lapland 2013 part VII.

for this last post dedicated to our hiking trip in Northern Lapland I have finally put together a selection of my favourite photographs taken with my Hasselblad 500 C/M: some of them were taken from the top of Saana mountain, some others in Mallan Luonnopuisto and some more are views of Kilpisjärvi lake - the first and the last are a courtesy of Jacopo. I decided to share these shots separately as the red tones make them so different from the ones I posted previously.
photographs from Lapland part VII:
Hasselblad 500 C/M - Lomography Redscale XR 50-200
that was my first time shooting with Lomography Redscale film and I have to say the results are quite incredible: the reds are so intense that Lapland looks like Mars. this may be because I had to expose the roll at iso 200 for every single shot - as it was too dark to expose it at a lower iso. that surreal look though makes these red photographs decisively unique - don't you think?
thank you for following my posts about Lapland over the past couple of weeks - here is my surprise gift for you: I have prepared a digital booklet with a large selection of photographs - most of which I have not yet shared online. download Ruska and let me know what you think about it! ♥

P.S. I am also very happy to finally be able to reveal that I was interviewed by Lomography for the Lomo Amigo section of their international magazine: you can read the interview here.

  1. oh my, this is so different from the ruska photos you've shared before. i used a lomography redscale once but the result wasn't that rich and intense. it was somehow "flat", clearly i did something wrong.

    you booklet is lovely ♥

  3. I'm risking to be like a boy in a story 'A wolf and a shepherd boy', that after repeating 'wonderful' so many times, it's not gonna sound that honest at the end. But it is not superficial, I do mean it and each of ur posts are really special. Apart from being special visually it recalls some strong, basic, yet maternal relation between earth and a human. Just great,-) xx

  4. The one with the board walk is great, with the high contrast. Quite bizarre colours, indeed they seem from Mars. And that's what makes them interesting, especially next to your other Lapand photos.

  8. These pictures are so cool! Undoubtedly the reddish effect gives them a special touch :-)
    I have thought of a way to take pictures with this kind of tone, but in a cheaper way, because the lenses are a bit expensive, and I found these inspiring photos! thanks again for this Polly!
