So when I went to Rarotonga back in 1999/2000 I was big into Cross Processing. You have to realize things were really different back then as it was still film. Oh sure they may have had some digital cameras but they were expensive and not very good quality. I used some ridiculous amount of film, I think 35 rolls.

Yikes, very expensive to process, cool thing is I have all the negatives and prints, so if something happens to our technology, there is still a record.

Anyways, cross-processing for those of you who don't know, is when you take slide negs and put them into neg developer- creating a negative with wild colour and contrast possibilities or the reverse of taking negatives and putting them into slide developer creating slides.

Remember the Survivor story I told you in the last post. Well I have this funny feeling, and it's possibly nothing, but I did have a website before with all these photos and I saw a suggestion asking where they should film the next Survivor and I wrote them and sent my links. I know it's probably nothing but I find it curious that they use like cross process images all the time for the intro. The funny feeling I get is I wonder if they got that idea from me.

Well we will never know. Anyways, as I said I was big into cross processing, now you can do it in the computer, but it's still not that easy of an effect to create, and often it just feels fake to me...because I liked the old fashion way. Watch in the next posts and I'll show you some more examples of cross processing.
