  3. Looks just like you….

    When you’re shooting with the intent to cross process, do you have a solid idea of how the colors will turn out for a given film? Or is it sort of a pleasant surprise every time?

    • Great question. Although each film reacts uniquely, consistency depends on the amount of light in the scene. Most people shoot for cross-processing when it’s very sunny out. This almost ensures that the effects of a given film will be at their peak – crazy colors, extreme contrast – consistently. Overcast weather, on the other hand, can muddy and dampen the effects. Still, the most popular films to cross-process are those that are more realistic – Velvia 50, Agfa RSX, and so on. These films still end up very saturated and contrasty, but they don’t typically exhibit color shifts like some films – Velvia 100F (red/purple), Astia 100F (pink/red), Provia 100F (green).

  5. Insanely gorgeous! I love how intense the orange color is. And, I see you there, too. 😉 I have never cross processed film before…writing it down on my list of “must do’s” in the future. 😀

    • Be careful with cross-processing. You might become addicted. 😀

    Great for cross-processing. I love this photo–reminds me of my hometown. Knapheide has been in Quincy since the 1800s and I knew some of the family. They’ve had a lot of ups and downs, but are still going strong. An interesting history. http://www.knapheide.com/aboutus/default.asp?selection=aboutus
