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.
