Redscale XR - My New Love

3

Beautiful results with the Lomography Redscale XR

Lomography Redscale XR is a film you can shoot between 50 and 200 iso. I decided to shoot it at 25 iso or- for the doubles- at 50 per layer to gain these results. The red scale goes from deep red to yellowish tones what is very nice. Sometimes I can even spot green tones in it.

What is Redscale?
Redscale films are turned the other side of the emulsion so you shoot through the backside of the film, the plastic layer. If you look at your negatives, they are orange. And this is the effect, redscale uses. You color the photos with the film itself -a simple and nice technique that sometimes even gain cross process effects – but without buying more expensive slide films.

You can make Redscale films yourself (there are many tipsters about that) or just take that beauty here – the Lomography Redscale XR.

Here are a gallery of snaps I did!:

The doubles are shot with my LC-A set to 50 iso each layer, so the film was overexposed one stop.

I used it with my Lomo LC-A set to 25 iso, too, shooting single layer.

And I tried the film with my Sprocket Rocket:

I really like the results!

    I recently took my films to develop and I didn't know that my films were redscale XR. Ther results were alright although most of the photos didnt develope. I'm still unsure of why most of them haven't turned out right but here is what I have ended up with:

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    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!

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest?

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Action.. basket time!

    As you can see in my albums, I love to photograph sports events. In this case, I used a pretty Actionsampler camera to document a mini basketball game played in the park of my city Como, in celebration of the Festival of Sports. It's a funny camera with interesting results! Take a look after the jump!
