Carnival Portraits in 120

I brought along my trusty Rolleiflex 3.5 and several rolls of Lomography 120 film to the Notting Hill Carnival recently and just picked the scans up from the friendly Lomography store in London’s Carnaby Street. I had been trying out their Red Scale 120 films. This is a 200 ISO rated film which has been reverse wound onto the spool. Exposing it at 200 will result in a red and orange tint, whilst giving it more exposure (rating it from 50 to 100 ISO) will result in green or blue tints, depending on the quality of light. It’s a hit and miss result, so there’s no hard and fast rule about your exposure. I  guess that it the charm about shooting ‘Lomo’ style pictures. You just don’t know what you are going to get. I like the organic quality of film, the grain and the cross-processed look, which is done chemically rather than through Apps or digital filters.
