Open Your Camera and Expose Your Film!

I'm sure not everyone likes it when the film gets stuck while it is still in the camera. Here's what I did and the results turned out surprising!

One of the solutions to fix this is by opening up the back of camera and re-aligning the film with the sprocket gear spool (depending on the camera type) and the take up spool.

Unfortunately, this method will cause the exposed part of the film to be overexposed to light. Though it may affect the quality of pictures after the film has been developed and cause the pictures to be unclear or overexposed, it can turn out to be surprising and the results are totally awesome and really unexpected.

This is what happened to me and it was my first time having my overexposed film that turned out to be very unique.

It is actually just a way to experiment with your pictures and yes, sometimes things will turn out to be unexpected.

The 10 Golden Rules says it all.
