I took my camera out to test a roll of the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 film, and what better place to go to in Kuwait than Souq Almubarkeya? Now the cool thing about this film is that it has a flexible ISO. You can choose to work with a low setting (i.e. 50ISO) and you’ll get a cool faded green/blue tones. If you feel a bit adventurous, set your camera to an ISO of 200 and you’ll get deep orange/red tones. Seeing that most of the pictures in this post were taken indoors, I had to work with an ISO of 200, and I’m glad I did! I love the vibrant colors! Some of the shots were taken with a low ISO. You can tell them apart from the different color tones. The only problem I had with this film is scanning. My scanner didn’t have a pre-set for this type of film, so I had to manually adjust the settings to get a good scan. (If you have any tips on this issue, please let us know!)
If you have tried this film before, link us to your pictures. We would love to see them!
