I know I’ve been recommending Lomography’s LomoChrome films on some of my reviews, but had yet to post mush proof that I was using it. Yay so finally here are a few snaps that I took with the film. I have reviewed the LomoChrome Purple by Lomography here, and it produced some great interesting results. This is the LomoChrome Turquoise version of the film that was produced about a year later.
This film also gives your photos a different perspective and turns certain tones on their heads. Reds turn into purples, blues into a gold, and greens almost seem to turn into a neon green. I used a Canon AE-1 to take the following photos on the 35mm film. The first set of photos I took during a trip to Crystal Lake last summer.
I find it interesting that both the lake and skin tones came out about the same color, even though they don’t normally. Also the trees came out a bright sort of jade color which I love.
The next set of photos was taken around my apartment and in the garden which, was just starting to bloom and vegetables were just starting to pop up. I think the different tones make the pictures seem magical and make an old trailer seem like it is straight out of a story book.
The last set of photos I took inside my apartment without the aid of a flash. I used the natural sunlight that was flooding in through the windows. I have a ton of windows in my place and I love it, so I get really great light throughout.
As I said when using LomoChrome Purple, I love this film!! The unexpected results gave my photos what I felt was a magical touch. I think it was especially true in my garden photos. The roses just look unreal. Unlike the Purple film I think that this film does well in lower light and especially if there are alot of colors to work with.
Here are the specification from the Lomography site for the 35mm film
