    Fuji Astia (120, 100 iso)

    For the "natural ones" out there, Fuji Astia delivers muted, smooth colors with low contrast, beautiful skin tones, and razor-point resolution. Quite a nice choice for when you're looking to whisper with your images - rather than scream your freaking head off with saturation. Turns the usual fuji blue-green-red cream when you cross-process!

    Fuji Superia (120, 100 iso)

    Kodak Portra (35mm, 400 iso)

    A professional and usually very expensive film. When used on sunny days, the colors are mind-glowingly vivid - and almost look cross-processed. Its results are totally unique and unlike any other film.

    Kodak Elitechrome EB (35mm, 100 iso) staff-review

    A gorgeous slide film that gives straight-up vivid results when normally processed. If you cross-process it, you'll end up with intense saturation and contrast, but only a very subtle color shift. It's like taking everyday life and cranking it up to "11."

    Fuji Provia (120, 100 iso)

    Somewhere between the buckwild colors of Velvia and the silky understatement of Astia is Fuji Provia. You'll get magical color pops without making all of your pale skintones look insane. Everybody wins! Turns the usual fuji blue-green-red cream when you cross-process it.

    LomoLocation Gallery: Wear Your Sunscreen

    "__Last Saturday (May 3), we spent the cloudy afternoon at Anawangin Cove, 35 minutes away south by outrigger boat from Pundaquit Beach in Zambales, Philippines. The sea was choppy and nimbus clouds loomed above us. But neither rain nor seawater can dampen our spirits. We marveled at the beautiful Zambales coastline with its massive cliffs, jagged boulders and rolling mountains carpeted with summer-brown grass. This secluded stretch of salt-and-pepper sand sandwiched by a saltwater bay and a freshwater lake river bordered by a thick pine forest makes one unique landscape. Wading across the brackish backwaters where mudskippers hopped across gnarly tree stumps and green muck was a peaceful endeavor. While the steady climb up the western edge of the cove provided a stunning panoramic view of the place__."

    LC-A+ Self Portrait Kits

    You work hard. You tirelessly search for the most impossible subjects in the most impossible of situations – just to aim your beady lens at them and press that shutter button without a second thought. Don’t you deserve a little time in the spotlight too? A little “living in the limelight,” as it were? Luckily, the LC-A+ camera in your hand is nothing short of an all-in-one Self Portrait magic box. Sure, it’s wonderful to just hold the camera at arms’ length and shoot your smiling face. But here’s a little something to really make it shine.
