If you think you’re too stressed out and feeling older everyday, you might want to consider a new hobby. Something that would deviate you from the usual routine that you’re getting sick of. Why not start dancing Ballroom? buy a new pet perhaps? or fishing on the Pacific? If you fancy none of these, then you should try Instant Cooking Photography!
What I like to do is to take the picture while it is still developing and put it in… the microwave oven! For only 6 seconds, you get burned sides, brown spots and vintage-like colors (at some places). Open, put it in, press 0:06 and Start. Step back, enjoy the sparkles and stay calm; it is normal. If you wait too long before cooking them, the frame will only crack and burn, leaving your developed picture almost perfect. Hit it when it’s weak!
It is a superb way to save accidental exposures of your film! I created nice abstract Polas thanks to my microwave. It is really important to NOT leave them over than 6 seconds, else it could simply caught fire! Also beware: it leaves a foul smell when you finish cooking them, phew!
