Tonight I’m taking photos at Annalie’s latest gig at The Gamophone on Commercial Road by Spitlefields market. Unfortunately I thought it was yesterday so turned up there by accident! If you want to come here are the details. It’s a … Continue reading
I pointed this direct at the sun just to see what would come out. The red flowers on the bush are really brought out by the cross processing red hue on the Fuji Velvia.
This is so cross processed it looks like a painting. It’s my favourite from the Annalie shoot.
This is Shoreditch park just after the atomic bomb fell. The red hue is from the overexposed cross processed Fuji Velvia slide film. I pushed the negative in my scanner, to get detail in the ground and the tree, I’ve lost it in the sky, but it adds to the apocalypse feeling. Continue reading
I took this while waiting on a bus stop. I has a few shots left on my Holga from the night before and I was looking for an excuse to finish the film. It was Fuji Velvia.

Annalie was after some more photos and I thought it’d be fun to take some dream like photos. Annalie is quite other worldly and I wanted the photos to show that.
I used cross processing (developing slide film as colour film) to give really odd colours, and reduce the clarity of image. I shot it on Fuji Velvia, which I didn’t realise brings out the red tones when it’s incorrectly exposed, so shooting it on my Holga doesn’t create very flattering skin tones.
Something about that tranquility of this photo though makes it appealing. Like we’re joining in on what she’s dreaming.
If you want to try cross processing, West End Cameras in Tottenham Court road are doing a 12.99 CD and 6X6 print special on medium format film. Which is cheaper then most places traditional processing.
I was inspired to do cross processing by this post I read on Feeling Negative the film website.
