The truth is that I wasn’t convinced at all to use a redscale film, but if you don’t try it you’ll never know if you’ll like it. In this case I didn’t like it, I LOVED IT!
It was the first time I used a redscale film. Until now, I had used negative films and a pair of slide films (x-pro). My surprise came when I opened the roll. Was the negative upside down? I was so confused because even the other two rolls were like the other one. I didn’t know: Was it normal? or Was the package defective? Finally, I chose the first one and I uploaded my LC-A + with the film.
A few days later, having shot about 5 photos, I read a review of cohetesnaranjas. It explains why the negative comes on these orange and red tones. The trick is to reverse the negative and expose the film inverted. After reading the article I was more relaxed.
Well, here I show you some photos of my first redscale film. I changed the ISO of the LC-A (100 and 200 every time). That is why some of the photos came in orange tones and, the others, in red tones.
As I said, I liked very much the combination of the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 and LC-A +. So I ordered another pack of this redscale film from Lomography!
