I had high hopes for this film. I shot these photos in and around Bow Valley Ranch (in Fish Creek Park) a few years back when I was searching for the perfect slide film to cross-process. Unfortunately, Rollei Digibase CR 200 Pro didn’t live up to my expectations. Looking at these photos now, I’m not sure what I was expecting. I just know that I’m not a fan of oversaturated greens and yellows. Maybe I shouldn’t have photographed the trees, bushes and grass, lol.
Foodie, oenophile, traveler, hockey player, teacher, husband & father. I am many things, but at my core, I am a writer and photographer. Give me a notebook, a camera and a pocketful of film and I’m happy. Going Lomo is where I share my love for film photography, because a photograph not shared, only speaks silence.
What a gorgeous location! I see why you feel that way about all the green though. I wonder if that film would still skew green if you took shots in a city or on the water?
Thanks Karen! That’s a great question. It’s certainly something I will have to experiment with the next time I shoot and cross-process slide film.
