Forgotten all about it…..
Just when the autumn went from beautiful and enjoyable, into dark, gloomy and cold, I found a little camera in my closet that I almost had forgot I had. I have taken a couple of rolls with it but was not at all satisfied with the results. Well, in this little La Sardina, i found an almost finished roll of Lomography RedscaleXR 50-200. So, I went out and photographed the images that was left, just a couple.
I developed the film in C41, expecting nothing… So I was pleasantly surprised when the film was dry. Almost every image was photographed in this crazy Lomo style, with double- or multi exposures. Because I currently am very interested in impressionistic images, I was very pleased with the results. And this kind of motifs suited this little camera very well too.
So, what was my lesson from this? You can not have too many cameras!! 😀
Jag kan titta hur länge som helst på dessa…
Det är en resa i ett inre landskap, där kaos möter ordning och där oro möter lugn…
En explosion av känsloyttringar som jag bara älskar.
Och jag njuter verkligen av dessa alster!
Tusen tack Malin!
Du sätter ord på min känsla för dem, jag hittade inte orden själv. Fantastiskt att inte bara kaoset framträder.
Mitt ödmjuka tack.
Skönt att få skriva på svenska ibland faktiskt. Inte alla gånger man får fram det man vill “säga” när man kommenterar på engelska, men här känner jag att jag kan skriva både engelska och svenska. 🙂
Tack själv för att du visar dina bilder!
Håller med helt och hållet. Det beror på vad man vill uttrycka. Det är samma för mig med din blogg.
Marie, this is gorgeous!! All of them are wonderful but the fourth is my fav!!
[I still have to use the purple film you sent me, sorry!!! I will do it asap and I will let you know]
Best regards from sunny and warm (18 ºC right now!)
Thanks a lot Jesús! I’m so happy you like them!
Don’t worry about it! I have tried two rolls, but I’m not satisfied with them. But a tips though, do not overexpose it, try to keep it about 400 ISO, possible 200, but not more, they get really ugly if you do.
Looking forward to see your results, and to try it again, myself… 😉
Here it is 2C and raining….And dark….
Grear results!!! I too love the Impressionist style and I always consider this camera or the Diana for it.
Hehe the lomo cameras bring surprisingly nice results most of the time.
Yes, indeed they do! But how can I forget that I had it? Probably because it did’nt deliver what I hoped for in the first place, but this is just great! I have a black and white film, also with crazy shots like this, undeveloped in my fridge…. Maybe I have to develop it soon, now I’m getting curious… 😉
Thanks a lot Grazie!!
I usually underestimate the quality of plastic lens in lomo cameras. I guess it doesn’t really matter. If it’s in the hands of a talented photographer, it works like magic. In the hands of an amateur, god help us.
Thanks a lot! I think it is about curiosity. And of course, some basic nowledge of light and composition, but most of playfulness and curiosity. Maybe we can do that just because the lenses and cameras are made just like they are?
Strange and great, this is what i like 🙂
Thank you very much! 🙂
Redscale and multiple exposures are almost always a great combination. These are wonderful!
Thank you very much!
Yay, these are so cool, Marie! I particularly like the very first and last one!
And I second your statement – you can truly never have too many cameras 😉 Each one has its own unique talent.
Yes, they have, and it is soooo much cooler to do this directly in the camera, instead of doing it in Photoshop from a raw file.
Thank you very much! 🙂

Wonderful stuff Marie, the last image is like a wonderful dream I wish I could dream.
Thank you very much Mike, I’m so glad you like them.
I do, the red tones are wonderful as well as the abstract images.
The redscale film is very well suited to doubles, triples and abstract, and the XR version is great, there is some greenish tones that is sneaking into the image, depending on exposure time. You’ll never know what you get… 😉
Marie, thanks. I am going to give that film a try.. Did you shoot it with the Hasselblad?
Oh no, no way… I used a little metal can from Lomography, called “La Sardina”. It looks just like a sardine can. If you read my intro, you have a link. It is a crappy little camera, but for this kind of images it was perfect!
It is so crappy, I forgot I had it…. 😀
But the film is wonderful!
I must be getting old as I now remember reading you used the lomo camera. Hope your weekend is going great.
Thank you Mike, and the same to you!
