Take any films and try soaking them in any solution you can get such as coke, detergent, lime juice etc etc.
and see the results. Different type of solution give different effects and it is unpredictable. so the fun starts from here where you can get unpredictable pictures with more colours. The longer you soaked the film, the more it will be destroyed. Seen above are some of sample pictures I did myself. I used coke, salt water and detergent. the soaking activity can be done before or after you shoot the film :)
Throwing chemicals, fire, and scratching emulsion are just a few ways of experimenting with film. But there's another process that completely destroys it (or, if you're lucky, creates something amazing), that is as spastic as a drunken man staggering his way home after a night at the pub - literally.
And it all comes down to darkness.
Fancy yourself a very adventurous lomographer? Well, better prepare those acids, bleaches, fire, and almost everything you could think of applying on your emulsions and take on these extreme film destroying tips! Remember to be careful, though!
My boyfriend Scott and I took our cameras on a road trip to the beautiful Coronado Beach in San Diego, California at the very end of May to catch beach combers, surfers, and beautiful sunsets on glorious film.

MONO NO AWARE captures the ephemeral nature of being through film cinematography. MONO NO AWARE is able to freeze the transitory moments in life and transform it into a beautiful extension of the soul.
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!
This month, Lomography heralds beauty in film with our pop-up shops, workshops and series of photo challenges at heartlands – a curriculum designed to tease out the charm in people, places, and things.
