A nice LabRat tutorial to gain strange effects on your films!
Digging through the kitchen to see what else I could use for some LabRat experiments I found baking soda and thought “give it a try!” So I mixed baking soda and boiling water in a glass with lit and of course one film: Agfa Vista 200. I think you can also use a cocktail shaker to mix everything very well. After the concoction cooled out I put the film on a heater to dry. This took several weeks to be on the safe side. Next time I will use a hair dryer in a dark room to dry the films!
I loaded my LC-A with the dry film, set it to 200 (so the original film iso, could have overexposed a bit though) and shot it. My lab, Fotofachlabor Roland Wacker, Pforzheim, Germany, was informed so he used one way chemicals to develop the films. I must say that I like the results very much. The purple tones are due to the heat of the boiling water and the baking soda made this tree like structure – very nice!!!

How to Take Close-Up Shots With Your Lubitel 166+ That are IN FOCUS! As great as the Lubitel 166+ is, there is one major disadvantage: the minimum focusing distance. While 80cm is close enough at most occasions, sometimes I would like to get closer. The easy solution to this is using close up filters, but most people who use use them end up guessing the correct focusing distance. From now on, you no longer have to guesstimate, but you can actually focus your image using your viewing lens! Read on and find out how.
