Cross-Processing and Dishwashing with Afga Precisa

2011-07-20 1

AgfaPhoto CT Precisa 35mm is the most amazing film to cross process with. It gives stunning colors, and works just as well after being in the dishwasher!

It was about a month ago that I ordered my first 3 rolls of Agfa Precisa, and as soon as they came, I loaded one up in my LC-A+ *.

Because it was my first roll I thought I would test out how it reacted in different conditions, I shot in the brightest of sunlight, and also in the afternoon shade. These are some photos from taken in the bright sun. :)

Precisa, when cross-processed, is definitely a film that loves the sun.

It does not react so well in the shade…

Slightly less success without the sun.

If you want to shoot in the shade or any time without good lighting and without a flash, I would recommend shooting at a lower ASA to let more light in. Unfortunately for you LC-A+ users, it is 100 ISO film and you can’t really go any lower, but with a little crafty covering of some of the light meter, you can force the camera to keep the shutter open slightly longer.

I also put a roll of this film through the dishwasher after seeing Dr. Lab Experiment One: Do the Dishwasher.
It works fantastically. You can even experiment with shooting a roll, sticking it in the dishwasher, and then shooting it again after you have dried it. You get two layers of different colors. :)

Precisa is definitely a film worth having a go with, it cross processes beautifully, and even works well in the dishwasher.

So, what are you waiting for? Go shoot a roll! :)
