Cross processing Fuji Provia 100f…….

Mamiya-Provia_cross-012I decided this weekend to try my hand at cross processing some 120 slide film, I have both Velvia and Provia in the fridge and decided to try Provia first.

Mamiya-Provia_cross-006I have never shot slide film before let alone cross processed it so after a bit of reading up on the good old internet I set forth to give it a go.

This was the first roll through the Mamiya with the new AE Prism finder so as I didn’t know if the meter readings were actually correct I also metered by hand just to make sure the exposures were spot on.

Mamiya-Provia_cross-008Once the developing was complete I opened the Developing drum to be greeted with an extremely purple looking negative.

IMG_2223As I have not done this before I was very eager for the film to dry so I could scan them and see what I managed to get.

Once scanned I was surprised to see the subtle muted colours, from what I have seen on the web I was expecting high contrast and distinct colour shifts but instead got very smooth sharp images that suited the subject matter I shot.

Mamiya-Provia_cross-Maybe if I was shooting on a bright sunny day then the effect may have been a little different but all in all I was very pleased with the results.

I will try the Velvia next just to compare them both.

  1. Hi. Thanks for the ‘like’ on my hidden Bradford post. I’ve never been very attracted by what I’ve seen of cross-processing (mainly by the Lomo guys) so never tried it but these look great. I’m tempted to give it a go.
