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!

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
