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!
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.

Whether behind bushes or in front of enigmatic women, a vivacious photographer always has a trusty lens strapped to his chest. In this Lomo spread, we take inspiration from Antonioni's Cannes-winning film Blow-Up.
