Over Christmas I received some more 110 film – this time a 3-pack of Lomography Color Tiger 200 ISO 110. I took one roll out for some test shots with Voigtlander Vitoret, and the results weren’t as bad as I was expecting. Unlike the Peacock X-Pro 200 film, the Tiger 200 doesn’t accentuate any of the colours, so I was expecting some fairly bland snapshots.
I found that if the pictures are taken in the right lighting conditions (bearing in mind the ISO is 110), the images can still have an interesting look to them. Like the other 110 films I have shot, the images have a grainy, retro feel to them. I think this has potential for some interesting street photography.
I recently received the prints from the last few rolls of 120 film that I shot with my Diana F+. This camera has been something of a learning curve, but I think I’m getting the hang of it.
One thing I’ve learned is this type of film (Lomography Color Negative 120 film 100), needs a heavy amount of lighting due to the low ISO. It is harder to take a decent picture in overcast weather.
Compare these shots taken in clear, daylight conditions:
With these, taken in December under overcast conditions:
Having said that, I think the above images have some potential despite than poor weather conditions. It might be harder to take a decent picture in this weather, but I actually find the pictures above to be interesting in a dismal, gloomy way.
