One day I had the idea to make color gradients with my computer and picture editing program and some other stuff to give my pictures a touch of color. You can also do it analogue style with rainbow paper!
At first I generated different color gradients and shot them on my monitor. I shot a complete roll and rewound them back in so I can shoot with them using my other cameras. But they lied a long time in a box and are still waiting to be used.
Fortunately, I saved the gradients on my computer because I underexposed a DIY redscale film with closeups using my Belair. I invested some time to measure the film for the shots so I really wanted to get great results. Then I had the idea to do a second exposure on the normal side with the gradients. During the process, I was worried what the results will look like. But luckily for me, it turned out alright! Here are my results:
I was so happy about the pictures that I repeated the process immediately. I loaded a roll in my Belair and shot gradients on the normal side of the film. I did the process again and did a redscale film using the Belair. Here are the results:
Because I like the photos, I did another using my Horizon camera. I thought that with this dismal weather, a little bit of color could be nice and just look at what great pictures I got with it:
I think it looks like a light leak on some photos and I simply love it! Surely I’ll do this again. The next time will be with the LC-Wide and the half frame setting so i don’t have the “bar” on the pictures. I already have one roll prepared to be shot in dreary weather!
Enjoy shooting with gradients!
