Give any of our lab rats a paper clip and a pen, and they’ll produce Lomographic magic! McGyver ain’t got nothin’ on them! We’re sure you guys possess a wild and experimental side suppressed underneath your mild mannered exteriors. What do we want to see? Crazy developing techniques, surreal printing methods, and even toying with the negatives themselves! It’s time to let it all out and go crazy with DIY and alternative photographic processes.

Looking for Inspiration?

These are just a few of our all-time favorite Lab Rat Tips – Each article has step-by-step instructions and is possible to do at home, even if you don’t have much experience at DIY developing or printing. Read how they work and give them a go!
