If you like the colors of expired film but your fridge is filled with film that expires in some years, you’ll like this very simple tip.
If you are the proud owner of an automatic camera like the Lomo LC-A+ or the Olympus XA or any camera that allows you to set the asa and that changes the exposure time varies automatically, you can manage how much red your redscale pictures will become. It´s so simple like overexpose the film 3 stops or more. I discovered this because I was using Velvia 50F and I forgot to set the asa value when I changed the film. In the example shot was used Fuji superia 400 @ 50 iso and Agfa Vista 200 @50.
As you can see as the film advances I realized my mistake, so I decided to keep varying the asa value at random – following my Lomographic spirit – and taking note of what value was set for all the shots. Because of my lack of money the developing process was made pretty normally: the 400 asa film developed at 400 and the 200 asa film at 200. The eyes of the lady at the lab while gave me the printed pictures told me everything: my experiment was a complete succes! The result was some pictures with superb vintage look, others with expired film look and even some close to redscale shots, all in the same roll of film!
