    Is this just exposing though the base? If so I did this by accident once with a bulk load NPS160, the film had a cyan green look.
    Didn't print it, just chucked it and re-shot.

    Yeah, it's just exposing through the base. Another LOMO schtick.

    Art, do you think it will singlehandedly save film photography?

    Otherwise, I haven't seent anything impressive made with redscale yet.

    I've seen it "singlehandedly ruin" three commercial photography assignments in a row before I figured out what it was. You need to, especially with E6 Ektachrome, figure out the number of stops of extra exposure you'll need to give the film unless you want only red in the pictures.

    This has been done with motion picture film too, although keep in mind any posts on that subject you'll find on the net are talking about extreme overexposure because they have to shoot through black rem-jet backing instead of the much thinner anti-halo backing used with all still films except Kodachrome.

    Seriously, how did you equate this to Lomo?

    You need to take your meds or stop taking them. You slay me Michel.

    That's nice.

    Wow, you've found me out! Secretly, I am an agent of LSI! I've been hired to market Lomo on on APUG because they will save film! Dang, Michel, you've saved APUG from a horrible lie. You're so brilliant. I see you've dismissed my hundreds of posts on other subjects, other companies and other websites. Amazing forensics and telepathic prowess too, Michel. You are my hero.

    Regards, Art.

    Yep, the Universe is safe again.

    Art, I'm sure you're probably blaming me for the entire "negative vibe" in your posts, but it's just that sometimes you start very similar threads within a certain period of time. That brings out the sarcastic in me.

    As for my Lomo opinions, I'm not entirely convinced that it is a silver bullet, as you sometimes presented it.

    Seriously, you have to start taking meds or stop using them. I never knew my posts were so important to you to track. They're not.

    All I am saying is that Lomo is trying very hard. Obviously selfishly, but what company isn't? They just do it more selfishly than others and consequently better than others. Since I began seeing these Lomo hate-on threads, some years ago, Lomo have grown, fostered film use, introduced more film based equipment, organized more film based events, continue to popularize film to the general public; and their critics have done nothing to further film, even remotely on par.

    I think your posts are equally important to you because you worry about the bad vibe they may suffer from.

    Will it be straight Paxil or Diazepam on the rocks for you?

    I've been doing this with plastic lens cams and an Olympus XA with generally interesting results. The skys get very dramatic (As you'd get if you put a redfilter on a B&W shot).
