cross processing - advice sought

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello - I haven't posted for a while, as most of my computer kit is packed up in storage for the moment, but I'm after some advice on film choice for cross-processing.

 

It's an effect I've only seen done a couple of times, and I'd like to experiment with it, but I remember my nightschool tutor telling me that it worked best with Kodak slide film. I think I remember him also saying that this was because the Kodak films kept skin tone (vaguely?) recognisable in cross processing, whereas Fuji films would turn skin tones very yellow.

 

Does this match anyone's experience? Can anyone recommend a particular film or technique? I'm hoping to shoot a fashion event for a local designer shop - most of it I'll do "straight" but I quite fancy putting a roll through C41 just to see what it looks like. The designers are pretty unconventional, and if I get the results I think I can get, they're going to like it!

 

cheers

Hallo Ade,

 

I can't say anything about the Fujis, however you are right skin tones in cross-processed Kodaks are great. I always use the EPT160T and expose it at 80 ASA.

Just my recommendation.

 

Regards,

Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

 

Thanks for the tip - I have a couple of rolls on order from the seven day shop. Looking forward to seeing what I can do with it!

Hi Ade,

 

hope you will like the results. By the way, is there anybody who can give me in advice in scanning cross-processed films? How can I easily and repeatable remove the orange color fault? Of course I can use any given CN-profile in Silverfast, however I would prefer to have full control of the process and I am not totally convinced of the results.

 

Thanks,

S.
