Kuala Selangor

Finally got my Lomography Redscale film developed & scanned. Took me forever to do it, (in reality I was so lazy I had to lazily request a friend of mine to send it to our local lab). A lazy procrastinator I am.

It was months back that we planned a short family getaway. After a long winded discussion with my sister, we decided to visit Kuala Selangor since its just a couple of hours away from our ever-buzzing city.

Kuala Selangor Nature Park is a place to visit around here. Beautiful park with lots of flora and fauna. Watch out for many different type of monkeys.

I shot Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 on Nikon FE2. I rate it at 50 ISO and knowing that redscale film is very experimetal, I shot it with my finger crossed. I'm not quite sure why, even when shot with similar lighting, the tone and colors differs greatly.

The red-ish tint on some of the pictures are so much more prominent on some pictures (like the one above) and on certain pictures, the natural tone comes through so much more. I'm not sure what variable differs in most cases as most of the phots are shot on a bright sunny day.

I think when shot in bright open sky, the natural color comes out better. When there's a slight cast, the warmer tones so much more prominent.

When visiting fishing village, one must shoot at least a picture of a fish.

In a nutshell, this is not the film I will be shooting often even though I like how it looks. The inconsistency is surprisingly pleasant, but not knowing how to predict the outcome is somewhat frustrating. Let's hope I no longer procrastinate in the future, and the film in my bag get processed soon.
