For anyone who processes and prints there own film, experimentation is a great way to produce new images. Many of you will be familiar with solarization of prints, or Sabbitier effect, but solarizing your negatives is another tool.
The first rule of thumb is that simple images tend to work best, small still lifes, flowers, nudes, etc. I generally use small 35mm film strips, cutting 5 to 10 frames out of the camera in the darkroom. Load onto a reel and process normally. Halfway into the development process, remove the film from tank and reel in the dark. I shake the strip a couple of times to remove liquid. Lay flat and expose to white light such as a 60 watt bulb for 1 to 10 seconds – you need to do some experimentation with your film and developer here. Turn out the light, return the film to the reel and the tank and complete the regular development. Stop, fix and wash normally and prepare to be amazed.
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras. The current issue of German magazine FOTO HITS focuses on medium format photography. And with this rumble, we want to prove why medium format photography is king. Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!
