Lomography Metropolis - 35mm Film
Lomography Metropolis 35mm is the FIRST new colour negative film to the market for over five years!
Lomography Metropolis has been carefully crafted to produce desaturated, high-contrast photos - finetuned to mimic the aesthetic of old-time movie theatres and photobooks - and very different from the other fresh 35mm colour films available to buy today.
Grab a roll now to enjoy the fine grain, deep blacks, high contrast and abrupt tonal curve for some seriously dramatic film photographs. For more info on getting the best from the film check out our article of Lomography's Inside Tips!
Lomography has been at the forefront of the analogue revolution for decades. Starting in 1992 with some Viennese students falling in love with the aesthetic of a particular Soviet camera (the iconic LC-A) - they founded a movement and a company that would introduce a new generation to the joys of plastic cameras and experimental film. Periodically innovating new cameras for existing formats - and sometimes bringing back formats specially for their cameras! - they are vibrant and creative

I first shot Metropolis in 120 about a year ago and wasn't that happy with the results.
This time I used a roll of 35mm and was a lot more impressed. This particular roll was shot on the Film nerds photowalk in Oxford. It was a hot sunny day and the film was shot at ISO200
I particularly like the way the building have come out with an earthy tone to them. The film does seem to lend itself to these type of buildings.
Personally I think you need to find the right subjects for this film to work.
Thought I'd try Metropolis out for some landscape shots and was very happy with the result. The desaturation and contrast you get with it gives the photos an interesting quality in combination with the prevalent green tint you get throughout. All in all I'd recommend if you're looking for something different for your landscapes.
When I bought this film I had seen sample pictures but didn’t really know what to expect. But hey ho it can’t hurt to try new things. Unless that new thing is being a blindfolded sword swallower! Anyway, much like ronseal I did what it said in the tin and took it for a day out in the city. I have to say I am very pleased with the results. The film lends itself to distopian vibes very easily due to its muted green tones.
In my head I labelled the film ‘If Godzilla was in 28 days later’… and you know what if only he was.
I shot this Metropolis at ISO 200 in a Canon AE-1p in and around Glasgow in Feb 2021. Bit of a dull day so I reckon on future shoots might use ISO 100 to tone down the colour shifting and maybe lesson grain. I have another roll of this and will definitely try more street photography round Bristol on second roll. Bit of fun! Enjoy.
