Do Doubles on Different Sides of Your Film!

When you flip your film and shoot on the back side of it, you get the lovely redscale. But sometimes I do miss the blue colour from the film when I do that. Why not shoot on both sides then!

I remember seeing this tipster a while back.

How exciting to make your own redscale film! But whats gonna happen if I shot on both sides, I wonder? I asked my friend Nic to shoot a roll of Kodak Gold 800, and I would flip it and do the back side. I thought the result came out fantastic!

So I did another roll on Fuji Superia 400 with the LC-A+ and Horizon.

So I guess different films do give a slight difference in tone on the flipped side. Haven’t tried any slide films yet. I guess that’s what I’m gonna do next. You guys should try it, too. It’s tons of fun!

The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!

The Horizon Perfekt shoots images the length of two standard frames. With full aperture and shutter settings, this premium panoramic camera gives you total control over your shots. Prepare to be blown away by the amazing Horizon Perfekt, available here.

    What a great idea! Does anyone think 100 ISO film would over expose the film of shot on both sides?

    Hello porkchopsandy! Does this work with every camera? I mean to use a "normal" film as a redscale? Nice greetings, jmwg

    Ya. But on the redscale side you'll have to overexpose your film by quite a bit. For example if you flip a 400iso film, you'll have to shoot it with 50 iso on the back side :) Good luck!!
