I often take photos and think "It's going to be another boring roll of film!" Then I found that it is never too late to save those boring shots. By taking the film out and shooting a second layer with redscale, the results can be exciting and mesmerizing.
The scenery was so dull and the weather was crappy when I set out to take photos with my Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim loaded with Fuji Superia ISO 400. I knew to photos were going to be crappy like the weather.
Then, I remember the DIY redscale which uses regular ISO400 film and converted to ISO 25-100 redscale film. So when I was done shooting, I took the film out and made a Redscale one out of it, and then put it back in my Vivitar.
Note: Vivitar UW&S has a fixed aperture of f11 and a fixed shutter speed of 1/125s. Please be sure to shoot something really really bright such as the sun. Otherwise, your redscale wouldn’t turn out at all.
I had my photos developed by a local lab and then I scanned them myself with Canon 9600f (with absolutely no color correction). I was just amazed by the results. Please have a look:
About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
Every week we will be selecting three Tumblr blogs with exciting, more often than not photography-related content.
For this week's selection, we have a little bit of everything: from double exposures and breathtaking scenery in film to a play-doh artist inspired by photography. Three very different blogs that are equally fascinating!
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.
Branded as "The Reanimated Film," KONO! Film is hand-rolled and made of special materials which are rarely (or never) produced for "normal“ photography. Rather, the materials were intended for the motion picture industry and the results can vary depending on how the film is used. Learn more in this interview with the founder of KONO! Film, Uwe Mimoun.
Whether it embodies something that's light as a feather or dreaming on cloud nine, show us your best analog shots in relation to the theme "lightness" and be rewarded with great products from the creative start-up Crispy Wallet as well as prizes from Lomography.
On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
