Exposing the film sprockets is one of the best ways to add a funky touch to your photos. However, this black and white landscape snapshot by mafiosa proves that these sprockets can give an elegant and classy feel, too!
This stark black and white image from mafiosa blends mystery and classic noir film effect in one sprocket-filled analogue snap. It can easily pass up for an opening scene in an independent film reminiscent of classic-era movies. Mafiosa took this photo using a *Lomography Sprocket Rocket* loaded with Ilford XP2 film. You can see more photos from mafiosa in this album.
Congratulations to mafiosa for winning Photo of the Day!

However, former freelance photographer Michael Ciavolino was already able to create one of the earliest examples of this technique back in the early '60s in his groundbreaking photograph called "Boat Ride, Rye Beach." Find out the fascinating story behind this photo, as well as how and why he did it in this exclusive Lomography feature!
