This was a really fun roll of film to get back from the photo lab! I found a roll of Kodak Ektachrome slide film in my box of old film and had been wondering if I could get it developed anywhere. The lovely folks at Labworks suggested that I could get it cross processed as they don’t do slide film anymore. The colours would shift and get a little bit wild they told me. Perfect!
As I keep myself busy shooting different film in old cameras I thought that this would be a fun project. Old slide film from who knows when cross processed and scanned in. I figured I had nothing to lose.
I didn’t really know what to expect. I had actually never cross processed anything but I did know it was something that could be done. Well it was my time to give it a try. Nothing could have prepared me for the images that I got back! Yes the colours had shifted, the contrast was super high giving the images the most unique look and feel that I have seen straight from the lab.
I decided to break this roll up and make two posts about it. The first part of the roll has some images taken around Ottawa from 2001 or 2002 which we are looking at today. The second part of the roll was a mess of multiple exposures and took me a while to sort out what was going on! We will get into that next week. For now enjoy these old Ottawa pictures that have been finally developed and seen after 20 years.
