This is not for the faint of heart. But its my first love. The moment I first saw a cross processed photography, it made me try to figure out how to do that, which lead to me experimenting with film and eventually dropping the digital altogether.
I love the colors and the fun of it.
My favorite combination is my lomo-wide and lomography 100 xpro film although the holga and kodak e100vs is a close second.
Cross processing is just the practice of taking one sort of film, usually slide film (e-6), and processing it as a different film, usually color negative film (c-41). When its done right, you can get super saturated colors and contrast.
tips: shoot with the sun behind you (axis lighting), or open shade can be fun but don’t backlight, and works best on bright and sunny blue sky days.
If you love this, check Flickr for lots of examples (or lomography.com) and the book Hot Shots is cheap and has great how to advice.
