Bended Negatives


A little bit of lab rats directly from the lab.

I never had any problems with my lab which is why I was surprised when a film had been totally messed up at the end. It was folded, bended and in some parts even dead. So what I did was that I cut the first parts of the negatives and scanned them, and I must say, I’m quite pleased with the results! The bending and folding created white strips across the redscale film, a cool effect.

I don’t know if I would ever of been brave enough to hurt my negatives like that, so thank you, lab, for making that mistake for me (but please do it only once!)
