So whilst we were at the Carters Steam Fair two weeks ago and about to go, we were asked to pair up as we were about to take part in a 5 minute challenge. I paired up with Becky and we were given an Action Sampler, loaded with Redscale film.
For those that don't know, Redscale film is normal film but loaded the other way round in the canister. When you normally shoot film, you shoot on the glossy side, in the Redscale film, its the other side...something I learnt only a few weeks ago, anyway back to our experiment.
So we had 5 minutes to go round the fair, run, walk, do whatever we needed to shoot 36 photos. So Becky and I just shot randomly, hoping for the best really. Back we went after 5 minutes, the film was rewinded back, just enough that the last bit didn't go back into the canister. The film then went into one of these....
The Fisheye 2! So off we went again with 5 minutes on our clocks!
Now some turned out ok, some not, here some of the results: -
