Eerie I

When we visited Berlin in March, I made a visit to the Lomography shop over there. I can’t decide whether I like it or not. On one hand, it is overpriced, hyped, a concept; on the other hand, it is analogue photography, and even if it is overpriced and whatnot; if it attracts new customers to old-fashioned analogue photography, I can’t really complain.

Anyway, I didn’t want to buy any of their overpriced cameras, but I didn’t want to leave empty-handed either, so I bought a 3-pack of some of their colour negative film (120 format). Actually not too expensive, about 11 Euros for 3 rolls.

Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day came along and after shooting a roll of B&W film, I decided to give this stuff a try. Seems it is redscale film (colour negative film wound on the spool the wrong way around, so it ends up exposed through the back side, meaning that the colour filters present in the film are not used the way they would normally be, resulting in a lot of red).

I actually quite like the effect.

This is scanned from a print, not from the negative.

I will post more of those, so if you don’t like ’em, stay away for a week or two. 😉

    Interesting… thank you for the education on redscale film… I had never heard or known of it before… And I kinda like the effect and look too… So, I guess I won’t be dreading the next week or two 🙂

    This is wonderful, feels goo, mood perfect fit just right in my Serene Mind series and you even didn’t use the gel 🙂
