Handle your film with care. “Yeah right” Somapic said : ) as he eyed a brave roll of film on his table lying next to a film changing bag. A fan of unsharp and distorted images he decided to try something of his own: film crumbling!


  • Take the film out of the canister
  • Crumble it firmly but carefully
  • Each bend will cause distortion in your prints
  • Roll the film back up into the canister and start shooting!

    This happened to me during film processing at a lab. I was bummed at first thinking it would be hard to scan, but it actually turned out kind of cool.

    it´s just a little boring spooling it back - but next time i´ll try something....i´ll have my lc-a in that changing bag... that film rewinder also works with camera back open.
