I was surprised by the results! I don't normally shoot in color and I wasn't sure about the results I could get from this film. I really love the colors! For me, it has been like taking photos in "black and white" but in color! –Daniel Freire
I love the fact that it desaturates all colors except reds and blues. – © Fernando Sciotto

Fernando, who has been already shooting with our films, in order to get the most out of the fantastic LomoChrome Metropolis' characteristics, gathered Sonia Vittlon and Marta Pilotto to shoot in a beautiful natural setting in Barcelona with the help of David Arnau Ruiz. The results are mesmerizing!

I'm very happy to see something new in the market, in these times when films get often discontinued. it is wonderful to discover new photography products and for this reason, I am very grateful to Lomography for the opportunity they give us to play and experiment with new products.

For Guillaume Salafranque, the desaturated look of the film was the perfect aesthetic for shooting a series of portraits.

It is a very interesting film: its color palette makes it perfect for portraits, the low saturation allows one to focus on the expressions without being distracted by the colors. The color shifting is soft and has a dreamy atmosphere, providing to the photos a vintage look without the surrealism of the purple or turquoise films. I loved shooting with this film!

The LomoChrome Metropolis film adds a personal touch. When asked what he thought of the new film, Juan Miguel Clavero had this to say:

Shooting with the Lomochrome Metropolis has been a great experience. I shot it in February 2020, before the apocalypse...I am very happy with the results, desaturated tones both indoors and outdoors, the unique colors it provides are spectacular and the high contrasts give a very distinctive touch.
