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.

Rocking an ingenious use of multiple exposure and color gels, aliceinchains definitely gave this rather straightforward portrait a creative and psychedelic twist! Congratulations for winning our 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!
This psychedelic display of colors is calling us to pack our bags and move into this magical rainbow city! Is the pot of gold here, too? Kidding! Congratulations alcastan for having our Photo of the Day!
Sometimes, experiments and curiosity yield the best results. This is what photographer Cody Thomas discovered when he tried out black and white film photography with his Holga camera. See more of his black and white photos after the jump.
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.
Flipping her already cleverly composed and framed photograph, sweetyyydreams was able to morph this rather straightforward landscape shot into a dreamy one. Congratulations sweetyyydreams for having our Photo of the Day!
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.
