I Shoot Redscale, You Should Too

13

Redscale film is one red natural film, made to provide us with awesome vintage photos and ghost golden ones. You can find one in Lomography Store or you can make one by yourself.

If you want to go DIY, all you need is one, all you need are:

  • unexposed color negative film (I use 100 ISO film)
  • scissors
  • duct tape
  • one empty canister

Follow the instructions from the video:

Usually, if you use this method, it’s better to rate the film one or two stops more ( as 200 ISO or 400 ISO) in order to get a correct exposure.

If you don’t want to do that, buy one from Lomography Store.

    yo lo hice hace unas cuantas semanas atrás, y lo que recomiendo es que cuando capturen las fotos las expongan bien a la luz; ya que así se obtendrán fotos mas rojizas.

    I didn't understand very well, did you just inverted the film? So you're shooting on the non-reactive part of the film or what? :S

    @fernandocallo I didn't understand either. I just shot the film on the oher side than normal. Btw, a redscale film normally rated at 400 Iso should be shot at 200 or lower Iso, due to the fact that the red filter covering the blue emulsion is darker.

    @fernandocallo @pvalyk yes, the way to make DIY redscale is to invert the film in the canister, meaning as you said, the non-reactive part of the film is exposed to light. it's very easy.

    i did this last week and used te diy redscale with my holga 135bc, but it got stuck at 12. so i re-winded it and loaded it again thinking that it just got stuck the first time, but it got stuck at 12 the 2nd time around. what do you think happened?

  8. pvalyk

    @iamdnierod i think the camera could not wind the film further. I got the same problem with the lca but I will see tomorrow if I shot all the film or not.
    It's to the fact that the back of the film is not so flexible as the front of it.

    yes, that's what i thought too, but i am going to try shooting the diy redscale with my slr, i hope that works!

    I think im gonna make a stupid question, But i gotta do the proccess ina a dark room, or it works too with light?, the film that u have in the video is the same one that were supose to be in the empty canister ? thx for answering IM NEW IN THIS :D

  12. pvalyk
    pvalyk ·

    @fabs is it has to be done in complete darkness. But you can do it in any room, not necessary in a dark room. The roll of film from the example video is not the one I used, it's a test film (already exposed).

    @pvalyk Thank u so much :), u are a great lomo colaborator

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    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!

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
