Your just starting to look around for photographers & everybody starts using terms that you have no idea what they mean - like E6, blue tone etc

Here are some of the main definitions & example’s to help you on your way.


This is a slide film that gets processed in normal colour film chemistry called C41. Technically, this procedure isn’t the correct thing to do & is unpredictable. However the results can be amazing with wonderful rich & saturated colours. Blues & reds are fantastic, it is best used outdoors and on clear day. Results can also be achieved digitally by computer manipulation.

Examples of E6 or Cross Processing


You can have any black and white images that were taken on your day coloured numerous tones. The most popular is sepia. Both sepia & blue toned images can vary in shade. Result can also be achieved digitally.

Examples of Sepia (left) and Blue Toning


Numerous ways to create this look.

  • With a high speed film (very sensitive to light)
  • Result can be achieved at the time of processing
  • Digitally on computer

This high speed film is fantastic when your photographer wants to avoid flash & in low light situations. Eg: during a church service. Degree of grain does vary.

Examples of high speed film and grain


There are literally 100’s of filters available. Generally only a few, if any, would be used by your photographer and mostly for B/W. Results can be achieved with film or digitally on a computer.

Example: Image with a red filter on camera to create a dramatic sky & enhance clouds

We hope that this helps you understand different techniques used by photographers.
