Cross Process

Cross Processing is a technique that deliberately processes a type of film in chemicals that are intended for another film type. Originally, the technique was probably discovered by accident, but unusual and surreal effects can be achieved that give heavy red, green or blue bias to the results. It is easy to simulate the effects digitally by adjusting the RGB channels, saturation and contrast in image manipulation packages, although some of them come with a cross processing filter to achieve the results quicker. Like the Bleach Bypass process, not all images are suitable for this style of working, so experimentation is key.
