Redscale + Normal Double Exposure: Save Me from Mediocrity

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:

Thank you for reading!
