Today’s featured awesome album shows a mix of misty landscapes, a fog of crazy colors, and peppery texture that can only come from distressed film.
True enough, the fascinating photos in the gallery below were taken by novakmisi using a Canon EOS SLR camera loaded with an expired Fujicolor HG 100 'cooked' with an iron solution for plants. The result? Dreamy photos painted mostly in muted sepia tones most likely from the film having been expired for a whopping 18 years by the time he exposed it. Then, there’s also the tinge of green and magenta which seem to be hand-painted. Lastly, the speckled texture peppered around the photos kind of give away that they were the results of an interesting experiment.
Oh, the wonders of playing with film soups, marinades, and dips! If this awesome album failed to convince you to try out film destroying tips, we don’t know what else will!
The Awesome Albums series is exactly what it says on the tin — it’s a love letter of sorts from the Editors addressed to user-uploaded albums that had caught their eye and had inadvertently fallen in love with. Please understand though, they’re really just here to express their love and nothing more.
