Nighttime Lomography Redscale Test Drive

Aloha everyone! I've seen daytime redscale photos a million times in contrast to the extremely rare nighttime ones. But I'm sure that they exist and I'm not the only one who came to the idea of nighttime redscale shooting. Even in Vkontakte Lomography group I've discovered hardly 5 or 6 ones.

Actually, I used Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 in Fed 2 with maximum aperture settings, as redscale films need a lot of light.

I think, that the use of a specific Lomo camera without precise settings would significantly extend exposure time. I suppose that the Diana required 2 or 3 min at least, whereas Fed 2 requires no more than 1.5 min (ISO 50, aperture 2.4, 4, and 8). A larger aperture will require faster shutter speed to ensure sufficient light exposure. Having shot everything I wanted, I decided to do some experiments just for fun:

And in the end here are some daytime photos with multi-exposure and slow shutter speed.

Other photos you can find in my Fed 2 album. Oh, nearly forgot, all these photos were taken in Kiev, from the roof of a building under construction.
