Neons will always look good with Cinestill, specially the red ones
Well, Cinestill 800T it’s because of its tungsten balanced chemistry. Those can be found at night in any street, and that is why this film is so ideal to document night life
Just at night or in interiors.
As with any tungsten balanced film, if it is used in daylight situations you will just end up with blueish photos
Beware with light leaks.
This film is really sensitive to light, and its metal chasis is not 100% light proof. So make sure to keep the roll inside the black container so as to avoid any light leaks on the first shots. Or don’t 🙂
Don’t leave it on the camera for more than a month.
Its emultion kind of “gets dry” and some of the last photos of the roll might end up with blue/green lines#6 – Push, push, push. If you want to try pushing its ISO to 1600 or 3200, go for it. The results are amazing with barely no grain.
These tips come from an article I did a few weeks ago in Spanish. https://andreainesfotografia.com/2019/01/30/como-usar-cinestill-800-todo-lo-que-necesitas-saber/
