I made this video tutorial to show how I scan cross processed film. When I first started scanning my own film it took me a long time to get results I was happy with, particularly from cross processed film. This tutorial should give you all the information you need to get good results without months of trial and error.
Scanning your own film is great because it saves you money and gives you more control over the finished product, however scanning cross processed film can be difficult. No film scanners are calibrated for a negative image on the transparent base of slide film, so results can be unpredictable and getting results you are happy with can be difficult.
This video demonstrates my method for scanning cross processed film using my Epson V500 scanner, the standard Epson software and a Lomography Digitaliza. I do use some of the advanced features in the software to tweak the colours and contrast, but as this previous tipster demonstrates, nothing that couldn’t be done in a traditional darkroom.
All the shots below have been scanned using this method; hope you find it useful!

As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
This is a film soup that I came up with a long time ago but was not happy about it at all. In fact, I've slightly modified it for this tipster that I'm about to share with you. Read on to find out more.
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.
Aside from the fact that Ubud is a must-visit tourist spot in Bali, it is also the perfect place to relax and get inspired. There, you’ll see and feel something different. Staying there for a month in 2012 made me discover good places to visit. If ever you'll be in Bali for a holiday, don't forget to visit Ubud. Now, I shall take you on a quick visit to this town!
