More yellow than green

2011-05-08 5

It was my first foray in using a Lomography slide. I’ve tried out their negatives and redscale film and was happy with the results. So the end for this was predictable—very happy as well.

Some crossprocessed slides tend to lose contrast and details and could also end up grainy. The Lomography (LSI) Slide/x-pro doesn’t fall into that category. My experiences with other slides is it’s tendency to over emphasize colors like red, green, blue, and yellow. This LSI slide is partial to yellow but doesn’t overwhelm the image. The flesh tones are actually good, and even natural.

As expected from a slide with an ASA200 rating, night shots are clear and even double exposed shots do not lose detail. Whereas you’d normally think twice about taking night shots with your expired slides without a flash, well, not in this case. This LSI slide will capture your details without a flash even if double exposed.

I’ve been pointing out no data lost and wish to emphasize this. I didn’t encounter blown-out hight lights whether it is shot indoors or outdoors. In some particular shots, the blue sky color was decently blue with a haze of green on the clouds—again, not bad for a crossprocessed image.

Using fresh slides is refreshing (as opposed to expired ones). It’s worth saving up your piggy points to get them.
