    Okay, I know you’ve mentioned this before but please bear with me. You wind the film on backwards, over expose by 2 stops or so, and just process normally, right? No cross process or anything like that, correct?

    Also, Since the colors are pretty saturated do you stay away from high saturation films? Or just give it a try and hope for the best?

    Do you redscale with print film only or have you done the same with slide film?

    • Yes, process normally in C-41. You don’t have to overexpose by two stops; just a suggestion. But the less you overexpose, the darker the result. If it’s bright out, one stop overexposure can yield nice, warm results.

      I haven’t tried this with slide film (E-6), but it does work.

      As for loading the film, here’s a more detailed explanation: http://fmphotocourses.blogspot.com/2007/07/how-to-make-redscale-film.html

      Of course, if you don’t want to bother with loading your own redscale film, here’s a link to a society that sells preloaded redscale film for about $5 a roll (distributed out of New York). I’ve used this film and it’s very good: http://microsites.lomography.com/redscalefilm/

    • No. I redscaled the film – shot it backwards. Thanks for stopping by.

    • It is. The results aren’t always so great, though.
