in the sun, without flash!

On another occasion, when i visited Taiwan in Spring, i took advantage of the bright sun and brought a fresh roll of Lomography CN 100 film along with me!

It was exciting to use the film this time round, as i now had high expectations of it. I completed this roll of film pretty quickly, in half a day and made full use of all the light i had.

Here are some shots of Jin Gua Shi, where i visited in Taiwan. All shot without flash.

In conclusion, this film has not disappointed and has brought my views on this film to a whole new level. I’ll definitely continue to explore this film and test its limits ;)

    I have some rolls of CN 100 and also the X-pro Color Slide 200 ISO which I intend to use during a beach holiday soon but having used CN 100 previously on Fisheye 2 I didn't really like the dull colors. I just bought Sardina recently and thinking which film would work best. I love the colors that X-pro Chrome 100 gave but unable to get the films.
