A new kind of redscale : Red Luna
Exa 1B on Fujifilm Superia 400
One of our contributors Pia has something new and interesting to share with us!
I’ve made my own redscale film out of a Fujifilm Superia ISO 400 and processed it in b&w. The pictures where taken with an old GDR camera, the Exa 1b, which belongs to a friend of mine. She has loads and loads of cameras from flea markets and asked me to try out some of them for her. So when I went swimming, I took some cameras with me and tried them out. The Exa was one of them and had the best results. My favorite model is my cat, the wonderful Luna, so she had to play along for the rest of the roll. I think, that it’s really exciting, that the red shadowy color varies from picture to picture. I really like that.—-Pia
Pia told us that she got her negatives scanned in a professional photo lab in color to capture the hues on her flipped negative. (FYI: That is what you do when making redscale film, just in case you don’t know how to, check out our homemade redscale film tutorial here.) If you like your redscale to turn out more subdued with softer tones, developing them in B&W may be just the way to do it!!
