Agfa CT Precisa - One of My Favorite Film to Cross Process

2014-01-21 4

It’s been quite some time since I used the Agfa CT Precisa to cross process and the results convince me time and time again.

I confess that I never develop the Agfa CT Precisa in normal processing. I find the colors when I cross process it much nicer. I really get different colors with this film but some time ago there was a Kodak Elitechrome emulsion and now a Fuji. Sometimes the different colors come from my color foils. Here’s a look at some of my favorite shots with this film:

The Agfa CT Precisa is suitable for every camera. From the simplest ones without any exposure settings up to a SLR. I highly suggest that you try this film on a Konstruktor.

With the newer emulsion (Fuji) i like the contrast between green and red. So I tend to pick every red item as a subject when I have this film loaded.

I also like the results when I use it with artificial light:

Here are some photos with a touch of blue and the old Agfa CT Precisa using a Kodak emulsion:

I also wrote some tipsters for this great film. Have a look:

You should definitely try the Agfa CT Precise if you haven’t shot with it yet!

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
