I’ve used a handful of redscales—DIYs and Lomography Redscales. For DIYs, a good number of times, they are underexposed, for Lomography Redscales, some shots are still underexposed. Without going to too much analysis about film density and time exposure, I figured double exposing them would do the trick.
Even in broad daylight, I’m surprised to get some underexposed redscale shots.
A quick get-around with this problem is double exposing it.
Most of these shots were taken at dusk, knowing that, I double exposed it to minimize the grains in the shadows. Now I’m not telling you to double expose your entire redscale roll. Don’t force your shot but if you want to take some chances, shoot directly at the sunset.\
And hope you have enough sunlight to avoid those unwanted grains.
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.
