The LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 is a color negative film that uses false colors and gives your images an infrared effect. In fact, the greens turn to purple and yellows turn to pink. See how it fares on a photowalk after the jump.

As previously mentioned, the LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 is a color negative film that gives images an infrared effect just like the discontinued Kodak Aerochrome film. Unlike the Aerochrome, the LomoChrome Purple can be used with any machine without the use of special filters.

Another special feature of this film is its ability to have an extended ISO setting. In this case, we can choose to set the ISO between 100 and 400. This way you will get different shades. For example, exposing between 100 and 200 ISO pictures obtained are laden with delicate violet tones, as opposed to exposing it to ISO 400 where the purple tones are intense and strong.

To make the most of this film, it is recommended to use a camera with the ability to set the ISO, shutter speed and aperture to adjust the intensity of light entering the camera. Below you will find a few simple rules that help you to take with this film:

  • Green to purple/blue
  • Yellow turns to pink
  • Orange becomes salmon
  • Red turns brown/bronze
  • Blues are intensified
