I have always wanted to try Revolog Kolor Film, but for the mean time, I tried out a DIY substite.
Revolog is a film company that sells hand-made special effects film. Among their roster, I have always wanted to try the Kolor Film, which produces photos with transitioning shades of different colors. Below is a sample image.
People have hypothesized that this is a merely pre-exposed film. While I am yet to try the actual film, I decided to experiment on double exposure to achieve the similar effect.
Using PowerPoint, I simply prepared a slide and changed its background color to one of the presets. Then, I connected my laptop to my television for a bigger display.
I loaded a color negative film onto my SLR camera and photographed the screen, with one stop underexposure. This was done repeatedly for the entire roll. Then, I reloaded the roll in my LC-A+ and took snapshots with it. Although the results are not exactly the same to that of Revolog’s, some of the photos actually turned out nicely. I hope you try it!
Walking Through Quiapo A trip, deep into the heart of Manila, along the Quiapo streets less taken. It can be argued the the district of Quiapo is the very heart of the Manila; a microcosms of sort. It is divided by Quezon Boulevard into two general areas. In the better known part, one can locate the Quiapo Church, Raon, and the haven for photographers, Hidalgo Street. The other side, however, seems to be typically less explored by local tourists.
Of Zombies and Ladies that Look like Dudes It's a good thing to be surrounded by a lot of people willing to be cast in odd portraits. Last April 15, our group, Shutter Revolution, celebrated its first anniversary. We gathered at the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center for a mustache picnic party. About 40 of us came, each bringing food contributions. With so many friends whom I share the same hobby with around, I decided to take portraits of them. I had two concepts in mind.

The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1 Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
