If you like the colors of expired film but your fridge is filled with film that expires in some years, you’ll like this very simple tip.
If you are the proud owner of an automatic camera like the Lomo LC-A+ or the Olympus XA or any camera that allows you to set the asa and that changes the exposure time varies automatically, you can manage how much red your redscale pictures will become. It´s so simple like overexpose the film 3 stops or more. I discovered this because I was using Velvia 50F and I forgot to set the asa value when I changed the film. In the example shot was used Fuji superia 400 @ 50 iso and Agfa Vista 200 @50.
As you can see as the film advances I realized my mistake, so I decided to keep varying the asa value at random – following my Lomographic spirit – and taking note of what value was set for all the shots. Because of my lack of money the developing process was made pretty normally: the 400 asa film developed at 400 and the 200 asa film at 200. The eyes of the lady at the lab while gave me the printed pictures told me everything: my experiment was a complete succes! The result was some pictures with superb vintage look, others with expired film look and even some close to redscale shots, all in the same roll of film!
At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."

This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
