Redscale XR - My New Love


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!
