Quickie Tipster: Dry your film

This is just to show you guys how I dry my film. Well a lot of people use squeegees when processing film. This however can cause the film to get scratched. But if you don’t use a squeegee and hang your film up to dry the water running down the film might leave some spots or lines. – This is charming, yes and this IS the Lomo Site – I know.

But if you, like me, would like to avoid all these things, have a look at this:

When you´ve developed and fixed your film use a wetting agent or some dish detergent to make the water run of the film more easily. Remove your film from the spool and place it on a newspaper like so.

Leave it there for about an hour or so, then hang dry as usual.

Voila! No scrathes and stuff.
