The LomoChrome Purple film is among one of the favorites of artists out there. Lomographer @acasia and their surreal urban shots teaches us how to make the most out of this versatile purple formula.
A Colorful Standout
Here, Acasia strategically composes her shots by distinguishing color contrast between the subject of foreground and the background.
If we have cyanotypes for all-blue prints and Van Dyke Brown prints for earthy tones and golds, how about emulating the appearance of these processes with the LomoChrome Purple film? These shots of foliage and flora by Acasia remind us of the iconic azure prints of botanist Anna Atkins, but in dreamy purple! No need to fuss over chemicals and darkroom post-process, simply load a roll of the LomoChrome Purple and you’re already halfway there with your purple prints.
Teal Skies, Mulberry Streets
Instant art always exists on clear days. Those gray buildings and dull blue skies will easily shift the scenery to the urban wonderland you’ve been dreaming of with the LomoChrome Purple.
Recolor Public Graffiti
Ever wonder what some works of art look like? Take photos of street art and you’ll be gifted with the unique, contrasting harmony between surreal violets and greens. Remember: blue turns into green, green turns to purple, and yellow turns to pink! Playing around with the extensive ISO can easily shift the hues of the colors both deeper or lighter.
