I don't have a darkroom (I wish I did!) I use Film Depot for all of my Black and White 120 and 35mm, and my color 120. For my color 35mm, I go really declasse and process (including cross process) at either Target or Costco! This piece was done before I lived in Denton (I've only lived in Denton for a year.) This particular photo was processed in Florida at a place there. Film Depot/BWC is too expensive for me to process the many rolls of 35mm color film that I shoot. Target will cross-process for me here in Denton, and Costco in Southlake will, too. (The Lewisville Costco has bad quality, I find.) Target's machine cross-processes negatives as well as Film Depot, so that's fine with me. Obviously, their prints are NOT as good as Film Depot/BWC. For my gallery show, I had a place in Baltimore do the prints--they are very unique and better (in my opinion) than BWC (where Film Depot sends out to.) I've been down to Dallas to take stuff their directly, but once I discovered Film Depot, I just go there now.
Yeah, I have dozens of rolls of film and much of it I'd like to cross process, but I do find Film Dept a bit too expensive. Thanks for the tip on Target. I'll assume since they do cross process that they also do slide film.
Target will xpro your slide film as c-41, but they won't process slide film as straight up slide e-6. for that, film depot seems to be the only choice in town. there's that woman over on teasley, near applebees, but she's A FREAK. i had her do a few things for me last year when i first got to denton, but she turned into a psycho at some point and went off on me and my husband. her work is crap, too, so no loss.
when you go to target, they might try to tell you not to do it, but i just tell them that i know it will come out wacky and i'll take the risk there's one girl there who knows me now and knows that i process "weird" film!
glad you're coming to the exhibition--please let me know what you think of them in real life
this is a brilliand shot! the contrast the shadows everything
even the colours of the x-prosses came out very good,
i usually just get extremelly supernatural ones, but these look like a filter
thank you very much! this is one of my all-time favourites that i've ever taken--and the cross-processing resultes on this just shocked me and delighted me! in "real life" this was a very bright sun on the sign but the background was in the shade--the lomo and the cross-process made it look like the moon!
sure! cross-processing is when you develop slide film in the chemicals for negative film, or vice versa. In this case, i took slide film (E-6) and developed it in the chemicals for negative film (c-41). It alters the colors dramatically, depending on the brand of film and the conditions. It's a lot of fun--you should give it a try!
