They had a vision. They say it’s for today. The die is cast.

Nope, this ain’t Bugarach. Survivalist friends, duck in that jar!

If  the ocean is blue because it reflects the sky, why is the sky blue if the space is dark? Can we still trust colours? Certainly not when shooting with a tungsten film. Under sunlight (warm color temperatures) light conditions, tungsten films will produce a  bold purple or pink tint.

The water is chilly in Portugal, but the surf’s up! Coxos wasn’t firing, but I had perfect sessions in Ribeira d’Ilhas and Arrifana. A boa vida, não e?

Redscale photography needs a lot of light. If you’re using a SLR cam you’ll have an exposure meter plus full access to shutter speed, aperture and ISO controls. You can nearly find an infinity of combinations for the desired exposure. Piece o’ cake.

However, lomo or toy cams often do not provide as much control. My Sprocket Rocket has only two apertures and one fixed shutter speed at 1/100 s (there is also the bulb mode, but no ISO control and no exposure meter at all). That leaves only a few combinations, so it’s harder to find a good exposure… To compensate the lack of ISO control, you can set it up to the biggest aperture (even on a sunny day), and try to include a source of light at an edge of the picture (beware of flare). If it’s still too dark, switch to the bulb mode (don’t forget your pocket tripod!). It’s a bit easier with the Holga because it can open to f/8, versus f/10.8 for the Sprocket Rocket. Just practice!

Back to colour, back to Kuta. Meet mister & miss icecream. ‘Miss icecream’ is a triple exposure. Multi-exposure rocks. Not everybody likes it though. Twisted minds do love it.

The pics in this post were shot in the Holga’s 4.5×6 rectangular format. However, the last one comes from another film, hence the 6×6 regular square format.

Still on the same journey, accross Lantau with my Holga.  This time I loaded an ISO 100 Provia film. According to your film, if you under or over expose it you can achieve different color tones.

Bluescale yes, but … in greens!

Lantau island has a totally different feel from its crowded neighbour Hong-Kong.

Ingredients: a red scale film and a Holga. Set it up on ‘sunny days’ aperture (f/11) to under-expose the clichés and enhance the red tint.
