Sorry, folks: No post-processing here.
This is Rollei Redbird film, a “redscale” film that is either rolled backward in the canister or manufactured backwards and then rolled, depending on how various sources write up their descriptions. In any case, while in normal color films the red layer is the bottom layer, with Redbird the red layer is on top. This results in — well, a whole lotta red.
Since the intensity of the red varies depending on your shutter speed, it’s a tricky little film; you might as well throw ol’ Sunny 16 out the window. The slower the shutter, the redder the result; faster speeds allow for more variations in reds, yellows and blues.
This one was taken on an October morning, with the sun breaking through the fog — i.e. a slower shutter speed. (I’ll have more coming up, when I’ve finished picking through ’em; almost all were shot in low light, so some are almost indecipherable. Hm.)
It’s also really grainy.
