Lomography LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400 in use

Taken from the original review here on EMULSIVE:

Lomochrome Turquoise isn’t a film to everyone’s tastes but it is rather fun to play around with and it certainly has its creative applications.

Unlike Lomo’s previous new film – LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400 – LomoChrome Turquoise doesn’t really change a hell of a lot under different ISOs, or when shot with different filters on your lens. (This is based on the very bright sunlight in my test, your results may vary).

Like Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple, the shifts will deepen the closer you get to ISO400. Although they diminish a touch towards ISO100, they still dominate the results. I didn’t test this film down at ISO50 but I’d have to guess that it’ll shift to pastel blues and greens based on the ISO100 results. I’ll let you know in a future update.  Ok, time to move on to the proper ISO and filter tests.
