Crossing Film

Even though I am spending more time with B/W than anything else these days, I still like to take either Elitechrome or E100VS slide films and have them processed C41 as an alternative.

The crossing of the film gives you heavily saturated and colour shifted tones across the whole range of colours on both of these films that other slide films won’t give to you. The only problem is that they both come out with the shadows lacking definition when set normally on the camera.

The pictures below are therefore taken with the film run +1 stop (so 50 on the camera for the 100 film) and then processed at box speed.

Even though these are all taken somewhere between f1.4 and f2.8 on the camera and focused with a tiny DoF and sharpness that the Nokton gives – the Crossing will always blur the image – almost as if they have been printed with a rubber stamp that had too much print paste on it.

    nicely put: “almost as if they have been printed with a rubber stamp that had too much print paste on it”. that’s such an accurate depiction.
