My first time visiting London, my first Lomo workshop and my first roll of Lomography Redscale XR film - great combination!
My first time visiting London was awesome. And it got even better when I saw that there would be a lomo workshop during that time. Of course I booked me and my friend a spot and we were really looking forward to it.
It was a workshop about the new Lomography Redscale XR film.
This special redscale film gives you different colors depending on your ISO-choice (ISO ranges from 25 to 200).The colors ranges from greenish/bluish vintage-look to warm golden tones to hot red!
It was great to test the different ISO and play around with the cam. Since we got a LC-A+ for testing the film, we were in the need to trick the cam cause the ISO starts at 100 (most of you will know ;)). golfpunkgirl showed us all the tricks, like doing some multiple exposures or simply covering the light meter. Thanks for that, it was really informative and beside all the sweet facts we met some awesome lomo-addicts who gave two Germans a very warm welcome :)
I now got my roll back and here are the results.
Since I was straight shooting away, it’s hard to say which photo I have taken at the different ISO. But looking at the colors I would say:
Thats one lovely, adventurous film and I adore the vintage look at ISO 25 or the warm golden ones at ISO 50.
Go crazy testing and experimenting with this film! It’s fun!
I got myself a LC-A now and will definitively shoot some more! But it’s great to know that you can get those tones with your LC-A+ too by simply tricking her.
Thank you London for having us :D
See you soon!
Maybe there will be a workshop on 21st or 22nd of november? I already booked my flights ;)
This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.
It may take a while for some lomographers to figure out the perfect combination of camera, film, and accessory that suit their needs. But, Wessel de Haas, aka wesco, has been extremely lucky to find his early on his journey to Lomography. Find out what film and accessory he likes pairing his La Sardina 8Ball with in this edition of My First Lomo Affair!
About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
Roberto wanted to get redscale films during his visit to a Lomography shop in Amsterdam. Due to some twist of fate, the shop did not have stocks of it at that time. So, he ended getting rolls of Lomography Color Negative 400 instead.
Little did he know, this film is what he exactly needs to have a complete Lomography experience. Read on to find out more about robertofiuza and his Weapon of Choice - Lomography Color Negative 400!

Let it be known: this pairing has to do with love at first click, at the first roll of film, at the first prints. My newest toy, the Yashica Electro 35 GSN, combined with my favorite black and white film, Kodak BW400 CN: this is definitely going to be a long-lasting love.
