Bored of the clean and lean photos you get from rolls of film? Here's how to add cool textures to them.

Find a subject that has cool interesting patterns, for example the one I used was a piece of wooden board with wavy visible pattern. Firstly, finish the entire roll of film by shooting the same subject (ie. the wooden board). Do rotate and change the ‘composition’ once in a while to get more random patterns. Once that is done … tada~ … you have now a cool roll of ‘empty’ film with textures waiting for its second layer! Do not be afraid to experiment with other subjects with textures, it could be a tree trunk, a brick wall … or even the palm of your hand. You’ll never know what cool results the two exposures will bring you. Have fun!
