Experiment: Cheap Film Scanner and Redscale Film

12

Here's another tipster that is quick but need some patience to accomplish!

The examples seen in this effect were done with DNP Centuria 100 (Do-It-Yourself Redscale Film). I recommend to use just any ordinary negative film that is both cheap and simple to play with.

What You’ll Need

• 1 Roll Redscale Negative Film
• Patience
• Cheap film scnanner (I bought it for USD 22.00 only!)

Step One:
Load the film into the camera. Snap, snap and snap. Rewind the film.

Step Two:
Keep your film at warm place (window, kitchen, etc). Just leave it up to a maximum of 4 months. Add some patience and excitement while you wait for the result. Then process it normally and scan it with cheap film scanner.

Voila! these are my results;

    do you think it is really necessary to let the redscale film rest for 4 months ?
    I think the effect mainly comes from the cheap scanner :). As the film is redscale the scanner has some trouble with the auto-white balance. Maybee the scan is only with 8-bit color-depth then the inverting is a little hard to do ..

    totally agree with @angelhaken the result comes from the cheap scanner not the film. I bet if you send them to print, you´ll be most amazing by the results and the complete different outcome you get. ever tried using a good scanner on them. I assure you time is unlikely to affect the negative inside the cannister.

    @luna_antonio well i think the time ( 4 months on a hot place ) will actually effect the film but not in the way visible on the images. ( not really ) . You might loose some tonal range ( pictures get dull ) and you will loose some sharpness as well as the gelatine layer is affected by heat.

    which cheap scanner did you use? I really want to buy one for just 30 quids but im doubtful with the results i will get.. will my pictures be poor quality?

    Film Experiments: In The Dark - The True Analogue Experiment

    Throwing chemicals, fire, and scratching emulsion are just a few ways of experimenting with film. But there's another process that completely destroys it (or, if you're lucky, creates something amazing), that is as spastic as a drunken man staggering his way home after a night at the pub - literally. And it all comes down to darkness.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    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.
