If you are new to redscale film or not really experimented with it, this is a great tipster, experiment with the ISO of the Redscale XR, to see which colours you like best, unless like me you can’t decide!
If you are new to using redscale, especially the Lomography XR Redscale, I think the best tip I can give you is experiment with the ISO rating on you camera. The ISO rating of this film is 50-200, and changing the rating on our camera can give you completely different results. If you like the intense reds and oranges then you would want to set your ISO to 200, if you prefer the more subtle colours with a bit more blue and green tones, you want a lower ISO nearer 50.
But I suggest at least for the first roll if you have a camera in which you can change the ISO, to take one photo, change the ISO and then take another photo similar to the first. This way when the photos are developed, you can see how changing the ISO gives you different results and how it effects the film. I have done this both in a LC-A+ and an Olympus XA2 and they have worked well, I am sure there are other cameras you can try. Of course you can also set the ISO to anywhere inbetween these settings.
On the following examples, the lower ISO is first, the higher ISO second.
I can never decide which effect I prefer so that’s why I tend to like to change it around throughout the film. Why not have a go yourself and see what you prefer?
Load up the Lomography Redscale 100 35mm film and achieve the warm-tinged effect produced only by exposing the negative on the reverse side! You’ll get breathtaking square shots evoking intensely warm, honey hues. See our selection of Lomography films here.
