Mephisto's June Rumble - Burn, Baby, burn ended over 3 years ago

It's another month and Lomographic luminary mephisto19 has another rumble he cooked up for the rest of the community. Be careful not to burn yourself though, as this one is scorching!

Photo by mephisto19

This rumble is about a mistake. You surely heard of the three shot rule? No? After inserting a film you should take three blank photos to avoid any light damage. But that is what makes a photo interesting. Once you discovered that, you can play with it and create something out of the burned beginning of every film.
The other mistake happens if you open the back of your camera, the 120 film is not tide to the spool or you want it to happen – light leaks.

For this rumble show your six best pictures of light leaks and burned beginnings, open backs and this orange flare like fire.

Here are some samples:

Please keep in mind to use only analogue photos, not digitally manipulated, ADD ALL META DATA that is needed (film, camera, location, three tags,…) Winners will receive some piggy points

    Great, just wrote a blog entry about the burnt picture of the film! (: But haven't published yet. And I'm just saying 'cause I think coincidences are funny! Lomo on! P.S. - If the winners receive "some" piggy points we should be allowed to also put "some" metadata! :P

    we should totally ditch that rule. i absolutely love getting the weird photos at the beginning of the roll. i think you'll get more of the full frame redscale-ish shots if you load film in not so dark places? hmm correct me if i'm wrong. here are some of my photos,

    The first time I try to get a light leak by opening my camera back, I burned about 3 quarters of the whole roll. That was really an experience :')

    i thought it was a disaster after opening my film back accidentally exposing the negative but this rumble made it all worthwhile.

    @paper_doll ja... There is a total of piggies that I can spend but no number of winners. So it has to stay with "some piggies" while the META DATA a general thing is...

    I love when the numbers from the paper backing expose onto images from leaving the 120 roll too loose... see others do it unintentionally a lot XD
