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
