Alas, far too much time has passed since my last post here! Much has happened in the meantime, including a holiday and a house move, but I’d like to start back up by belatedly sharing the results from my first roll of Revolog film.
Revolog are an Austrian-based company who make special-effect 35mm films. Their range includes various textures, scratches, and light effects. I was most interested in the colour-shifting films (600nm, 460nm, and Kolor), so I picked up the mixed pack. I don’t know exactly how they achieve this witchcraft, though unofficial consensus seems to be that the rolls are pre-exposed.
The first roll I shot was the 600nm, which is advertised to give either a red or blue cast depending on developing. The packaging suggest that underexposure will result in a stronger effect than overexposure, so I intentionally underexposed my shots — I’ve found I like strong colour-shifting results in other films, so didn’t want to risk negating the effect! I was very pleased with the results of my first roll. You can see the full set here.
Interestingly, not long after I ordered these, Lomography brought out their own pre-coloured film, ‘Sunset Strip’, which looks like it has a similar effect in blue/orange. I’ve just turned in my first roll of this film for development, so will be curious to see how they compare.
