Intense the Redscale XR

Shoot your beloved Lomography Redscale XR like you normally do, but after that...

I really know why the Lomography Redscale XR became one of my favorite films. You can use it in any light conditions, expose it from 12 to 400 without getting crappy results and shoot it a lot as it is so cheap.
But that is not enough for me. So I shot a roll of that red beauty with my Ricoh500G (it is light leaking, I know) set to 25Asa. What would you expect? Greenish results, low red, maybe a bit yellow or orange.

Forget that!

Bring you Redscale XR to your lab and do E6 process, so let it be developed as slide film! “What?” you may ask. It is cross process the other way round. Now why should you do that? I did not know what would come out, but I did not expect this explosion of red. You will get intense red tones, more red than the redest redscale you have seen. You should really try it out! I will do it more often and maybe try BW process, too…

When you scan the negatives you have to set the scanner for scanning slides

    i did the same in reverse some time ago. also quite interesting. i got some really nice magenta tones out of this. i used cheap 100 iso slide film from dm(an austrian drugshop company). word is that it's kodak ektachrome 100 that didn't pass the kodak-quality-checks. so maybe you could get similar results with redscaled ektachrome.

    Ahh, finally i know why my XR film was only red :D And i thought that my camera perhaps makes no changes by changing the film speed.
    Here the albums for further examples (iso speed set from 50 to 200):
