Even though I mostly use slide films, one can always find one or another roll of negative film in my fridge as well. Due to its relatively low price, I decided to buy some rolls of the Fuji Pro 400H on my last big film order.
When exposed normally, the film renders blue and green tones particularly well. Yet, what I really like most are the results generated when the film is exposed as a redscale film. However, one has to keep in mind that the film loses some sensitivity when turned over, so that it has to be exposed rather like an ISO 100 or 200 film. Admittedly, turning the film is additional work, which is omitted when one directly buys the Lomography Redscale film film, but as the latter is available nowhere in Switzerland and one does not want to pay $15 shipping charges for a simple film order, it is worth the trouble.
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.

Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
