A fine weekend in London with nothing but blazing sun and blue skies! Highly unlikely I know, but a great chance to try out my first roll of Lomography Redscale 100 in my Holga GN 120. The results raised the question: will there ever be enough light for Lomography Redscale 100?
Excited by the prospect of that ‘evening sunset’ tone in my images (bordering on the sepia) I knew I would need a lot of sunlight to bring out the detail in the images.
I must stress here that the day (as unlikely as it sounds for London) was in fact extremely sunny and there was strong light. You’ll have to take my word on that! I experimented with single and multiple exposures. As you will see, the photos have come out relatively dark considering the setting. The photos of the London Eye were shot almost directly into the sun, with a bright blue sky behind it.
Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
