Coney Island Cross Processed 2012 – Welcome to the Scream Zone

This  week I’m going to feature cross-processed shots from my winter morning trip to Coney Island. I showed a few in this post, where I went into the details of cross processing, and the tricks for scanning cross processed images, but since then I acquired a scanning mask that let’s me th scan the part of the film that has the sprocket holes.

This is not similar to what happened here, where I accidentally aligned the film wrong and scanned a part of the sprocket holes by accident. Rather, when shooting 35mm film in a Diana F+ camera, you have the option to do so in a way that exposes the film from top to bottom, including the area with the sprocket holes. I di dthat here. Then you need to be able to scan the entire film, and that is a bit tricky since most scanning set ups are designed to exclude the sprocket hole areas on purpose.

This is the sign to the entrance to a part of the amusement area at Coney Island known as the Scream Zone, and here you can just see the “ZO” next to the face.
