Please tell us more about yourself.

Well, I am passionate about photography of all kinds but most obviously with Lomography and analogue photography. About 10 years ago, I decided to bring this passion professionally at our local. Recently, I ventured on a new adventure along with a partner on decorative picture. But, I like to experiment and learn every day.

Why is Lomography Redscale ISO 100 (120mm) your Weapon of Choice?

I think this is the most original film in Lomography’s catalog which can give unique and disturbing results.

Any memorable experiences you’ve had while using the Lomography Redscale ISO 100 (120mm)?

Yes! I used this film quite a lot because I like the reds that it produces. A friend told me that scenes seem to have that post-nuclear feel, which I really prefer, and encouraged me to continue using it.

Recently, I went to visit the Father Costa Llobeta’s gardens in Barcelona to photograph the cactus with my beloved Diana F+ and here are the results:

Would you recommend the Lomography Redscale ISO 100 (120mm) to other Lomographers? If yes, to whom do you have in mind?

Yes, of course! I think that anyone should try this film! I love the reds that can be obtained with this film. I am not discouraging anyone. :)

When using theLomography Redscale ISO 100 (120mm), what are you favorite subjects to photograph and why?

I think it is not good for photographing portraits. The subjects will appear a little weird with these fiery shades. It is ideal for landscapes. It gives a strange impression to the places we know, like a cross between old and post-nuclear landscapes.
