Redscale


Redscale photographs are made by loading a film through the camera backwards, so that the layers are exposed in reverse order, creating red-tinged images. The extent of the red tone varies throughout the images, depending on exposure and lighting.

When shooting with redscale, I treat it as black and white film; searching for visually strong shapes and striking buildings to complement the effect of the redscale which makes the image monochrome-like.

These photographs were all shot on 400 film at ISO 100, with a Pentax K1000 Asahi.
