You've got pictures that you sorted out, but you don't have the heart to throw them away? Then here comes a dead right tipster for you!
On almost every film you can find pictures you don’t like that much or that simply weren’t sucessful. But giving them in the trash is still hard.
Accidently some pictures had scratches on the surface and I got the idea to be a little creative. So I added some further scratch drawings with the cutter knife.
I liked my first attempt. Now the supposed to be lost pictures could get a new sense and clarity.
There are millions of possibilities of what to do with them now.
Take care that you use a solid underlay that can be damaged while scratching and that you don’t scratch too deep otherwise your picture will fall into pieces.
Now your creativity has no limits: frame them, use them for invitations or give them away as cards for your friends. Leave little messages throughout your city and express what you feel!
Every lomographer is aware of the Ten Golden Rules, the very essence of our “Don't Think, Just Shoot” philosophy. This set of guidelines tells us to throw away our inhibitions as photogarphers and have fun while taking pictures. Many of us take these rules by heart, but maybe not all of us take them as seriously as our community member pedrosattin, who has made these rules the focus of his personal project.

Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!
Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
