Just Forget Which Film You're Using.


Maybe you know this, too: You take your camera out of your bag and don’t think about the film, you have loaded. Unexpected funny pictures are the results.

This actually happened to me for the first time a few weeks ago…as a newbie in analogue photography. During holiday I went for a walk through the streets of New York, saw a taxi and thought: YAY why don’t you just do a longtime exposure. During the evening my boyfriend suddenly said: you know you have a b/w film in your cam?

It’s hard to believe but I took some really funny and unexpected pictures:) So here is my tip: Throw all your films in a big bag, grab one out, load it and start shooting. Or just remove the label and see what happens. Have fun :)

    I always forget what I have put into my camera, or what the film I have loaded is meant to be like. Good tip!
