Redscale: One Technique, Different Looks

Redscale is not limited to burning reds and blinding yellows. It's a technique that presents many possibilities, depending on how you use it. You can use a point-and-shoot camera, but a manual camera lets you explore the settings that provide various results. If you're new to this, you can find a lot of articles written about it in the magazine. But if you're in a rush or in no mood to DIY, our Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 is redscale-ready – just load it up and shoot! (Please note that stock availability may vary depending on your region.)

Here, we illustrate the various effects that you can get from a roll of redscale.

Golden Gleam

Community member @hemera showcases a vintage vibe for these redscale photos. A tad subdued but still warm overall, with yellows and golds lending a nostalgic '60s-'70s feel.

We can almost feel the heat of the sun in these photos by @schlogoat. Here, the yellows and golds are striking (particularly in the first photo), browns are deeper, while reds peek through.

Art Angle

Redscale reveals its elegant side in this set by @amsiglela_yallehei, taken with the Lomography Redscale XR film. The prominence of black in these photos makes the honey tones and mellow golds pop lightly. Spot the little bee in one of the photos?

Dark and Moody

Redscale softens up in these moody, low-contrast images by @lu1kj. Gentle reds, ashy blacks, and a slightly mossy overlay play well together for a mysterious aesthetic.
