Why drink Yakult? Because it is a probiotic milk that can bring so many benefits to kids and adults alike. Because of its distinct composition--live Lactobacilillus Casei Shirota, I made this crazy experiment and wondered how these bacteria could possibly affect the photos. I thought if it's good for our "insides," then perhaps it will also do our films good. Here are simple steps in making your film healthy and be happy with the result.
What you need:
-1 bottle of Yakult
-Film with canister (In my case I only used a color negative Kodak HD 400)
-Any analogue camera
What I did:
Poured the cultured milk over the canister with the film inside. Soaked it for hours (took me almost a day). Removed the excess Yakult. Left it by my room’s window for drying. Loaded it into my Vivitar UWS camera. Took outdoor/sunny pictures. Had the film developed without any special instructions regarding the processing.
Upon seeing the results, I can definitely say I can use Yakult film everyday in any day with any camera. I’m happy with the colors it produced and the texture of the photos, which perhaps is due to the microorganisms. In addition to the healthy benefits this drink gives us, we can therefore confirm its good use and wonderful effects on our normal films.
