Stupid Belgian weather


I looked out of my window when I woke up this morning and there was clear blue sky. At 9am the sky was still blue. So I decided to work further on my crazy EBS shots. My first series were taken with a blue sky and were unintentionally heavily underexposed. I like the effect of the washed out parts. I got this idea by reading on the new purple haze film Lomography is making. It looked like this:

My second series was shot on an overcast sky at different exposures. I like too, but I did not get the washed out effect. Looking like this:

And yes I did use a gradient red filter.

So as the sky was blue today, I saw the opportunity of dong it again, on a blue sky background. Hoping to get the washed effect again.

But then I saw the weather forecast, which said it was going to snow today. I looked outside and the sky was still lovely blue. So I got into the dark and I redscaled some film. When I got back… yes gone was the blue sky and the first icy rain was falling down.

Bye bye shooting redscale today.
