Tipster of the Week

For every lomographer who has been looking for tips to make their analogue life easier and more fun, the Magazine has lots of tipsters to use as reference. The past week's featured tipster may be useful to you if you plan to shoot redscales, so if you're curious, read on to find out what it's all about!

Shooting redscale film can be tricky whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned lomographer. The challenge does not end once you’re done doing the redscale—you also have to make most out of the roll and expose it properly to get the best hues possible!

Redscales are typically shot outdoors and fed with sunshine, but our featured tipster author uncle_jay says, “Who says you can’t shoot redscale indoors?” Well, if you have an LC-Wide, it can do the job nicely for you!

“Considering that the LC-W has a tendency to overexpose slide films in the great outdoors when shot at box speed but works fine when underexposed by a stop or two, it appears logical that redscale films are the natural choice for this camera.” — uncle_jay

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips
