Cross-processed Provia 400X again. Really should buy some more of this stuff…
This was a bit of a surprise–
This is Provia 400X (E6) shot at ISO 800 (Pushed) and cross-processed (cheaper and easier) in C-41 chemistry.
Other than scanning with the Fuji NPH 400 profile, I have done nothing to it in terms of adjustment. The colors may be a bit off (overly blue…) but I am surprised at how reasonable the skin tones look.
So apparently slide film is very intolerant of underexposure. I think it is because the negatives are so dense. These were all about a stop under (except for maybe the fourth one…) and I just can’t really pull them back in LR at all.
Anyway, they have a nice “vintage memory” ethos about them, so I guess I really can’t complain.
