Saturday night´s fever: Taking pictures with ISO100 redscale negative at night with wide angle lens.

Dont be afraid of the night and go out. Be nervous and be careful, be fast and be creative. Sound easy nah? Yes, it is easy! Get some redscale rolls and watch the neons burning, watch people moving like ghosts. Everything red, everything hot and bloody.

I decided to make my first redscale rolls with wide angle lenses. Here I post the pictures from the two-kilo beast Exacta varex 2a + Flektogon 20mm 4F. I didnt know what manual expositions to set so the results were wild. I was so curious what this combination of camera and film will spit out!

I moved between aperture 4-5,6f / 10-25 sec. The majority of the fields on the roll were exposed relatively fine. I hope I inspired you as darkness inspired me.

    totally cool work tom, i am loving this redscale as well... I am actually gonna submit a rare ass lomolocation tonight with lots of red scale and I have found that what is cool is using red scale in old buildings, inside with a steady hand and very very very long exposures so the shots look like 1900s sepia tone style, super cool to make fake vintage

    Awesome gallery!!

    I was just about to try out redscale night shots, so this gallery certainly boosted my confidence for this project. I have a pinhole cam ready and loaded and will go out later this week for some looooong exposure night shots... Wish me luck ;-)
