The 3M Color Slide is a very interesting film to cross-process. It was produced in Italy and is extremely grainy. Maybe this is only because my roll expired in the mid-80s and I found it in a totally filthy flea market shop. I then put this into my LC-A and it surprised me.
I was really scared that nothing in the photos can be recognized or that the laboratory may send the film back because it somehow smelled quite disgusting. After chemicals, urine, and so on.
The results are a dream. All the pictures are gritty and ultimately all have a strong green or yellow tinge. Especially those that have been taken under the open sky and in bad weather. The colors are very soft images at the most, despite the cross-process. It’s almost like having a normal color negative film. The pictures were all very varied, a lot of changes which I had not expected.
Earlier this year, Lomography launched a new B&W Kino film in 35mm and 120 format. In partnership with the Penumbra Foundation, we held a workshop where participants were able to test out Lomography's new film on the streets of NYC and learn how to develop their own film. Check out more here.
Four years ago, French photographer Louis Dazy picked up his first camera - a Nikon F2 - which sparked a new love affair with photography. He took the Lomogon lens with him when he visited Paris. Read more about his night out with friends in this chapter of Lomogon Stories.
