For the second roll of film that I tried out in the Leica M6 TTL, I decided to use the Lomochrome Purple 35mm.
In the past, I’ve really liked the effects of this film so was keen to see what it would look like when taken on the Leica camera.
I initially went down to the local Pavilion area in Brighton where I took these shots:
After taking a couple of the Pavilion, which in my opinion, were rather limited with the amount of the building I could fit in due to the fact I was using the 50mm Summicron Lens, I decided to take some photos of the local plants since I knew the green works quite well with this film:
I still think at this point, there was room for improvement on my focusing of this camera, however, I was quite impressed with the detail of the following photo I took:
I then walked back home along the seafront and took some beach/wave shots:
I was keen to get this film developed asap so decided to use the remainder of the film up in my garden. I was quite drawn to the table and chairs at the back of my garden so took a photo of those:
My cat Robinson loves a lot of attention from me when I’m at home so he came out into the garden and I took a couple of photos of him:
Again, I wouldn’t say the focusing on these two photos was particularly great but there are some nice purple tones in them.
Whilst there were some fun shots taken from this film, I knew that I needed to try out some ‘normal’ style films out in this Leica camera.
I questioned whether I should leave the LomoChrome Purple effect film for my Lomography camera’s rather then use them in my Leica.
Therefore at this stage, I still didn’t feel I had seen the full potential of what this Leica Camera could do.
This made me excited about what film to use next and see what the results would be like which I shall blog about next week.
Until then, stay safe everyone.
