Redscale Radness: Snapping Skate in Sweden this Summer

This was the summer of skate: from skateparks to DIY spots to invited adventures. One trip in particular sticks in our mind and on our negatives. A weekend shooting skate in Malmo and Copenhagen which we caught using the LC-A and a roll of redscale film (amongst others). The shining sun allowed for rad tricks to be perfectly exposed on our film, capturing redscale radness.

Remember when the days were longer and the sun was shining? We took our chances, and went skating at every available opportunity, and by getting on board, we pushed our way into a load of adventures that our normal feet/shoe combo wouldn’t have provided.

With a carry-on backpack full of cameras and film, we headed to Copenhagen then Sweden for 56 hours of sunny skate snapping. Whippy quarters and fizzy drinks at the first downtown park we hit.

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

    Summer Hot Spots: The Dreamy Desert of Palm Springs

    With a camera loaded with Lomography X Tungsten 64 ISO, we went to Palm Springs in June to capture the desert heat and vibes. It was a battle to make it in the 40° scorching sun, and somehow our film survived although it was left baking in the car. So take in these dreamy snapshots of a place where time stands still and the sun always shines.
