Crossed leaves

Colour Film,Photographica,Photographs,Projects — Jordan on August 31, 2009

Posted as-is from a drugstore scan (1500×1000 pixels) of cross-processed Ektachrome GX film. The scans were mostly blown out, but I liked the look.

They say that Kodak film works “best” at cross-processing. I have a lot of 120-format Provia lying around, so it might be time to test that hypothesis.

I shot this at a local park with the good ol’ Nikon F90 and 50mm f/1.8 lens. For all you Torontonians — I bought the film (expired 2006) for $1 at a camera fair last year, and had it developed and scanned at the Shoppers Drug Mart at Eglinton and Chaplin for $3. Talk about a cheap thrill!


  1. Aren’t those film deals from nowadays wonderful ? I managed to snap a bunch of E100G in 220 for the same price a couple years ago and keeps rendering colors quite well for my tastes (expired 2005). You hit bingo with this one, cross processing works wonders here.

  2. I’m a huge fan of film and this image is just amazing. The colours are really striking and the depth of field of the background is simply mind blowing. Really great work. Well done!
