Hot waterbath for my film rolls

Film-rolls like to swim and bath before they will get exposed. put some soda into the bath and some nice color-effects will cover your photos!

I ♥ color-bubbles!!!

After reading some tipster about preparing filmrolls, I was interested in doing it myself. while I wanted to collect all the experience in modification of film rolls, I started slowly in the very beginning. The first filmroll I just droped in a hot waterbath and let it there for about 20min. I pulled out the complete film and dried it then on the heater for a night. The results are not so spectacular as I hoped – just a light blue fog covered the motives on the photos.

After seeing the light results I wanted to go further, so I cocked the next roll in soda-water. that time I was not patient at all, so I dried the wet, pulled-out film over the heater and wiped off the water with some paper towel before to speed up the drying-process.

Those results were more spectacular: color-bubbles and blue stripes! Probably the hot water is entering the filmroll in the center, so the very first photos are not so affected as the later once. in the beginning you clearly see the motives on the picture, while later on the motives and the effects are recognisable both in the very end of the roll the trace of modification strikes and the motive are just slightly visible.

here some results in time order:

Once again I’ve started the “cook-the-film-in-boiling-soda-water-experiment”

I was so impressed what kind of modifications you are able to do with your unexposed film-rolls and the last soda-experiment gave such nice results, that I had to do it again.

BUT this time I tried to pimp a slide-film instead of a normal negative-film and did the x-pro afterwords ; ]

I’ve noticed it while bathing the film that the effects will be more strong, cause of the out coming chemicals which were stronger then with the negative-film. The same thing was, that the first exposures were not so effective as the last once (good to know in advance)

Here are some results out of the album “burning houses”:

Go and have a try – I won’t stop – I definitely will go further and start some new experiments ;D
WHAT ABOUT YOU???

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    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.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.

    Bite-Size Fiction: The Memory Pill

    Someday, getting rid of unwanted memories will be as easy as popping a pill and waiting a few hours for the desired effect to kick in. Literally a bitter pill to swallow (you'd think that with all the advancements in science then, they would've already made, say, fruit-flavored ones like the vitamins you loved as a kid), sure, but effective nonetheless.

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
