The truth is that I wasn't convinced at all to use a redscale film, but if you don't try it you'll never know if you'll like it. In this case I didn't like it, I LOVED IT!
It was the first time I used a redscale film. Until now, I had used negative films and a pair of slide films (x-pro). My surprise came when I opened the roll. Was the negative upside down? I was so confused because even the other two rolls were like the other one. I didn’t know: Was it normal? or Was the package defective? Finally, I chose the first one and I uploaded my LC-A + with the film.
A few days later, having shot about 5 photos, I read a review of cohetesnaranjas. It explains why the negative comes on these orange and red tones. The trick is to reverse the negative and expose the film inverted. After reading the article I was more relaxed.
Well, here I show you some photos of my first redscale film. I changed the ISO of the LC-A (100 and 200 every time). That is why some of the photos came in orange tones and, the others, in red tones.
As I said, I liked very much the combination of the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 and LC-A +. So I ordered another pack of this redscale film from Lomography!

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

I love the different styles of cameras that Lomography has, but I also like to create my own cardboard cameras that use pinholes to be able to take pictures using traditional film. This time I created the Pinhole F, a camera inspired by the Diana F+ and shoots 12 pinhole photos using 120 film.

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.
