A Hint of Red


I had hoped for something like this when I put the film inside my camera. But when the results came in, boy was I glad how they turned out!

I specifically bought the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 film because I had some knowledge of how redscale works. When you expose the film for a short amount of time, you will most likely get dark reds. But when exposing a 400 iso film, which is what this redscale really is, at 50 ISO, I knew I would get almost real life colors with just a hint of red.

This film, according to the film canister, is a 400 ISO film. What makes the result so special is that they vary according to the amount of exposure time you give them. That’s why it says from 50-200. My purpose was to get a vintage-like feel from the pictures. So I knew that setting the iso to 50 would be my best bet. And with that said, I think that photos can talk for themselves.

I can’t talk for the other ISO settings, as for I haven’t tried them, but I’m so pleased with the results at 50 ISO, that I’m pretty sure it’ll take a long while until I get around to trying out the other settings. But just know that this is a very versatile film for whatever kinds of redscale colors you’re looking for!
