About a billion years ago when I last blogged, I mentioned the Sunset Strip film from Lomography. Since then I’ve had my first roll developed, so thought I’d follow up and share some results. It turned out to be more different from the Revolog films than I expected, giving a more subtle colour cast.
I’m not quite as thrilled with the results from this roll, though the subjects may be a factor; I’ve got to stop bringing film cameras to late-night parties (not pictured)! The colour shift gave a sepia-esque tone to some photos, but was almost undetectable on others. These negatives came back a very deep blue, and for whatever reason the quality of the scans was particularly poor, with a distracting amount of visible grain. I’ve run these all through Noise Ninja before posting (and I’m not sorry). Some additional shots are posted over at Lomography.
In the meantime, I also finally purchased a Diana camera from the Manchester Lomography shop, right before they sadly shut down. The first roll totally exceeded my expectations – I love it! Here are a few shots taken along our European road trip in March. More at Lomography.
