5 Frames… Of surreal colour with Lomography Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm Format / EI 160 / Nikon F5 + Nikkor 50mm 1.4 G Af-S) – by Phil Bateman
When I first bought a 5 pack of Lomography’s Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 I wondered if the novelty might wear off after a roll or two and I fully expected to resell the rest. After a couple of rolls though, I realised there was something more to it than novelty and I couldn’t get enough. If you are shooting a false colour film whose primary effect is the conversion of green to pink/purple, it makes sense to play to its strengths and look for subjects that are mainly green. Luckily I live in the midst of the beautiful forests of Canada’s British Columbia so green is not a problem!
