Shoot your beloved Lomography Redscale XR like you normally do, but after that...
I really know why the Lomography Redscale XR became one of my favorite films. You can use it in any light conditions, expose it from 12 to 400 without getting crappy results and shoot it a lot as it is so cheap.
But that is not enough for me. So I shot a roll of that red beauty with my Ricoh500G (it is light leaking, I know) set to 25Asa. What would you expect? Greenish results, low red, maybe a bit yellow or orange.
Bring you Redscale XR to your lab and do E6 process, so let it be developed as slide film! “What?” you may ask. It is cross process the other way round. Now why should you do that? I did not know what would come out, but I did not expect this explosion of red. You will get intense red tones, more red than the redest redscale you have seen. You should really try it out! I will do it more often and maybe try BW process, too…
When you scan the negatives you have to set the scanner for scanning slides

This is my experience with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 (120), my first medium format film. It's an adventure that started when I got a Lubitel 2, to finally shoot with it. In this article, you'll find detailed information about color schemes, the advantages of shooting in medium format, and the differences between standard redscale films. Here are the results of a day of shooting outside, which I recently got back from the lab.

There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
Do you love Lomography's Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 film? Me too! So let's see what it does when we shoot it through an assortment of color filters. I tried to document everything well enough that others could replicate and experiment on their own. I hope you find it useful.
