Surreal Purple Landscape

I mentioned a few months ago that I saw the documentary The Enclave at the Portland Art Museum. The documentary was filmed in Aerochrome which renders the landscape in brilliant pinks and reds. The choice of this film was brilliant for many reasons. Reasons that belong in their very own blog post.

This particular blog post is about film. Being a film photography enthusiast, I am fascinated by a film that changes the look of a landscape. Sadly, Aeorchrome is discontinued.

Enter Lomography*.

They are selling a film called Lomochrome Purple XR. The film does something similar in that it shifts greens to purples and creates very surreal landscapes. Blue Moon sells it locally so I picked some up and loaded it into my Olympus XA. Here are the results.

The film has an ISO rating of 100-400, so I tried it at 100, 200, and 400, depending on where I was. I didn’t see much of a difference in color shifts in the various ISO choices. The photos shot in brighter sunlight seem to be a bit more purpley but not that much more, as you can see above.

Yesterday I shot a roll of Lomo Purple in my pinhole camera at the beach and I am really looking forward to seeing how those came out. I will share the results here when I get them back from the lab.

*As much as I want to hate Lomography I can’t. They keep making products I like! Dammit!
