I haven’t shot a roll of Lomography Color 100 film in almost 2 years, but I don’t really know why. In going back through my archives of it this week, reworking some shots with my new negative conversion process, and better understanding of producing more film-like color, I’ve found it to be easy to work […]

Well, I did put another roll through it, a year ago, back when I first started developing my […]
