My Konica failure

800

My Konica slide film failure. I think I got this roll of film from a lady of whom I bought a spinner 360 from. I don’t exactly remember. So first of all the film was probably pretty expired, never properly stored cold and for some reason I decided slide was the best choice to shoot lots of night shots without a tripod. Yeah, that’s not exactly a recipe for success. You didn’t stand a chance you pool roll of Centuria film. Enough with the chit chat bring on the photos.

You can see the heavy purple haze that I had to remove. This photo wasn’t actually as badly underexposed as my other night shots. I’ve seen this type of heavy purple tinting with expired film before and especially when cross processing. But in this case I developed them as slidefilm and holding it in my hand and looking at them with a light source they don’t look as bad as my scans.

You can really see what the underexposure does to the shadows. Trying to save the shot in Photoshop really brings out some ugly blotches. I think I could have made it a bit better with some type of noise removal program, but at this point I don’t feel like putting more effort into these images. I just have to learn my lesson and take better ones the next time.

The daytime photos turned out a bit better, but the heavy purple cast was still present and removing it left the colors a bit muddy.

The following photos I took in Silmido. I still haven’t seen the movie thought I heard good things about it. We looked online to figure out exactly when the tide is low and you cross to the island. There were quite a few people camping on its neighbour island Muuido.

It was quite foggy and moody. Too bad my photos don’t really reflect that.

I asked a friend her opinion about Silmido and she had the following to say:

a) silmido is sad

B)i didnt watch the movie (boohoo)

What will my Cross processed slide film look like?

Buckle up ! And here we go.

I went trough most of my scanned film and picked out the various types of films I have cross processed along the way. Results always vary so I thought this would give a nice overview. Off course these results aren’t representative of all situations. Variations are depending on film lab, processing, use of expired film, time of the day, the stock market in Japan, whale routes in the Atlantic, so basically everything.

Roll 1: Fuji Sensia 100 Expired and very green shot with a Canon 500.

Roll 2: Fuji Sensia 100 Expired, much better balance in colour tones shot with light-leaky Olympus mju-2

Roll 3: Fuji Provia 100 expired, shot with a Holga and a heavy tint of Pink/purple.

Roll 4: Fuji Provia 100 expired, shot with Golden Half and same as roll 3, a bit pink.

Roll 5: Fuji Provia 400 expired. Unlike its brother, no Pink ! Greener tint.
