“You’ll need: two 120 film spools, tape, scissors, two rolls of 35mm film. A changing bag isn’t big enough so use a pitch black dark room. Tape the beginning of both rolls of 35mm film on the first 120 film spool and place into the winding part of the Holga. Go into the dark room and completely unwind all the film out of the 35mm cassettes and cut it at the end. Make sure you keep the beginning of the films in the winding part of the camera as it can get messy. Find the end of the 35mm films and stick to the second 120 film spool. Wind all the film onto the second 120 film spool and place in the left film chamber. Make sure the film counter (red window) part on the back of the Holga is completely covered. All 35mm Holga rules apply e.g.: taping up the Holga and 30 to 35 clicks for each frame (or one and a half turn of the winder). When you’re the film, go back to the dark room and you’ll need: two plastic film cases and silver foil. Open the back of the Holga and un-tape the 35mm film from the 120film spools. Rollup each film and place into separate film cases and cover the film cases with silver foil so no light can destroy your shots. Go to your lab and explain that the film is loose in the cases and tell them how to process it (negative or transparency). Either have them printed on a contact sheet or scanned the negative yourself. Good Luck!!!”

Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe!
