Freddie Mercury was best known as the frontman and lyricist of the British rock band Queen. He was well-known and loved for his flamboyant yet powerful presence on stage, in addition to his impeccable four-octave range.
Outside the stage, he is equally loved — although, his persona is much more different. In contrast to the performer, Mercury is actually very shy and gentle and reserved.
But that is not to say that he doesn’t have his mischievous moments though, as proven by this photo. Just look at that unmistakable glint in his eye!

September is almost here and we are determined to make the most of the summer while it hasn't ended. This coming month we have two LC-A+ workshops, a Sprocket Rocket workshop at the London Analogue Festival,and a Make your Own Camera Obscura Workshop.
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! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
