Soaking an old useless negative “not so useless anymore!” in Clorox for a few seconds until you start seeing the colors sort of fade away then immediately wash the film with running water to stop the bleaching/fading/dissolving/whateveryouwannacallit process .
I got a little carried away watching the colors react to the chemicals 😛 it was so beautiful! As you can see here the negative was pretty damaged.
Here’s what the picture used to look like before, waste of film I know..
and this is what it looks like now, waaaaay much better and far more interesting than before!
Both of the pictures above were scanned in full color mode.
This time I’ve tried doing the same thing on a medium format film. I think it turned out better than the first time 🙂
It used to look so dull and boring but not anymore : P ! (note: picture was converted to B&W in PS)
