on a course in reverse
‘cross processing’ is a special type of developing a special type of film – this is the last part of an old series . . .
the technique has been around for a long time, i’ve covered it multiple times since 2013 and with the huge renaissance wave in analog photography it joined the comeback of 35mm and other film material.
i have enjoyed using Fujichrome, Kodachrome etc. for several years and the – sometimes – unpredictable output is very tempting and fun, but recently i noticed how along the wake of film photography gaining momentum some people capitalize by making film that imitates the sparkly effects to shine up a rather mediocre piece of work. a little bit like putting the wrong kind of nail polish on that makes you look like a clown when you just want to be the princess.
so long!View other posts by staff stuff
