Tomáš Vostrejž's First Impressions of the New LomoChrome Color ’92 ISO 400 Film


Photographer and graphic designer Tomáš Vostrejž has a keen eye for a good street snap. He tested out the new LomoChrome Color ’92 ISO 400 35 mm film around Edinburgh, Scotland, capturing some of the local characters that are the fabric of the diverse city. We talked to him about his experiences shooting with this brand new color negative film!

Hi Tomáš. Why did you choose this setting to test our new Color negative 400 film?

I was asked to test this roll in the streets, which is my usual playground, some portraits of interesting strangers or locals, candid scenes, having no idea what results to expect or how the film behaves. You guys just said - have fun with it. And fun it was!

How would you describe the look of this film?

It's not shifting colors to somewhere unreal, but keeps the tones on the cooler side. The grain is just enough for 400 ISO film, not too noisy, not too smooth, nicely balanced.

What do you like most about this film?

Everywhere I could, I tried overexposing for a stop or two and that quality of keeping the final frame evenly exposed is always appreciated. But what I really liked the most is the cooling of the image, it's quite unique and does makes a difference.

How do you feel about a new color negative film being on the market?

I think with the competition and film prices, there's always fresh stock welcomed to the market. Compared to other manufacturers, I have always been more than happy with 400 and 800 ISO medium format rolls. These never disappoint, therefore I'm sure a new member to the family is going to fit in just fine.

What do you think is the perfect situation for shooting this film?

I'd say either an atmospheric portrait session or a sunny day in the city. Crispy light does great magic once landed on this roll – if you're lucky with the weather of course.

Which camera did you use with this film?

I have shot it with a rangefinder Minolta Hi-Matic 7s

What are your hopes for the future of film photography?

I always smile when someone tells me they shoot film for its flaws, for the light leaks, out-of-focus frames etc. even if film has been used professionally for decades. It's so good that shooting film is a liberating thing, that requires some knowledge or absolutely none at the same time; that it's fun with either perfect of imperfect images, it gives every pressing of the shutter button this huge value. I started learning photography with film only and it taught me a lot not just in terms of the manual aspect but also being more curious and open to what's happening around me.

Technology has made things so comfortable but film will never die. Maybe get more expensive again and again, but never die. It's a physical feeling, creates and captures memories and moments and scenes that will never compare to something surgically digi-perfect with a film simulation slapped on top. For those who want to experience the real thing, instead of editing and over-polishing reality, there's the world of film photography and a fantastic community within it. Shoot film and make every picture count, no matter if it's perfect or not, it's yours and everyone is unique.
