Din! The Film is Ready!

8

I thought of cooking film. I put the film in the microwave and.... good pictures came out!

Last night I was hungry but not for food, for pictures!!! I think to cook a good film!

I’ve done so:

1) In a dark room I’ve extract the film from the roll (because the container is maked in metal and is very dangerous in the microwave)

2) Always in the dark I’ve put the film in a black container (I’ve used same the film roll plastic container)

3) I’ve put the roll in the microwave at max power (800 Watt) for 20-30 seconds

4) In the darkroom I’ve put the film in the roll (if this is excessively complex for you, you can load the film in the camera without the roll. You have to put the film in the camera and the head must block to the spool with tape; you have to remember to close each windows of the camera with black tape!!!!!). To make this you must block the film in the internal spool with the tape.
5) you can shoot!!!!!

The photo will be very light and pink if overexposed!! Same with the old pictures. If you use the correct exposure the color will be normal. You can try using a longer time…enjoy your meal!!!!

Experiment with film Ferrania Solaris FG 200.

    This seems terribly cool but is there anything like fumes we should worry about? Does it render the microwave useless?

    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.

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras.

    Photo Stories: Away With You by lomomowlem

    It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    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.

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
