Better late than never? How often is that saying true? Well my summer project does still exist, just because I’ve waited so long to share the photos doesn’t mean my summer didn’t happen. I’m just always late to the party, you know. But that usually means I turn up drunk.. Or I’m the last one standing.. Where am I going with this?
So I tried film soaking and that was fun. I love an experiment, but an experiment with photography and my knees are knocking and my hands are shaking. Maybe I should get that looked at. This 35mm film was soaked in vinegar for 2 days, then soaked in water for 3 days and dried out in rice. These photos were taken on my trusted pal Olympus Trip 35.
Other than looking like we all have been infected with a deadly virus (but still having time to drink gin and tonic out of ‘shake it up’ glasses) I’m loving a bit of soak-a-film-to-make-it-look-all-weird-and-cool. That’s the technical term.
Tune in next time for some more film soaking with diseases such as gangrene, scurvy and the black death.
