Experiment with sepia! This is what you can achieve by printing your redscale xr film in sepia.
A while ago I bought the Lomography Redscale XR film, shortly after its release, however I found I didn’t particularly like working with redscale. After a long time in my camera I took it to my local Boots for them to process. When I came to pick them up they told me they’d made a mistake and printed my photos in sepia, but when I looked at them I didn’t complain.
The overall tone holds a sepia-like quality but some colours still stand out, the pictures have more of a fuzzy warm feeling than a redscale snap. However some of my photos came in a pretty flat sepia tone like the funky tree in the photo above. Some of the photos taken in lower light came out very very grainy – so I’d be wary of shooting indoors.
These are some more recent photos with even wilder colour variation, some almost seem black and white! The photo of the Diana F+ was taken with the diana flash – which allowed clear indoor photography and plenty of colour pop!
So try experimenting in sepia! I know I’ll be buying more redscale XR now
Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
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.

And if that wasn't fascinating enough, this talented gentleman with an obvious devotion for film also develops and prints his own images.
