Experimenting with old and expired films sometimes renders rather disappointing results but this is not always the case, as evidenced by this vivid and psychedelic Photo of the Day by roman_sekatsky! Congratulations!
Unpredictability is the name of the game when you experiment with different films, especially when you use really old rolls. This is exactly the case with roman_sekatsky’s winning Photo of the Day! A quick look at the photo can make you imagine a wall artistically splashed with paint that contributed that mural-like look. This photo was shot using the *Sprocket Rocket* and expired slide film. You can see more from roman_sekatsky in this album-.
Congratulations to roman_sekatsky for winning Photo of the Day!
This photograph just rendered us speechless with its vibrant colors and shadowy vignettes, not to mention that cute little pooch hiding behind the grass! Congratulations to yonosoydeaqui for having our Photo of the Day!
I've been experimenting with many substances, more or less corrosives, for film manipulation. The images come out so different, that sometimes you can't even recognize them. The pictures in this experiment are a result of mixing bleach and detergent powder.
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.
The lives of artists are sometimes as phenomenally interesting as their work. Admirers even go as far as emulating their creative process, style and philosophies. Photographs of actors, writers and musicians in their element make this idolatry even more vivid.
Sonia pushed the Petzval lens test one step further by shooting with expired black and white film. The results are amazing, and the grain gave life to these beautiful Petzval portraits!

This sunny season is not only for long road trips and days spent at the beach. Invite your friends to a spectacular day at summer fairs and snap fantastic, surreal photographs like this winning Photo of the Day by gakurou!
