I took a little Minolta instamatic loaded with some Kodak ektachrome 100VS, and then got the film cross-processed at Prism Imaging in North Melbourne. What that means is, as this was slide (or transparency) film, it was processed using the normal C41 chemicals that the regular “negative” print film would be processed in. Naturally, the end result is a little bit of a gamble, and i’ve found that the type of slide film you use has a huge impact on the shots – some come out very pink tinged, others greenish or blue, and here, super contrasted, yet mostly naturalistic colours.
It’s interesting to compare the hit-or-miss nature of film, versus the digital shots I laboriously post-processed with Lightroom in my previous entry. You will see many of the shots are very similar in composition, as I was just walking around for an hour or so snapping away with both cameras I was carrying, and I sort of wanted to compare the end results.
