Why did you choose this setting to test our new LomoChrome Color '92 ISO 400 (35 mm) Film ?

I was traveling to Mexico City when I decided to try out the film. I pretty much only shoot on 400 speed film. For me it is the most versatile. Even when it gets dark, I love shooting as wide open as I can with my aperture, so I don’t mind shooting with a slow shutter speed with no flash.

How would you describe the look of this film?

The film definitely yields on the cooler side, and a bit grainy.

Do you have a favorite photo taken with this film?

I took this photo of my friend as we were traveling by bus to the pyramids outside of Mexico City. This photograph for me represents my entire trip. I felt very lost at this time in my life. I can see my new friend, also a photographer, looking and searching as well— neither of us truly knew what we were looking for. Nobody ever really does, I guess is the truth. But this photograph reminds me, you always have to search. I had no idea why I decided to go to Mexico, but here I was on the bus to the pyramids. I was searching for something.

How do you feel about a new color negative film being on the market?


What do you think is the perfect situation for shooting this film?

Daytime. I honestly never know what I’m going to be up to, and I always like to make do with what I have. I always have 400 speed film in my camera. You can make it work with limited light too.

Which camera did you use with this film?

Leica M4-P.

What are your hopes for the future of film photography?

I really hope the supply of film goes up, and more companies come out with more options due to the increase in demand. I never want to stop making pictures with film. For me the experience of shooting film is everything. I am a romantic for film photography. I love the simplicity of it. I love not having a digital screen to pressure me to construct a perfect image. I love the limited frames. I love not seeing the images that I make until months later. For me, I don’t fully experience a moment until I see the photograph months later.
