I'm trying to understand these techniques where you take E-6 transparency film and process it in C-41 chemistry and take C-41 negative film and process it in E-6 chemistry.
What sre the results like? I assume in the first, you get a negative and have to print from them and in the second you get a transparency or slide? Why would you do this?

Do you need to use filters or make any special camera adjustments when taking the pic before you can use these techniques? What are some ideal conditions to do this?

In a word, the results are strange. The color balance shifts all over the place ... very odd, and as near as I can tell, intitially unpredicatble, although, after a while, one could make educated guesses as to the final results. I've seen cross-processed prints, but not slides - although I guess anything is possible.

I haven't ried cross-processing, not on purpose. It has always struck me as a little too "gimmicky", but ... I won't condemn anyone who wants to give it a shot, or use it as a steady diet.

Filters? -- Special camera adjustments? I wouldn't have a clue. The only way to do this is to experiment and see what happens.

Why do this? ... Uh ... "Art" or "Curiosity" or "To have a unique apporoach to talk about over cocktails at the reception..."?
