I did not have any expectations about this test nor have any idea what the output shots are going to look like. I normally invert color negative films to make them redscale, but not the other way around.
So just to satisfy my curiosity, I decided to reverse a roll of Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 to turn it into a negative film. As usual, I used my ever-reliable black jacket because I don’t have a darkroom or film changing bag.
I loaded the inverted roll into my new La Sardina camera during our family vacation in Puerto Princesa, Palawan and was surprised by the results!
Shots turned out hazy, very much different from what the usual color negative film renders, but I quite like the “vintage” feel to the photos. They look as if they were taken 10 or 20 years ago.
I’m totally clueless about what caused the fogginess. Perhaps, it was related to the extended exposure range of the film; maybe it’s just a pure accident, or something else. Whatever it was, I couldn’t care less.
I’m gonna do this more often. You should try it too!
