Red Scale Negative Film

Tuesday, January 27, 2009
Ever shot a roll of sepia film? Ever marveled at the way that it reveals your image in smooth monotones with a silky color wash on the top? Here’s a hyper-saturated version of that idea – with reds and oranges defining your key colors and a slightly random filtration effect that leaves some areas a little natural and some redder than hell. Things are a bit unpredictable, a little bit Yellow Submarine, a little bit red in the cheeks, and wholly unlike anything any other analog images that your camera can chew up and spit out.

For this case you can try the Lomography RedScale Negative 100 or you can try the tips how to make red scale negative film in this article :)

Lomography RedScale Negative 100

The world’s first and only pre-loaded and ready-to-shoot RedScale film will paint your image with super-intense red, orange, and yellow tones. Easy development at any regular 35mm lab! (get this film)

How To Make Red Scale Negative Film by yourself

you need : old 35mm film catridge, new 35mm film, a pair of scissors, and some clear tape.

step 1:prepare old film catridge/the empty spool film but there is still a little film(left) and the new film (right)

step 2:cut off the leader of the new film

step 3:tape the two rolls together, but with opposite sides of film facing up

step 4:roll the film into the other (the old film catridge) spool. Using your scissors might be a good way to do this. And make sure to do it in complete darkness.

step 5:pull the spools apart a bit, so the film isn't stuck inside. Cut it off close to the now-empty spool, being careful to leave just enough so you can use this one as your empty spool next time. Put it in an empty film canister and label it, then put it somewhere you can find it next time.

step 6:cut a new leader into your new roll of redscale film, and ta daa! Now you have a redscale film!!yippieee \(^-^)/

just for info:one thing to keep in mind is that you might want to overexpose everything by one stop. Other than that, there's nothing different about shooting it. When you take it in to get developed, make sure to tell them about the tape, so it doesn't gum up their machines. Another thing to think about is that different kinds of film and different lighting conditions will yield somewhat different results, ranging from a very much maroon tint to a strong yellow.

Untuk dapat menghasilkan photo seperti contoh gambar diatas kamu dapat mencoba Lomography RedScale Negatif 100 yang bisa dibeli di lomography film shop atau kamu juga bisa membuatnya sendiri dirumah :) dengan langkah-langkah sbb:

langkah 1:siapkan selongsong film 35mm bekas yang masih ada sedikit filmnya(kiri) dan film 35mm baru merk apapun(kanan)

langkah 2:gunting lidah film yang baru secara merata

langkah 3:satukan ujung-ujung film yang lama(kiri) dengan yang baru dengan isolasi..posisi emulsi film yang lama dengan yang baru harus berbeda (terbalik)

langkah 4:roll/pindahkan seluruh isi film yang baru ke selongsong yang lama (didalam changing bag yang keadaannya benar-benar gelap)

langkah 5:bila sudah mentok, renggangkan sedikit jarak kedua selongsong lalu gunting tengah film

langkah 6:buat pola lidah baru pada selongsong lama..n tadaaaa red-scale film uda jadi dan siap digunakan :)

sekedar info:untuk memprosesnya sama aja yaitu C41 untuk film colour print negative..kalo ditanya kenapa emulsinya kebalik bilang aja sengaja. karena dalam mesin proses sebenarnya posisi emulsi ga ngaruh toh depan belakang kecelep cairan kimia juga. Setelah itu negatif kamu sebaiknya langsung discan tanpa koreksi warna
