Many Lomographers love ‘film-swap’, a sort of 'Lomographic discipline' involving two or more Lomographers who perform double exposures to cross the oceans. But perhaps none of you have ever made a ‘double’ traveling back in time. Read on to find out how it is possible.
Almost everybody has some old black and white family photos at home, lost in a trunk or in a dusty attic, showing your parents or even your grandparents when they were young. Well, it’s time to take them out! I picked some of these pictures and I used them for this unusual tipster.
The steps are simple:
- Load a color film in your camera (I used a Kodak Color Plus 200 film loaded into a Nikon F70)
- Take the entire film shooting the black and white pictures.
- Rewind the film.
- Reshoot. (I chose nature as subjects for this phase).
Here’s what happened:
As you would expect from lomographies, the results are very striking and unpredictable. Now just have fun experimenting with other combinations and think of ways to bring life and color to old black and white photos!
