LomoChrome Purple Film - 35mm
A refreshed formula for 2019 and one of the craziest 35mm emulsions on the market today! Beautiful, bizarre, and very definitely purple - Lomography have created a film that will transport viewers of your photography into an alternative universe with surprising shades, colour shifts, and purple magic.
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 struggled to get some of the ethereal results others get - possibly I just wasn't exposing properly - but I did get some really interesting photos of the Space Needle whilst on holiday that have that retro futurist vibe.
The tones were great and the outcome was a nice surprise. In a professional setting, using this film would be quite difficult, thus four stars.
However, using this film allowed me to focus on the highlights and the colours that would be pouring in. I set out to take some portraits and street photography. I found that in sunny natural light it really worked on bringing out darker tones in hair and shadows. However for the street setting I found the results to look a little amateur. In larger settings the detail was present but the variation in colour reminded me that it’s an experimentally film and should be used with this in mind.
Overall, great idea and as usual good quality from lomo.
A bit disappointing that by the time I could try the film, it went out of stock. The film itself is amazing, very bright colors, perfect for landscapes. I also appreciate the results for portraits, it alternates the colors but not in an eccessive way. Looking forward to buying more!
Surprisingly fine grain and sharp images for a gimmicky film. The weird colours are a great way to get a fresh take on subjects you wouldn't bother with or feel they're done to death. I had fun with my first roll just wandering around a local park with a macro.
Scanning is easy as you can let auto-exposure (epson scan) do all/most of the work because the colours are meant to be surreal anyway.
Could be a one-off but my first roll was a couple frames shy, in a camera that usually gets an extra 3-4 frames per roll. That's pretty stingy for a film priced the same as Cinestill.
I really love this film. I’m all about colour in film, and usually soup my films or use filters to achieve funky colours. I wanted some film that would give me the colour I wanted without all the effort - and this certainly does. You get rich purples hues that you just can’t achieve in any other way. The exciting feelings of wonder, magic and surprise when you see the results are hard to top.
The only downsides are that I found it hard to expose correctly with such varied results and so I probably didn’t get many usable shots. The results are so vastly different even if the subject and exposure are exactly the same as the frame before. Secondly, it’s a bit of a pain to digitally scan in - I just can’t seem to get the colours right myself. Oh, and if you’re planning on colour printing this in the darkroom...good luck! It’s a challenge but it looks great in the end.
