This photograph from Ward’s Island was created with long-expired “red scale” colour negative film. Red scale film is film that is reversed in the roll, so you are shooting through the orange film base, resulting in some interesting tonality. I had no idea if the film was still usable, I didn’t even know the original speed of the film (before accounting for the red effect on exposure). I was very happy to see how it turned out.

Holy crap! That is frigging gorgeous! You know my passion for expired film… I think I’ll try reverse-rolling a few old rolls.

Thanks! Reverse rolling is easy in 35mm, I haven’t tried it in 120 (the roll came already redscalled this way) but I am going to try a DIY 120 redscale roll this week and see if I can can it.
