You've heard that you can develop your film rolls with natural ingredients, but have you tried it? Well, many people at Lomography's booth in photokina 2012 got the chance to work with some caffeine-loaded cocktails to develop negatives. Check out this fun workshop after the jump!
Our Doctor lab station the lomography analogue circus was always full and a magical spirit definitely hit the booth. But with a crowded and noisy booth, the workshops still went on. It was fully booked and everybody enjoyed it!
Want to see more? Well, this is all we could get for now, but stay tuned to the magazine for the latest and greatest from Photokina 2012.

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
If you've ever used the Lomo'Instant camera, you know that the Fujifilm Instax Mini film ensures amazing and sharp results with vivid colors and natural skin tones. And although we love it the way it is, we also love to experiment. This time we ventured out with monochrome on our minds and got some pretty crazy results — check it out!
