Check the Technique Quizz Nr4


Be swift to check the technique – it´s just another 24 hour quizz to stock up on piggy flock!

Be swift to check the technique – it´s just another 24 hour quizz to stock up on piggy flock!

This time we´re asking for the right technique AND the film emulsion that was used for the picture above. I had like 10 different black and white films developed and well sorted after Christmas when my cats dropped the whole box and now they´re all messed up. Only the archive- master could match lomography and emulsion accurately but he won´t be back in the office till monday….

Ilford, Rollei, Kodak, Fuji, from Iso100 – 1600, Flash in a dash flash and hold it, any flash at all? room light or natural daylight? Everything is possible!
So guess the lc-a technique AND the emulsion right this time to fetch your piggy.

Please submit the answer to

    fuji neopan 1600 i think, I use it one time it's really like that. And, light from the cake, of course, but maybe not from the room (everybody turn out the light when enter with a surprise cake, no ?)
