Half Redscale


This is a weird tipster but if you guys want to have an essence of half of your film is redscaled and half is not, then you should better try this!

It’s fun to have this kind of picture. Half of the frame rests in redscale and half of it rests in a completely, colorful picture. I tried doing this over a negative film and the results are weird and trippy. What you need and what you have to do? It’s easy:

  • Lomo LC-A
  • Colorsplash Flash Orange Filter
  • 35mm negative film (or try out a slide film, if you want!)

What you need to do:

  1. Place the orange filter inside your Lomo LCA
  2. Make sure the filter freely moves inside and is not placed in a steady position
  3. Load film
  4. Take pictures

Now, my original plan was to stick the orange filter inside, making it sure it is immovable. But I forgot taping it and was excited to shoot pictures away. The result was more like trippy. It came to my senses that now, it is obviously opposite. What was the original colors of the picture has now accidentally looked like a light leak and most of the image is somehow orange and red.

Check out the photos and try this with yourself! You can experiment with other colors, if you want!

    No filter is the same as redscale. Redscale reacts differently depending on how much exposure the film gets. Little exposure - red. More exposure, you start getting some green and even some yellow in the picture. Even more exposure and it starts turning yellow and you might even get some bluish parts.
