Redscale: You Know You're Officially a Lomographer

4

Using redscale film or having to DIY your own redscale film, you know deep inside that you are now officially a lomographer. This is because redscale is uniquely used by lomographers. By now, there are hundreds of apps that would recreate a lomograph, but the real thing is still way, way better. Still, there hasn't been an app that would create the beauty of a redscale photograph. Filters yes, but still no dice!

I have shot countless redscale films since starting my lomo journey. I have compiled countless of them and also have seen really, really good redscale captures from different lomohomes. As I have said, shooting with redscale films are uniquely for lomographers. Different apps have tried to recreate them but not one has even come close. Here are a few of my favorites, which I have seen and got inspired by.

There are thousands more around the different lomohomes that you will find yourself amazed by the creativity of these lomographers. You can even find different tipsters on how to use redscale films with different cameras.

Finally, here are a few of my favorite personal redscale stash that I have compiled since.

Now, the next time you’re out and about and the sun is up, why don’t you try and load up the redscale roll that you have.

    Wide-Angle Trio: So Simple, So Different

    Lomographers know that once you start collecting cameras, it's difficult to stop yourself. It has a very logical explanation: every camera produces unique images that are impossible to get using another camera. In this article, I decided to compare three cameras with wide-angle lenses.

    Photo Stories: Away With You by lomomowlem

    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.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
