Redscale Film - Inverted Images

Redscale film is fun for two reasons. First of all because of the warm orange, yellow and red colors that it gives (even on a cloudy day) and second of all because it takes inverted pictures!

Redscale film is fun for two reasons. First of all because of the warm orange, yellow and red colors that it gives (even on a cloudy day) and second of all because it takes inverted pictures!

This means that your images will appear as if in a mirror. The cars will drive on the wrong side of the road and the words will be written backwards! The reason is that redscale film is loaded backwards and you shoot through a protective layer of film.

When you develop your film the lab will do everything like normal, but becasue of it being loaded backwards inverted images will appear. You might want to alert your labs about this film and its effects as well.

If you want to revert your images again, all you have to do is to use your favorite editing program. But you might also want to leave it the way it is.

Happy shooting!

    ?????????? Mirror efect? how could it be? pictures invertion depends from film scanning side :) and not from the film invertion :)

    think about it... you take the film to the lab, and they run it through the machine normally... when they go to scan, they use the numbers... but the film was in the canister upside down, so they don't know they have to flip it... so either you tell them, or you have to edit them afterwards to be correct...

    of course, if you're thrifty and wise and scan your negatives yourself, you won't have this issue at all... ;)

    Seeing Manila in a Whole New Light

    I've photographed this city many times in the past—in color, black and white, and even in redscale. One day in March, the streets of Manila once again became my subject. Only this time, they turned into otherworldly places as the LomoChrome Turquoise drastically shifted its colors...at least on film.

    Turning the Turquoise Over

    The LomoChrome Turquoise film boasts bold and unpredictable colors, so I thought "redscaling" it would yield an even more dramatic result. Much to my surprise, the dominant color palette of my photographs revealed LomoChrome Turquoise's soft and delicate side.

    In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the second part of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    A Photo Board of 1960s Fashion

    If theater has the stage then fashion has photography. It is through pictures that trends and new looks are wheeled from coast to coast. Even 50-year-old prints can sway next generations of fashion plates. Take Jacqueline Kennedy's shipshape style and the mod crowd of New York and London, all veritable influencers until today.
