Purple is the new Pink

Holgamod Holga 120N, Lomochrome Purple 100-400 XR

____

Remember when Lomography first introduced this film that claims to emulate the long defunct Kodak Aerochrome film? Of course their site stated that this film is in fact not an infrared film but a specially made color negative film that predominantly converts green to purple and does not need any filter.

Now, I really don’t know what to make of my first test roll. Sure the leaves are mostly purple but the whole roll seems to be purple too! Bear in mind I shot this roll at the so-called magic hour, which in my opinion is not an ideal lighting situation for this particular film. I had this roll developed and scanned at a professional lab but some photos turned out murky and muddy looking so I rescanned them again at home. 

All in all, my curiosity is piqued and I can’t wait to test this film again with another camera and of course under bright sunlight. I wish I have the 35mm ones so as to be able to test them at different ISO settings but alas they were completely sold out and I had to make do with 120mm. (I don’t own a proper medium format camera, poor me).
