One day, back in time…


“…and now for something, completely different!!”

This is bulk “government surplus” Eastman Ektachrome.  It expired in 2004, but was acquired and repackaged by TheFilmPhotographyProject (go there!!)

I recently had a chance to purchase a box of the stuff, so I thought I’d give it a whirl…

As it turns out, it was exactly what I needed for our “retro-day at the fair”.

This is cross-processed in C-41 chemistry to give it a bit of a vintage look (and also because I was too lazy to mix up my last batch of E6…)

The colors can indeed be tweaked in post-processing (these were scanned on the Pakon…) but I rather liked the look of them.

I hope you enjoy,

    Really nice Mark really fun captures I’ll post you my E-6 versions when I wake up out of my “haze” 🙂

    A very nice collection. This film looks really nice, even when cross-processed. I love the third one!

    There was a particular fad for cross-processing in the ’90s (before people were able to ruin their photos with a computer) and that look is so dated, it should be disposed of as if it was hospital waste. But your examples are rather nice – vintage, but not stupid or faddish.
