Last month I went out from my small city on the state of St. Catarina to go to Brasilia to study at the UnB (University of Brasilia). I knew that I will stay at the city for a small time, so I went out to test the newest product that I bought from Lomography Shop: a Holga 135BC and some Lomography Redscale films.
Antes da viagem fiquei atenta a previsão do tempo: chuva e céu nublado. Before the trip, I took a look at the weather prediction. They said it was going to be a rainy/cloudy week. So I decided to take some ISO 400 and 800 with me and of course, my Redscale XR that I just bought.
Brasília is such a wonderful city, so easy to walk around and the people are very friendly. The weather was good. Not so hot with a good, cold breeze. It was perfect to go out with my Holga and take some pictures as it was so cloudy, I decided to first use a Kodak UltraMax ISO 400.
After I used up that entire role of film, I decided that – the weather was starting to cooperate, and a beautiful sunny morning was upon us – I then loaded my Holga with a Lomography Redscale XR (ISO 200). Check it out.
I really like the results. It was my first time to use a Holga (before that, I only had a Fisheye One), doing long/multiple exposures. And it was also my first time with a Redscale film – which impressed provided me with impressive results.
Brasilia is a great city to live in, everything is near. The organization and the architecture of the city is very impressive. The university was amazing and I learned a lot. I had a wonderful experience there, I can’t wait to go back to that city again.
