Blues strike back

April 16, 2012

After a short trip in a strange orange world, let’s get back to the real world. Small but fun waves at Mystery point, la source and Anka point. Winter surfing on the rocks literally.

Surfer mirage is a double exposure, I shot the ruins of the Almadraba first and then i turned to the ocean and shot the spot.

Taghazout redscale

March 22, 2012

A warmed stroll from Anchor Point to Taghazout heights.

In redscale photography the film is loaded backwards. The light has to pierce through the back of the film (the red layer), which is now on top.  The blue layer, consequently in the bottom, is left unexposed. The result is a dramatic color shift, with warm red, orange and yellow tints, depending on the exposure.

An under exposed redscale film will be dark with intense red and orange tones, while an over exposed one will be golden, with sparkling orange and yellow tones (sometimes you can also get greens and blues, but you will need a lot of light in order to pierce the thick filter). But there’s also a trick to find a correct exposure: always over expose it, from 1 to 3 stops!
