Do you like shooting in the late afternoon or indoors? Do you like cross processing, without too much saturation? Give Fuji Provia 400X a try.
I recently was given two rolls of Fuji Provia 400X from a friend who was moving and couldn’t take all of his film with him. I’m glad he did, because I was running low on slide film and had always wanted to try some Provia. I thought the 400 speed might be a bit inconvenient, but it works great outdoors in the early morning or late afternoon, if shot properly. It’s also a “daylight” film, according to the packaging, but don’t let that fool you, because it performs very adequately with a flash, which is an important part of any Lomographers arsenal if they want to take pictures indoors.
All in all, other than a tendency to wash out during flash photography or long exposures, the 400X is a great choice for cross processing. Just err on the side of underexposure, and you’re fine! Happy shooting!
One of the many gripes of a film photographer is how difficult it is to take the perfect indoor shot -- it's either over or underexposed. You've tweaked the settings too many a time and it still doesn't work. So here's David Hancock on his own tips for shooting indoors with film.
For the beginner, encountering film photography can be intimidating, as it often requires much thought than in digital photography. But when you do get to learn the ropes, it becomes part of the habit, and there's definitely a payoff in shooting analogue.
Most venues will have a huge in caps policy for "NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY" but when the only lights you have are on stage or just a light bulb in a basement or coffee shop, how do you capture a good exposure? These are the tips and tricks for shooting great photos with little to no light and no flash.

In the digital age, image-making has become easier. But for a photographer to grow, he's obliged to try out unfamiliar and strange things and methods. That's what photographer Neto Macedo likes to do with his photography, but only in the analogue grind.
There's so much to love about instant photography. The idea of a picture developing right in the palm of your hand is really amazing and exciting, but that's just the beginning -- what you do next with your instant photos will take your excitement to the next level.
Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?
Being a great street photographer doesn't mean you should be shooting at famous capitals for their architecture or their visual appeals -- it's taking the heart of humanity in the city -- and the Big Apple just happens to win everyone at that.
