The accidental exposure of the backing paper can give any photograph a retro feel. But having it in a cool black and white portrait, just like today's winning Photo of the Day by erikagrendel, will indeed make it a surefire hit.
Audiophiles and analogue lovers will surely love this one. Set aside the vinyl record and the awesome Velvet Underground shirt, you can set your eyes on the exposed paper backing of the 120 film used in this photo by erikagrendel. Now is that a lovely analogue accident or what? This photo was taken using a *Lomo Lubitel 166+* loaded with a *Lomography Lady Grey 400 120* film. You can see more photos from erikagrendel in this album.

Derrick Ong's portraits give off a feeling of nostalgia and old-world charm. The Singapore-based photographer specializes in pre-nuptial and wedding shoots, and loves to capture moments in vibrant hues as well as in black and white.

You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
