Zeiss 120mm Makro Planar
Kodak E100 G @ 200 ISO
Cross processed at box speed
I really, really like the results.
I’m not totally sure if this was a random act of kindness from the Gods or if I can really trust this “recipe”. For a cross processed film, the colors are not much off. To my eyes the whole color combination really works.
Cross processing the Kodak E100 G did not change the colors to the level of the unreal. It did not added an overall color cast to the whole image. Well, it did, it added Cyan but in a very soft way, keeping the scene pretty real chromatically.
I was afraid that pushing the film and developing it at box speed would exaggerate the saturation but it did not, it held pretty good. I was expecting something Lomography like.
If I can trust this recipe this is a combination I will use more often for portraits.
PS: On the other hand, there isn’t a film, or process, in the world that can match the sheer beauty of my dear friend Joana. She is a breath taking woman.
