If you’re going to try out a new film or a new camera, you usually do one or the other. This reduces your chance of failure, and gives you the opportunity to assess the film or camera properly (without too many new variables). However, on this occasion I decided to throw myself in at the deep end. A new film (Lomography Redscale) and a new camera, the Lomography Konstructor! The Konstructor is a DIY kit camera – lots of plastic bits you put together yourself.
…well, just for fun, really.
A technique I’ve recently stumbled across on Lomography’s tutorial site shows us how to expose both sides of a roll of film, giving results that are half normal, half redscale. The results are trippy and gorgeous, and the best results have been achieved by Lomo user Hodachrome.
