My favourite colour is Purple and I have a real love of psychedelic style photography with weird and wacky colours instead of the normal colour photos.
It was pretty obvious to me in view of this that I was going to end up having a real love of the LomoChrome Purple film available at Lomography.
Since the ISO range is between 100-400, it gives more experimentation options of the colour results. Basically, if you have an ISO of 100, the purple will be brighter and lighter on greens and if the ISO is 400, the greens in a photo will be more of an indigo colour.
This is a 35mm film which is developed under the standard C-41 process.
Lomography also do a 120mm film version which I’m keen to try out in my Diana F+ camera but as is often common with Lomography films, this is currently out of stock.
I’ve tried this film a couple of times now (in my Sprocket Rocket camera which recommends an ISO film of 400) and I’ve been extremely impressed with the results.
Here are some photos I recently took on my second roll of the LomoChrome film I put in this camera:
The above images were taken during a trip on the River Thames in London. The pictures below were taken whilst out and about in Brighton:
I really love the pictures taken on this style film. I’ve now put a roll of the LomoChrome Purple film in my Olympus Pen FT camera as I will have more control of the image quality compared to what I have on the Sprocket Rocket camera so I’m looking forward to seeing the results (which I will upload in my blog once the film is developed).
