The Lomography Redscale XR is undoubtedly one of my favourite films, and here are some of my favourite photos taken with this film at the beach.
I love the beach and I love using film, so taking my favourite film to the beach has to be one of my all-time favourite things to do.
The beauty of the redscale XR film is the range of tones that this film can produce along with being incredibly soft and subtle with delicate creams and reds, this film also has a depth to it with gorgeous golden colours and honey-like, amber hues coming through the photos.
But aside from producing beautiful autumnal colours, this film can also provide stunning blue and grey contrasts that complement the red scale of colours so well. I find that in balancing the red tones against the blues, you can either create a very warm inviting photo or you can create a much colder image with the greys.
When taking redscale photos I use it in a very similar way to taking black and white photos, rather than looking for pops of colour I look for textures and contrasts, elements of the photo which will create the biggest variety and the best results with the tonal film. I want to create depth to the image along with a sense of time and age that redscale film can provide so easily.
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places. Inspired by a book which contains Boubat's photos taken in the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, I pay homage by showcasing some of my photos taken within the same geographic area.
I've photographed this city many times in the past—in color, black and white, and even in redscale. One day in March, the streets of Manila once again became my subject. Only this time, they turned into otherworldly places as the LomoChrome Turquoise drastically shifted its colors...at least on film.
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.
It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.
