    I say lomographic redscale film. Or possibly a black and white negative printed onto colour paper, sometimes it will give the same sepia like tone.

    Well,of course the first thing that comes in your mind is : lomography redscale film.

    In the other hand, I could be a skillful manipulation of the scann, playing with curves, and so on !!! Shame, shame on me ! Hey hey I'm kidding !

    Maybe a bit flash on it, not sure...

    redscale film, no flash just other room lighting,

  39. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    Redscale of course, indoors, no flash and low light conditions (look at the "noise" of the texture...), that's how the redscale turns in brown/gold colors. And no flash, because it would be strongly reflected on the statue.

    let me jump on your bandwagon with a vote for redscale.
    I really have no clue, but it's worth trying a comment for a piggie right??

  56. eyecon
    eyecon ·

    Haha, just to say something different :)
    There could be many ways to create a pic like this. Redscale might be one way and it´s probably right but if you have a look to the /filmshop website there are also a lot of pics that have such a golden shine. These pics are crossprocessed. If the lighting is right and maybe you use an orange filter or a foil, I bet you can get the same results.
    I bet in the end it´s redscale but I want to swim against the stream even if I´m not earning a piggie :)

    My opinion:

    - Vicuna is right about the light. No flash, if there was a flash, the reflects wouldn't be so soft. So it's a long exposure.
    - The white reflects I mentioned previously tell us it cannot be redscale. The orange tint is given by the long exposure and the low light (maybe just candles). And maybe it is a negative film that adds to the orange tint.
    - The fine grain, despite the long exposure could be a proof that it's a low sensitivity film. 200 asa or less.

    I'm not sure of what I'm saying here.
    It's just my opinion.

    Lomo on.
