San Mateo Coast, Redscale

I loaded Kodak Portra 400 220 film (no paper backing) in my Fuji GSW 690III backwards so the back of the film was facing the lens for redscale. Medium and large format film bases are thicker than 35mm and you have to compensate even more, so I metered this 400 ISO film at 25 ISO. Even so, many of the exposures are thin.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
