Dreamy, Never-ending Summer.


Here is a look at the outcome of Fuji Velvia 120 iso 100, if it is cross-processed. At first I did not have much faith in Velvia but, these pictures, taken at various times and places with a Holga came out much better than I could have hoped for! I will definitely experiment with it some more in the future!

This picture was taken with my Holga camera, with flash. I love the tones of our skin, which is definitely a pro to this film. It gives people a sort of old school dreamy feeling.

As for this picture, it was taken out of an airplane window overlooking the Alps in Italy. It really captured the fluffiness of the clouds, and the depth of the mountains.

For this one, it was taken on a sunny day on the beach after a solid game of rung-ho! No flash was used, and the detail and colours are still visible!

Overall, I think this would suit someone who yearns for a dreamy-never-ending-summer feel. I found that the less exposed the image is the more red it becomes, while if it is more exposed it becomes more orange-yellow. So far I cannot find a single con to this film!

Happy shooting!
