I’ve shared photos from this roll of Agfa CT Precisa 200 before (see When Expired Film Goes Bad), but at that time I did not know the cause of the spots. I thought it may have had something to do with the age of the film or poor storage conditions. I was partially right. I […]
With the recently announced return of LomoChrome Turquoise, I thought I might post a few photos and share my thoughts on this color-shifting emulsion. Of all Lomography films, this one has the wildest color palette. This is not a film for the faint of heart. If you prefer natural or even saturated colors, you will […]
In 2019, when Sarah and I were in China, we had the opportunity to visit a tea plantation in Emeishan. Patrick, our guide, drove us to the home of an old high school friend who was the owner of a tea plantation. Upon arriving, we were kitted out with traditional Chinese conical hats, tea baskets […]
Over the years, I’ve shot a lot of photos at Union Cemetery. Most of the old headstones were made from sandstone and they have not stood the test of time. Sandstone is a very soft sedimentary stone and it is a poor match for Calgary’s climate. These photos were taken with LomoChrome Purple film and […]
I shoot a lot of expired film. Occasionally, I come across old film that has somehow managed to defy aging. This is usually because it was properly stored over its lifetime. Ferrania Solaris FG 100 and Perutz Primera 100 are two films I own that still look good a decade after the expiry date. And […]
Expired film can be so unpredictable. Sometimes you can shoot with 10 year old film and the results are amazing and other times, not so much. As a general rule of thumb, you should shoot expired film one stop slower than box speed for every decade past the expiry date and you should also bracket […]
I shot these at Heritage Park with Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 (original emulsion).
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 […]
