Cross Processed Ektachrome
These pictures are part of a roll of film I shot for Expired Film Day. The film is Ektachrome 100 (EPN 120) that expired in 1991. I metered it for ISO50. I figured there was going to be significant colour shifts and so I had it cross processed in C41 chemistry. I was surprised to find only minor colour shifts. I think the next time I shoot this film, I will have it processed using E6 chemistry, as it was designed for.
This is the first time I have XPro’d a roll of film, and several things about it were unexpected, even though if I had thought about it, some might have been obvious. The biggest surprise was that the film came out as negatives and not the positives they would have been with E6 processing. How is it that I didn’t know that already?
The rest of the roll, with more gritty and colourful urban subjects, is posted as the 8th roll in my 2016 52Rolls project, Expired Film Day.
