Emma Kidd (Double Exposure+Cross Processing= <3 <3 <3)

…I’ve shared my complete & utter love for lomography and toy cameras before, through my posts on diana camera photos & the always super awe-inspiring double exposures. But one other style of old school film developing that I can’t get enough of is cross processing. It involves processing your film in chemicals for a totally different type of film. I love the mystery and experimentation aspect of this procedure. There is a sort of magic that takes place, especially with the colors and there is also an intensely major anticipation you don’t get with just using digital all the time. I often play around and add the cross processing affect to my digital photos because I just love the atmosphere it gives them so much…I know, I know…cheater..

…I’m leaving on July 10 for a 10 day vacation to visit family & friends and BEACHES, and CANNOT wait!! I am bringing along my diana camera and hope to get some cool shots. I have oodles of black & white film but must pick up some color so I can get some cross processing coolness done. I cannot wait already and I haven’t even taken the photos yet! :)

…Do any of you ever play around with old school cameras? I love having digital too, but it’s fun to mix it up!! :D

These are absolutely fab! I'm a bit of a novice with cameras and all that techy stuff you're talking about there just totally flies over my heard!! But the results are terrific! Have a super wonderful holiday in the sun! Are you taking your peeps? I'd love to see photos of those two frolicking amongst the waves! XO

um, i didn't even know what cross processing was until reading this post! love these pics! the effects one can get with camera shots are seemingly UNLIMITED!!! i don't know anything about lomography or the diana camera. i am so far behind!!!

i have an old school camera, but i haven't used it in years. my mom tells me it is getting harder and harder to find people that develop film, but maybe that isn't true? weird. things have changed so much in the digital era!

Very interesting. I took photography in college and we used 35mm mostly black and white film, it was interesting and so much more work too.
I wish you a wonderful vacation!!
I am in Yosemite now with not much internet, but I will try to blog when I get the chance.
