After the almost-documentary photography of Burning Nest, I wanted to try something a bit creative, and without much expectation of an end result. I bought a job lot of cheap Cokin filters from eBay a while ago, including some shaped bokeh filters, and a multi-image glass filter, that splits the image into 5 parts. While visiting a friend in Norwich, we got some fairy lights out of his loft, and shot a roll of images in the dark using the filters. Then, I rewound the film (being careful to leave the leader out) and re-shot the roll in the nearby woods, Mousehold Heath.
…well, just for fun, really.
A technique I’ve recently stumbled across on Lomography’s tutorial site shows us how to expose both sides of a roll of film, giving results that are half normal, half redscale. The results are trippy and gorgeous, and the best results have been achieved by Lomo user Hodachrome.
