The Daily Hex: Mimosa


Aside from the eye-popping and saturated blues and greens, cross processing your slide films can also give you today’s The Daily Hex!

What’s a ‘hex’ anyway?

Hex actually pertains to hex values, which are 6-digit hexidecimal numbers that are primarily used in web design. Your photographs can be viewed by hex values and we have almost 1,500 common colors that you can browse through, most of which have names that are quirky, goofy, and downright weird. But don’t be fooled, these colors are real eye candies, too!

If you are fond of processing your E6 films in C41 chemicals, then probably you’ve already come across Mimosa. This color rarely fills the entire photograph with its bright and washed-out hue and weird enough, it appears mostly on the overexposed parts as seen in these handpicked lomographs:
