If you love redscale but find it tough to make your own or wait for your next LSI shipment then try this quick and easy way to get redscale.
So sometimes I really am clueless and miss the most simple ideas for years and years. This trick is so easy I feel like an idiot only having just realized it. So I like to put 35mm in my diana and I don’t always feel like putting a 35mm adaptor in. I also like to make my own redscale. Nothing against the lomo redscale which is awesome but when you make your own you can choose from so many different options. You can redscale slide or 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 speed, whatever you want.
Problem is that it is kind of tricky to put the film in a lightproof bag, with scissors and tape and to do the flip and tape in the bag without being able to see what you are doing. Well problem solved. I now just take the 35mm film in canister, place it upside down in the back of Diana, pull the lead and tape the film to the spool on the other side. I place the Diana back (with black electrical tape over the red dot on the back of course) onto the camera and then just shoot away. So everything works just how it would if you had the film canister in “the right way”.
