Analogue light

Haven't had so much fun in a long time ! 

Leica Minilux loaded with Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 .. As you'll see below, results are weird, yet so analogue-beautiful in their imperfection !

The shock came in the studio, when they handed me over a developed color negative - i expected a positive ready to be projected! As i later learnt (thanks Danny!), a C41 crossed film, at least the Lomography as here, will come out as a negative which has to be reversed in the scanner. I had this initial shock and worry that they did not "press some  button" and just rushed it into the machine - and all came out reversed.. Still, the more i was looking at the negative, the more i was seeing something special in it ..

Well, back home, and after some time learning this new scanner (Canon 9000F) - i finally got to a stage where i liked what was coming out of it ..

Here are few images from the past few days, walk-around, street stuff, no processing, nothing, no curves, shadows, color - nothing - except for some sharpen - directly out of a preset i put together for this film

What say you ?

For first time in years, i do not feel like improving, processing further images, and ironically - today - because of the very same thing - the images imperfection..

I can just see this film and processing settling with me for a long time.

  1. I think you must give the digicams a rest now...and have fun with your new (old) friend. This is your look...the one you have been trying to hard to emulate in the digital space. Savor the moments here!
