So – back to the photography!
I decided to take my most intimidating camera and film that I’d never used before for my Saturday afternoon at the seaside last week. It was a gloriously sunny day and it had felt like forever since I’d taken any photos so what better than a little challenge.
I thought this would be a good film to use as the Lubitel 2 has no light meter and involves me squinting into the sunshine and guessing – this film has an extended exposure range so it should result in photos being a little orange or very orange (redscale film is wound backwards onto the spool so you’re shooting through the backing material, which is an orangey colour, hence the tones).
Turns out they weren’t that orange at all but I don’t know it that’s because of the film or my exposure settings (or possibly the photo lab attempting to correct the colours when thy scanned them to CD). They definitely have a different look to ‘normal’ film though (as you can see from these previous beach shots)…
What happened here? I have no idea!
