The Crumpled One


I’ve been thinking of another way to prepare film before exposing it, and this is what I came up with.

I wanted to have some “vintage” photos so I pulled out the black and white film in a dark room and crumpled it for a while. Afterwards, I spun back the film and loaded the camera. The results are very different from what I expected, but they’re not bad!!!

    Nice! I love those huge wrinkles! i've scratched it with steel wool before, and it gave me a lot of tiny little gashes.
