After exposing the film, simply leave the canister soaking in a cup of lemon juice, the longer left the more increased result. For these photos I waited 45 minutes – 1 hour. The next step is to dry the film. in a darkroom (I used my bathroom with the lights off), unravel the film from the canister and dry manually with a hair-dryer until the film is no longer slimy and moist.
Finally – take your film to your local lab, and admire all your lovely lemon Lomo’s. I used a Diana Mini with Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400.

What makes Game of Thrones one of the most popular shows (if not the most) to date is its beautiful writing. However, let's give credit to the aesthetics, too. The show's pretty consistent and thematic on showing the colors of "ice and fire", a subtle hint of its visual storytelling.
