pft, they're only amazing. So, what? You socked then in gin for three hours then left them to dry...then got them developed as normal?
Incredibubble.

hiven said...

To clarify, what are the steps?

thanks guys xx ... the funny bubbly burn things in the first photo are still just the mystery of the gin. what amazed me the most was how it did so many different things across all the photos - and sometimes just exactly perfectly right. like the ball of light in the photo where she has her arms stretched out.

okay so what i did was.

found a little jar that would fit the film inside and filled it about 3/4 with gin. and also found a suitable biscuit tin to dry it in and put an old cloth on the bottom.

then made everything in the room totally dark, which meant putting blankets over windows and such...then pulled all the film out of the canister

actually now that i think of it,

when you have a new roll of film there is always that bit of film sticking out of the cannister and that's what you wind onto the sprockets, and when you finish shooting and wind the film back up that bit has always gone all inside when you take the film out...
so i had gone into a camera shop and asked them to pull out that bit for me again.

then in the dark i pulled all the film out and put in inside the jar, shook it up. put it in the tin and then put the tin in a drawer for three hours to make sure no light got in.
then took the film out of the jar and back into just the tin, trying to make it not touch too much as it dries stuck together - but a little bit is okay because that's probably what made the burn things in the first photo.

and then left it for a couple of days in the drawer. and then poked the film back into the cannister again and took it in to be developed as normal.

You're brilliant!
The colours kind of bleed in the right places,
and in the sky with arms stretched.
Film always tastes like it's pre-digital.
