Murder She Wrote… But Film Just Won’t Die!

As an avid follower of our Film/Lab/Rats episodes, by now you know that our relationship with film is risky and experimental. We’ve chewed it, set it on fire, rubbed various chemicals in it … and it just keeps surprising us with distorted, artsy-fartsy results. Film just won’t quit, yes, and we won’t quit either. We’ll keep on doing whatever it takes to see how much it can take and what effects it can make!

The Do or Die Endurance Test

Smash! Stomp! Whack! Ouch … what a cruel, cruel thing to do with such a delicate item. But if you’re looking for cool, distorted effects, do it like we did it – we took some pictures, developed the film, and hammered the negative with a camera.

Buried Alive

Tie it up and then bury it deep into the ground. Forget about it in 4 weeks, and what do you get? Follow the step-by-step instructions to this soily experiment!

Drug Cocktail Overdose

A mixture of substances and a roll of film. Sounds pretty lethal, and it is – imagine your images washed and blotched with strange drips and splotches. Are you ready? Click the link below for the details!

Last Cut: “AGFA APX 400” boxes – deadstock but not dead

Discontinued in 2005, Agfa APX 400 B&W film has long been a firm favourite amongst Lomographers with a penchant for film noir. Our Deadstock hunters found this classic emulsion masquerading in Rollei Retro 400 clothing and felt compelled to bring it back into the light. Renowned for its excellent tonality and super-smooth grain – it is ideal for enlargements. Details are sharp, with an even contrast and most distinctively you will notice that lucid APX atmosphere. With a speed of ISO 400, you can be sure of superior quality no matter the light condition. This sought-after emulsion is hand-numbered and packed in a Lomography box specially designed to pay tribute to this memorable moment – your last chance to experience this B&W Agfa classic. Only 2,000 boxes of this vintage emulsion are available. Get your stash before it‘s too late!

    I love the 404 guru's mantras... so here is the link that links:

    shop.lomography.com/labrats/

    Aum Asato mā sad gamaya
    Tamaso mā jyotir gamaya
    Mṛtyormā amṛtam gamaya
    Aum śānti śānti śāntiḥ

    From ignorance, lead me to truth;
    From darkness, lead me to light;
    From death, lead me to immortality
    Aum peace, peace, peace

    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.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Sirius Space Mission to the Third Planet (A Tribute to Peter Mitchell)

    Imagine an alien space mission from a planet of the Sirius Star System to an abandoned industrial zone of Como, a city situated in the North of Italy. The alien photographer named sirio174, used a powerful futuristic camera, called Lomo Lubitel 166U loaded with a Kodak Portra film roll. Yes, no digital, because the future is...analogue! During his journey, he learned the most common language of our planet -- English -- and he wrote this article for us. Read more after the jump!

    Nishe: Exploring Emotions Through Photography

    There's a certain air of sadness in Nishe's portraits. More often than not, the faces of her subjects are either partially or completely hidden. Sad, yes, but undeniably beautiful. Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.
