How to make artistic photos by using a piece of slide film

A while ago i read in one of the tipsters that colurful photos can be knocked out by placing colorsplash flash filters into the camera. But frankly, this idea did not come very attractive to me. Because, in this way, all or a portion of these images would be in a color strip. And then I wondered how the outcome will be if I place a piece of color slide film into the camera. With this idea in mind I think a frame in the end of the roll could be appropriate. So I check the film rolls in my hand and all of a sudden I found this piece.

I placed this frame in to the camera upside- down position as the edge of the sprockets to be seen. Then I placed a new roll and start to shoot.

    What he means is that he's using a mask like in this article:…
    except instead of using those, he's using a piece of slide film.

    Except my dear colleague, you should have mentioned that one needs to overexpose shots in this case, since you have a full stop of film to get through, even if they are just bright colours.

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Janne Parviainen: Light Magician

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
