Mixing 400 ISO with 800 ISO


I bought a Lomography 800 ISO film this winter, just to try it out. As I put it in my LC-A, I found out that the ISO settings reach to 400. I got a bit frustrated, although I still hoped that the film could come out well. And actually, it did!

The reason I bought a Lomography 800 ISO film was, that I wanted to shoot pictures in gloomy places. Before that I always shot photographs with 200 ISO films, which aren’t made for shady places. So, as I finally got my film in my LC-A I noticed, that my ISO settings start at 25 ISO and end at 400 ISO, not like the LC-A+. I got a bit desperate, but I still wanted to shoot pictures, so I just thought “Whatever.” I set the ISO on 400 and began photographing.

After developing the film and first saw the photos, I couldn’t believe my eyes. They came out great! Most of the pics had a light red touch. But not like a redscale film. I don’t know if it’s because of the overexposure or the lens, but it’s a wonderful effect.

I now know, that mixing ISOs can lead to magical photographs. Try it out!

The LomoChrome Metropolis is the first truly new color negative film to be released in years. Following the success and now legendary status of the LomoChrome Purple and LomoChrome Turquoise, this new emulsion will be available in 35 mm, 110, 120, and 16 mm. Drenching your photos in muted colors, poppy contrast, and desaturated tones, this film is dark, grungy, quite unlike anything you've seen before. Back us on Kickstarter and help us usher in a new era in film photography!
