The Varying Moods of Lomochrome Metropolis

These days, it's quite the norm to use editing software or app filters to modify photos, to alter the colors or make it look like it was shot on film. The LomoChrome Metropolis film eliminates the need for that — it's film, after all — and it's specially developed to deliver a unique, colorshifting look that is proudly #nofilter. The proof is in the pictures, see for yourself.


Generally, the LomoChrome Metropolis desaturates the colors of your subject. For a nice contrast, a pop of red color will awaken an otherwise sleepy shot. Blues, yellows, and greens will also be prominent, giving your photos a vintage look.

If you love muted tones, this film won't disappoint — overcast days seem a bit more chilly, while high and bright sunshine will potentially wash out the colors even more.

Take advantage of the pale palette. Try a few shots indoors with a sliver of light, or when it's cloudy outside. Turn on the grains, bring in the shadows, play with highlights and lowlights.

Used in golden hour at ISO 400 setting, the film will render your photos in glowing tones and deeper colors. Overall, the colors are still desaturated, but sunny yellows, gleaming golds, and fresh blues and greens will be more pronounced.

When set in ISO 100 or 200, the LomoChrome Metropolis shot in golden hour may produce dream-like portraits and calm still-life snapshots — doused in pastel tones contrasting with shadowy blacks and greys.

This is just a quick rundown of what the LomoChrome Metropolis can do for your photos. By all means, get yourself some rolls, experiment, and have fun with it!
