Primarily based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Evan Purney is a photographer and content material creator who enjoys experimenting with photographic movie to supply extraordinary outcomes.
As seen in a TikTok video that racked up 1.2 million views, Purney first shot a roll of movie by means of the incorrect aspect the place the emulsion is uncovered by means of the bottom of the movie to attain a crimson scale background.

The method is named “expose each side” (ESB) and it combines double publicity with crimson scale pictures.
Purney used a Ricoh KR5 Tremendous 2 with an SMC Pentax-FA f2.8 50mm macro lens. For the movie, he selected a Fuji Superia Xtra 400 for its vivid blues and greens which he thought would distinction the “redscale” impact effectively.
“Truthfully, the unpredictability of movie is why I like it. The quantity you possibly can experiment with the method at each step simply fascinates me,” Purney tells PetaPixel. “ESB is a extremely neat course of which has been round ceaselessly however I haven’t seen lots of people utilizing it since this photographic movie revival.”
It took two makes an attempt and a few experimentation with publicity instances for Purney to get the outcomes he needed.
“I used to be stoked with the outcomes! I attempted it as soon as earlier than however didn’t discover the impact pronounced sufficient. This time I made some changes to publicity instances and was actually completely satisfied to see the advance,” he says.
“I shot the redscale aspect at about 125 ISO (overexposed) and the common aspect at about 800 ISO (underexposed). Usually with double exposures, you wanna underexpose by somewhat bit on one or each exposures, however when capturing ‘redscale’ (by means of the incorrect aspect) you normally would overexpose by fairly a bit (2-3 stops), so I deducted like 0.5 from that. Primarily based on my first try adjusted to those values, but it surely’s undoubtedly one thing to experiment with.”
Purney is fascinated by the infinite prospects of movie pictures and goals to set himself other than different photographers by means of his use of experimental methods and sensible results. In one other TikTok video, Purney makes use of his outdated Nintendo DSI which has a 0.3-megapixel digital camera on to shoot a set of pictures.
