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:
With the right composition and the perfect subject, cross processing the Agfa CT Precisa guarantees spectacular, awe-inspiring results. From the delicate and scenic to the intimate and mundane, here are some views captured on cross-processed Agfa CT Precisa slide film.
It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.

We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

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.
