Some accidents that I hope should happen to you and might give a pretty nice results!
I have written a tip about having light leaks on 120 film and said that this technique won’t look good in 35mm even if it is not planned. But I discovered that there is a chance on how your 35mm shots can get artful light leaks. However, this may not count as a technique and could actually damage your cameras or totally over expose your shots.
Anyway, it happened to me when my holga35 fell out of my jacket. I had nearly finished the roll and it just fell on the ground on a sunny day. The camera back sprang open and I immediately tried to closed it to save some of my shots from being exposed. I almost thought I lost the contents of the roll, rewinded it anyways and sent it to the lab. Seeing the results, on some of the shots, you can see the silhouettes of the sprockets and gave a nice effect on my photos, it worked!
So again: this is NOT a technique, it is an accident with results I like!

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
I like to think, that every location I have been writing about in the past years was a discovery of some sort. This story will be about the discovery somebody else made. Wendy Sloboda is maybe the coolest dino hunter of our time. She has tattoos, dreads and she found a new species of dinosaur, that now carries her name: the Wendiceratops Pinhornensis.
It’s that time of the year when you can almost hear the holiday knocking on your door. Although, holidays are usually meant for taking a break from your 9 to 5 type of a job, there is no reason why you shouldn’t allow yourself a healthy amount of laziness and still do some fun, creative things...
