Letting your film-roll swim in boiling water with a little bit of a household cleaner will give your photos a blue and shining fog.
it is spring time and everybody is cleaning their houses, why shouldn’t your film-roll shine as well?!
a few days before i was looking for an other ingredient for my film-roll-lab. I saw the household cleaner based on sodium hypochlorite and thought, why should the film not be cleaned before exposing it?!?!?! Didn’t waste any time, and started to boil water and gave some of the domestos to it, mixed it a little bit and let the film-roll swim for about 30min.
After letting the pulled-out film dry over the heater for a night, i went outside to shoot some photos.
here are some results out of the album:
Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.

Today, we gain altitude with Ben Nardini, director of photography and pilot of drone for Almo film production. Passionate about image, whether static or moving, Ben meets the LC-Wide in the LGS in New York. He is taking this little analogue camera everywhere ever since, even when the good fellow leaves for Alaska. Let's go for a special meeting "from the top"!
One of our regular first roll testers, Brian Bruno, had an exceptional shoot set to work hand in hand with the Lomography F²/400 Color Negative Film. In this interview, he shares his photos and thoughts on the film.
When experimenting with new rolls of film, it's often the first roll that brings both the most joy and the most trial & tribulation. We want to start highlighting some successful first attempts here on our Magazine with our films. The first in this line up is Brian Bruno aka Brunoroids.
We gave Nilipek., who won a spot in our hearts with her incredibly cute tone of voice, joyous melodies with her ukulele and a naturally friendly style a clean and pure La Sardina DIY for her to design and take photos with. She became our LomoAmigo and agreed to a little chat with us.
UK Online Manager Hannah Brown loaded a roll of LomoChrome Purple film in the LC-Wide camera and created some colorful, panoramic shots. She talks about her love for this wide angle lens camera and the joy of the unknown.
12 New Media students from the University of Texas, all armed with Lomography cameras, travelled to New York City for an advanced studio art course in May 2016. They each shot one roll of film in a LomoKino per day, and the results were exciting and diverse. Read more here.
