When you get bored with color negative and black & white film, but you don’t have much money to buy slide film, redscale film is the solution!!
First time I saw a picture with reddish and brownish color, it was vibrant and really attracted my eyes. Oh yes, this is redscale film. Then, I browsed about redscale film and how to make it. I still remember that I asked my friend too, just to make sure that I’m not doing it wrong. I chose Kodak Colorplus 200 as my first, aside from this film being cheap, it’s easy to find them at my city. In order that the film won’t get leaks or exposed, I did it at night in my room with a blanket because I don’t have a changing bag.
Well, after the film was ready I tried to shoot during noon in order to not get underexposed results. I shot my little cousin in front of my home :)
With this film, you can find a vibrant tone that attracts your eyes! Just don’t forget to see where the light comes from.
I set the aperture to cloudy, because you’ll lose 2 stops if you’re redscaling film.
So, what’s your impression about Kodak Colorplus 200 DIY redscale?? :)
