I put a roll of Fuji Sensia 200 in the new Contax T2 on Sunday. Admittedly when I first put it in I had thought it was a roll of superior; I was in a hurry and wanted some slowish colour film, I saw 200 and fuji and chucked it in the camera. After taking a few shots I spotted through the little window on the back that it was not what I had intended. I had actually been thinking of cross processing a roll of slide film recently as a friend has bought me a pair of rolls of Adox “color implosion”. Having not shot with anything like it before I figured I could have a practice with some old slide film and get a feel for the sort of subject I might like to shoot with it. With this in mind I decided to run with the Sensia for my day out with the family and see what turned out. I ended up shooting the whole roll in an hour or so, and I’m pretty pleased with the results. Not necessarily my “thing” as such, but I think they have a charm to their look.
There are a few more in the set on flickr here
A bit of fun, and once I got into it I did enjoy the mentality of shooting with little real idea what the outcome would be.
Looking forward to getting a chance to get some of this Color Implosion shot now …
