What I love about Redscale-ing having a whole new red/orange universe in your shots but what happens if you reverse a slide film and cross process it?
So I wanted to know what kind of pictures would come out of an x-processed and reversed slide film. I took a roll of Lomography x-pro 100 film, reversed it in another film canister and went out shooting on a nice sunny day with my LCA+ set at 100 asa.
Well, when the roll was developed (you should have seen the face of the guy of my photolab when I told him that it was a slide film that I reversed and wanted to x-process), and when I looked at the negatives, I was a little bit “disappointed”, not of the total result of the shots, but because I hoped there was something really surprising happening to the colours… and judging from the negatives alone, it’s just a typical redscale….
However when I scanned the shots, the well known color saturation of x-pro films worked as well with this redscale and the red/orange color tones weren’t as soft as the Lomography Redscale film. The shots had a very deep red color, and some great orange contrast with much light. And finally I am seeing something more than I could get from a normal redscale!
I think that the shots can be improved by overexposing the roll (setting the LCA on 50 ASA for a 100 film for example) as they were a bit dark (but that’s true for other redscale films too). I’ll try to do this next time, and will use another slide film (Fuji or Kodak) and see if there are some different colour reactions than on the Lomo x-pro film. And of course, I’ll keep you informed of the next redscale x-pro experiment! :)))

Shooting with film can be considered a labor of love. From carefully loading the film and adjusting for lighting conditions to the darkroom process, it’s a laborious process but certainly a fulfilling experience. What more if you created your own cameras?
Have you ever tried going lens-less when taking a photo? Try shooting with ONDU Pinhole Cameras and see what it's like to take photos through a tiny pinhole.

What’s not to love about the Lomo LC-Wide? If you are a fan of wide angle lenses or Lomography, you probably have one in your collection. The LC-Wide is a powerful camera with many fun features to get creative when shooting. Best of all, all these are already built into the camera.
Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!
The premium New Petzval Lens allows you to set your subject against a soft, beautiful background of bokeh. But how about making the bokeh even more interesting by using shapes? Simply use the special aperture plates exclusively made for the Petzval and have fun!
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
