All of us know what kind of slide films exist out there in the world. I think we all know the Lomography Xpro Slide 200 too. This is a little review on this film when it’s not crossed.
Whene I started with Lomography I knew that you can cross process your films but I didn’t really understood it. So I just bought the films about which I thought: Oh! these ones are not so expensive or the package looks nice. And so I bought maybe accidentally the Lomography X-pro Slide 200. After I’ve shoot one roll I brought it to my photolab and they developed it normally in E-6, what’s usual for slides. After I get my photos back I thought: Hmm, those colors are really good and the contrasts are also good, but why don’t the photos look like what’s on the film package?!
Time after time I had shot the two other rolls too and still didn’t knew that I should cross them. But isn’t one idea of Lomography is to do experiments and play against the rules?! Some time later I finally realized what’s meant with X-pro but then it was already too late for my Lomography X-pro Slide 200 because they were already developed. Though you should cross that film, the normal slides are also great and the colors are also deep and have a good tone. Sometimes the photos have some green tones. This film developed as normal slides is good for bright and sunny days but also for the night with your flash or some low light situations. Just try it out and don’t forget: you don’t have to cross this film, the results are still great.
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
Not all photographs are meant to be seen in vibrant, saturated colors, and neither are they always suitable for in black and white. Lomography welcomes yet another innovation from KONO!
