    Push- and cross-processing Ektar - a brief comparison

    few days ago Will posted these interesting photos of his 2-stop pushed Ektar here
    so I thought it would be nice to find out also other processing variants people did. I was surprised- I found another pushed processed and a crossprocessed Ektar example, and the outcome is like having a completely different film! A side-by-side comparison is shown on my blog:

    I think it's just good to know Ektar offers us these interesting options as well

    I'm curious, with E6 cross-processing, did she use the times/baths as if the film were slide? Also, does it come out looking like a transparency? I would think the orange mask would remain..

    as for the E6 processing, I think she did, but I need to ask her how the actual slides look like
    I'll post as soon as I get the info

    in any case, Ektar provides an interesting (C41) pushability option, in my view

    What is the best way for cross-processing, from neg to E-6 or slide to C-41?

    well, I think it much depends on the taste, but in general, slide in C41 usually provides a more usable option-you can scan and correct the color curves etc or you can even optically print onto RA4 paper (not bothering too much for color filtration)
    Lomographers, for example, use a lot of crossprocessing, but only with (outdated?) slide film in C41 chemistry-plastic cameras are not really precise in terms of exposure...
    color neg film developed in E6 is a less common option, usually gives less usable results (very muted image)

    Just search the forums, there is a whole lot on here about this. I'm looking forward to trying a few rolls of Elite Chrome in C-41 soon.

    the orange mask, apparently, doesn't cause much of a trouble, as she states. I was shown the photos of the actual slides-the scanned images are pretty much a good representation of the photo itself. Blacks are black, and highlights lookk very clean, no visible orange cast seen.
    I need to try it myself, how Ektar behaves in other conditions, too: like portraits
    just can't wait...

    In fact i did once the cross processing, but i can't remember which one, maybe a slide in C-41, will check it again, but i will give it more try later and see how it will look.
