Miscommunication aside, everybody’s got to deliver and here’s our top picks for the recently concluded ‘Le Rouge: Film Redscaling’ rumble! The winner gets a whopping 20 piggies and our two-runners up receive 10!

For the record, the process of film redscaling is:

“Redscale is the name given to a technique of shooting photographic film where the film is exposed from the wrong side, i.e the emulsion is exposed through the base of the film. Normally, this is done by winding the film in upside-down into an empty film canister. The name “redscale” comes because there is a strong color shift to red due to the red-sensitive layer of the film being exposed first, rather than last (the red layer is normally the bottom in C-41), at least when C-41 film is used. All layers are sensitive to blue light, so normally the blue layer is on top, followed by a filter. In this technique, blue light exposes the layers containing red and green dyes, but the layer containing blue dye is left unexposed due to the filter. E-6 (color slide) film has also been used for this technique.

Depending on the type of film used, the resulting colors seem to range from maroon, to red, to orange, to yellow." – Redscale on Wikipedia

We have then reached our final verdict:

1st Place (20 piggies):

Runners-Up (10 piggies):

Head on to our Rumble FAQ for information on prize awarding. The piggies received for winning a rumble will be usable in the online shop for 1 month after installment.

Congratulations to the all winners, have a great weekend everyone!

    Sooooo stoked! Thanks LSI, glad you liked my shot. There were so many great redscale shots in this rumble, fakers aside, it must have been hard to pick the winners. Congrats to everyone who took the time to try out this fantastic, chaotic, sometimes maddening, and serendipitously wonderful analog process. Remember with the new lomo redscale film, you will still have to tell the lab it is backwards in the canister, cause its got to go in the C-41 machine emulsion side down. Lomo on!
