Go Out and Reuse Your Film!


When I got my film scanned and returned to me, I was totally surprised by the photos! The film was used with three different cameras, the Fisheye 2, Actionsampler, and the Supersampler. Well, not all the frames got into the camera fusion, but it wasn’t necessary for all of it to get into the mix. This was a really nice doubles effect.

Some pictures would have a face popping outta nowhere; some came out like a Fish-Sampler! The crazy thing is, the photos have been shot over time, some being a year old, some being a couple months back, probably because I’ve winded the film back to a look as if it was brand new.

This roll has reminded me of why I love Lomography, the unpredictability of what you’ve taken. It totally gives an element of suspense, surprise, and happiness. Shoot a roll then use it again on a whole different camera, it’ll be mind-blowing! Enjoy!

Need some film to experiment with? Drop by our online shop or one of our worldwide gallery stores to stock up on film! We have cameras, lenses, and accessories too, so make sure to check them out.

    @spigedog after completing a roll, wind it back in, but make sure you leave some film sticking out. then put it in a whole new camera =) hope you have fun!!!!
