One of the most amazing things about shooting analogue photos is that you are entitled to pleasant surprises even when you thought everything’s going to be messed up.
Istionojr’s winning photo is a perfect example of the pleasant surprises film photography presents. It was taken using a Holga 120 CFN Jack Edition loaded with Lomography Lady Grey 400 120 film. He developed the roll himself. Here’s what he has to say about the photo:
I really have no idea what was happened with my first try a 120mm film roll ever. The emulsion is already damaged when it see with naked eye, the negative is dirty with scrambled black stain, and the exposed images are covered by the pattern on the backing paper. Was all those glitch due to my self develop? I used a paper developer for this time. *fingers crossed. [sic]
Congratulations, istionojr for being our Photo of the Day winner.
