“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”

Ansel Adams

LomoChrome Turquoise & the Bayeux Cathedral

When I was in France this summer, I took along a roll of Lomography’s LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400 35mm film. LomoChrome Turquoise is modelled after Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple film which in turn is modelled after Kodak Aerochrome (this post by The Phoblographer explains it all). LomoChrome Turquoise produces some wild color shifts, but it isn’t cross-processed nor is it an infrared film like Kodak Aerochrome. The effects are created through dyes in the emulsion. All in all, I love the way blue sky is rendered orange, but I hate the turquoise skin tones. You can find a review with many sample shots at Emulsive.

These shots of the 800+ year old cathedral in Bayeux, France were taken with a Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim.
