First Look: Lomochrome Purple

I am not at all impressed with this film. It's very grainy and it does not have a lot of contrast. Worse, my cousin looks like a purple smurfette in it. // I realized when people started asking that I should probably post the ISO I used... I used 100 ISO but these are shot at the beach so they're probably a tad overexposed like all beach shots are. xo

    try to expose it at 200 ISO, maybe you will have less grain

    @kibs i will happily admit that it was an awesome idea on my part! i thought the red dress would pop out with this film and i'm not always right but this time, i was spot on! i'm happy i did it!

    i think this film is not primary portrait film, but cool looking film for coll looking photos. ;)
    and great album, by the way. :)

    Lovely job Michelle. And I think your exposure is spot on. You highlights are not totally blown but more importantly your shadows are underexposed mud. Great job girl!!

    Well, good picture, but I agree about the film problems.. like practically every lomo color film the quality of the emulsion is not that good :P
