What to do with those film leads or film strips from rolls that didn't turn out well (aka screwed up)? Grab some short strips of film and place them in all sorts of places. Take photos of them ... bearing in mind that this will be the first exposure. I used an old SLR and set the exposure compensation to -1.
Once the 36 exposures were done … I took out the roll of film and reloaded it into my LC-A+. This time … fill up the roll with the 2nd exposure, making sure you compensate the exposure accordingly. Using the LC-A+ you can simply adjust the ISO to a higher value (eg. using ISO200 if the roll of film is ISO100). This way … it won’t over expose the shots.
Feel free to experiment by placing the film strip in all sorts of backgrounds & locations. This will create lots of unexpected results later on. :D
Here are some self portraits that I took using my Lubitel 2 and a roll of expired film. I used old chemicals, an incorrect ratio, and I under fixed the film during development and washed it in boiling hot water. See how it all turned out.
Two days from now, Lempertz will hold a sale of 195 photographic prints. The lineup is as varied as the history of photography itself. An 1856 print by an anonymous photographer is in the same group as a top-valued Joseph Szabo shot. A deceptively simple shot of a flower vase is joined by the complex textures of Lucien Hervé. Take a look at the fascinating mix.

Chloé Vollmer-Lo's photos speak for themselves. Every image, whether it's a portrait or a seemingly simple snapshot of a street alley, tells a story. The Paris-based photographer tested the New Petval Lens 85 recently, and the results, as expected, speak volumes. She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.
