- FILM SOUP
Following the success of my inaugural film soup experiment, I did not have much time to shoot the second roll borne of the same soup batch. Between work and dealing with consecutive botched rolls from my LC-A+, I could not muster up enough zest or inspiration to shoot. With regards to the latter, silly me should have changed the batteries in the LC-A+ instead of concluding prematurely of its dire death.
The LC-A+ is fortunately still alive and well, as these following photos would show. I am very much in love with these photos; the film soup effects are even more pronounced than the first roll! Amazing! By the way, this roll was developed by the Lomolab, so it’s good to know they’re able to work with purposely damaged films. Just expect a longer waiting time, though. It can be quite…exasperating. But the results, when they turn out this good, are always worth it!
I never intended to double expose this roll. What happened was that, halfway through the roll, it got stuck in the camera. This was due to the film soup of course, which made the film sticky and potentially harmful to your camera. So be cautious about this. Anyway, I rewound the roll and continued shooting, hence the multiple exposures on some shots.
Blood-like streaks of red are most prominent in this roll, particularly in the above photo. On some shots, they look like oil stains too. I’m not sure what made it red, though. I certainly didn’t add any colouring…but maybe I should!
What do you think of these photos, or experimenting with film soup in general? Or maybe you can suggest me random ingredients to use next? Leave me a comment below! I may just do it.
More photos from the roll can be seen here.
