Fuji Astia 100F 120mm: Lovely Pinkish Tones

I’ve only tried this film cross-processed, but let me tell you that the pinkish tones it delivers are amazing!

Since production stopped in December 2010, I really wanted to get my hands on one of these rolls for a long time. So in my 1 shot attempt, I decided to cross process it and see what I could get from those mythical pinkish, purplish tones.

At the end, I realized the Fuji Astia 100F 120mm yields really smooth colors, and beautiful tones with low contrast. What is really amazing is the really fine grain. This last part is very important if you don’t like grain in your Lomographs (not my case, but I know a lot of Lomographers who are not keen about grain).

When you try it out with sunny conditions (as it was my case), the film has a very unique charm. On the other hand, you can see the contrast when it’s taken indoors or on a cloudy day, since your shots will have a very dominant presence of purplish red color shifts.

I also realized that under lighting, the color results are much more closer to an orange tone, sort of like the colors given out by Sensia 100.

Take a look at some of the shots I took using this lovely film (which is such a shame I can’t get any more of these)
