One of the better exposed and adequately focused 35mm frames from a 36-exposure roll of Lomography Color 100.

From my perspective, Lomography specialises in making 35mm and instant film products for people who enjoy making photographs that look like they were captured on film cameras and left to age for 30 years. The cameras are usually low-tech, and the film stocks do not appear to produce accurate colours and white balance. Most of what Lomography sells is unappealing to me. However, I am curious, so I have been experimenting with Color 100 from Lomography.

The 35mm film cartridge was developed at Black Lab Imaging in Flemington, New Jersey. The scans were made using my now "normal" scanning workflow.

I like the deep shadows in this frame. However, the entire scene has taken on a bluish car. The skin colours are rubbish; lighter skin tends towards pink, while darker skin looks like purple mud.

  1. The three Lomography Color Negative films are all really nice, especially the 400 variant. They used to be cheaper than alternatives from Kodak and Fuji but are now roughly the same price as something like Gold (and in 120 format) Ektar unfortunately.

    1. The price difference between Kodak, Fuji, and Lomography 35mm film stock is relatively minimal. I have experimented with various 35mm film stocks over the last few years. I have not found any that I think correctly captures dark skin. I guess for darker skin; it might be best for me to shoot in black and white.
