Tipster of the Week: To Redscale or the Other Way


Doing both ways will surely double the surprises you can get as told by this week’s Tipster!

Front & Back Film by ethermoon

With the use of Fisheye2 camera, carefully load it with your favourite negative film and shoot your way! Now, rewind the film after finishing the roll but careful not to insert the film lead inside the canister. Cut the film lead and red-scale the film you just used. I used my LC-A this time, and overexposed it by one stop (i.e. 200 film the ASA setting should be on 100 and so on).

After finishing the roll, process it in your photo lab and enjoy! Since the Fisheye shots have those black half-circles in both sides, this will be a great place for your red-scaled photos to come up! Just check out the gallery and enjoy! Fisheye shots are on the normal side of the film, while LC-A part are the redscaled ones.

If you too have many cameras lying around, why not make some tips, tricks or modify them! then upload the fruits of your labor here and see them published!
