Film Faves #1

Partly inspired by Jim Grey‘s single frame series, and partly by an effective practice I had with a former blog, I’m planning a regular series of very short posts that revisit some of my favourite film photographs from the last five years since I’ve been shooting film.

Film Faves #1

Olympus XA2, Ferrania Solaris 200 Expose Both Sides

This was possibly the height of my film experimentation – shooting a roll of film in the little XA2, rewinding then rolling back into another canister as DIY redscale (in a improvised darkroom bag – ie my hoodie – in the middle of the woods), then shooting through again. Heady times!

Have you ever tried exposing both sides of the film? Please let us know in the comments below (and share links to your results!)

Thanks for reading. Please share this post with others you feel will enjoy it too.

  1. I don’t know that I’ve ever been an inspiration before!

    Interesting result on that shot. Almost looks like something was wrong with the emulsion there in the middle.

    1. Jim you have a very respectable readership I’m sure you’ve inspired plenty!

      I think the two layers here were different orientations. The landscape tree layer is right way up, the other layer with the almost pale green block was a piece of rusting old farm machinery and shot portrait I think, so it’s turned on its side now in this final image…
