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

Gorgeous yet unpredictable

If there's one thing I could say about this film is, expect the unexpected. It responds with fascinating, gorgeous results with any subject, not just landscape or scenes with foliage. It truly has an otherworldly quality yet can be unforgiving with over/underexposure. It really rewards experimentation. I would also advise to be aware of how it responds to different scanners/scanning techniques, some people may dislike this/some may find it another fascinating creative possibility.

Lomography Purple

Great in all light conditions on location. Fun to experiment with for a unique visual style and look.

A unique effect, and a good performer in general.

Lomochrome purple provides an aesthetic similar to old school colour infrared film, without the inconvenience of having to find such rare stock and pay exorbitant prices for it. It also doesn't require a filter to provide the effects, which is an added advantage over colour infrared. The film has mild/moderate grain for a 400 speed film, somewhat mitigated by the 120 format, and this gives high acutance and apparent sharpness. The colours are unique, and if you like the effect it's pretty much the only way of obtaining such results.

One practical issue is that I find automated lab scans don't do this film justice, as the autocorrecting of colours on commercial scanners gets confused. Results from home scans are much cleaner when scanned totally flat, with no autocorrection of any sort. As such, I'd recommend scanning yourself, wherever possible!

Naturally, the results of such a film can be somewhat unpredictable, but much of the excitement is being pleasantly surprised by the way the film responds to different conditions.

Perfect for: Great All-Rounder

You can shoot this from 100-400 and the effects will be a little bit different. I tend to shoot it at 400 because it is rare to have a super sunny clear day.
