LomoChrome Purple is a color negative film that captures life in a very unique way.

LomoChrome Purple film lets you explore the color spectrum like you never have before. Blue becomes green, green becomes purple, yellow becomes pink. Red tones stay red, which keeps skin colors natural in a sea of trippy tone.  Aside from its remarkable color quality, the New LomoChrome Purple delivers vibrant photos with superb sharpness. You can shoot it in any weather condition and achieve breathtaking effects without using any special filters.  Control the color changes in your photos by selecting different ISO settings. Green tones will become a shiny purple when you use an ISO 100 setting, but with an ISO 400 setting greens will instead become a darker indigo.

The switched colors gave me another factor to think about when composing my shots, and it gave them some very interesting effects. I was impressed by the sharpness this film is capable of, as well. My one complaint would be that the shadows are kind of muddy, especially when I meter for 400 ISO, I think. I will be buying more of this to experiment further!

I shot my first roll of Lomo Purple at 100 iso in China with good light and the results were hit and miss, some were not purple at all. I’ve subsequently shoot a roll at 400 iso with better and more consistent results.
