I just love to see the world in RED, and in this review, I want to show you 5 color negative films that I made into redscale films.
I don`t really want to show you how to make a redscale film at home, but rather just to compare and show 5 films with pictures to let you know what you can expect. If you want to know how to make a redscale roll, you should click here
I exposed the roll at the given value and almost all the pictures were underexposed. I recommend you to expose the film 2 or 4 times longer (depending on weather).
100 → 25/50, 200 → 50/100, 400 → 100/200, …
The 5 films that I compared on the basis of pictures are…:
Rossmann (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 100
DM Paradies (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 400
DM Paradies (German drugstore) 400, exposed at ISO 200
Kodak Farbwelt (“Colorworld”) 100, exposed at ISO 25
Kodacolor 400, exposed at ISO 100
1. Rossmann 400
2. DM Paradies 400
3. DM Paradies 400
4. Kodak Farbwelt 100
5. Kodacolor 400
Of the 5 films, I like the Rossmann 400 most, because it gives such an intensive RED.
I hope I was able to help you with your next decision on what film you choose to redsale. :)
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
Redscale photography is a popular technique that yields dramatic images of red and yellow by exposing color negative film back-to-front. Now meet bluescale, a simple way to achieve striking cyan photographs.
With its surreal, psychedelic results that easily remind one of fairy tale-like wonderlands, the LomoChrome Purple has quickly grown to become one of the most popular emulsions in the community. We're giving you that extra push in the form of more community-penned reviews to finally try this film yourself, if you haven't.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

Ever wanted to reproduce the mood of alternative photography but find the materials too costly? Worry no more, we have a list of films to give you unique coloring and a distinct, life-in-retrospect look.
Seeing cool masked photos on the Lomography site made me want to experiment with the Lomo'Instant. Making masks for the Lomo'Instant is slightly different than that for other Lomo cameras, but the steps in this article should make it easy.
At the end of October last year, René Burri, a great master of photography of the last century, passed away. As a tribute to him, I would like to show you some photos that I took last month at EXPO 2015 in Milan, which was inspired by his series featuring the world's fairs held in Osaka, Okinawa, and Montreal. Take a look!
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
Last summer we were lucky to visit 4 cities in 3 different countries, just within a few days. This was reason enough to give my very first LomoChrome Turquoise a try. Afterwards I was astonished by the absolutely unexpected colors of the shots.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
