This is my second review of the Rollei Creative Edition Films. This time I am going to share with you my own personal experience of using Rollei Redbird.
My review of this film, the 400 ISO redscale film from the Rollei Creative Edition collection, is going to read very similarly to the review I did a while ago of the Nightbird which you can read here.
I was excited to use this film, and loaded it into my LC-A so that I didn’t waste it in a camera where I could not set the ISO. I used the whole roll back in April/Spring time when it was sunny so that I got the gorgeous orange tones that I had experienced with the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.
Similarly as with the Nightbird, I was initially very very disappointed when I got these films back from the lab. Despite having shot them in bright sun, and having the camera on the right ISO they are once again super grainy, in fact a lot of the shots were so underexposed I couldn’t even scan them in. I am not a photography expert but I can’t understand how a 400 ISO film shot in sunny conditions can lead to things being UNDERexposed!
Anyway, I do kind of like the dark black shapes on the grainy reddish backgrounds, but it is really not the way I intended for the films to come out.
As with the Nightbird, I would like to try it again at some point just to see if I can make any improvement, but for now I would give the film a 6 out of ten, with its only redeeming factor being the brilliant photos I have seen taken by other people online!!!
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
