    Today I present to you the art of mis-exposing 35m film.

    I take a canister of 35mm film, and mis-expose it using a variety of techniques. I then scan the film and the results are totally random, yet beautiful.

    I have a collection of them on my own website: http://www.stuffbynick.com/?page_id=82

    Years of practise and ninja quick timing of pulling out the film and writing my name on it, then rolling it back in the canister. so quick no-one sees me do it :D - that or a photoshop batch action

    I actually have no idea how I managed to make that one you posted Goober, its totally random the effects that are made, and sometimes they throw out images I couldn't have imagined.

    That actually makes me wonder if you could use stencil lettering on the film as you expose it to create words...

    Interesting. I know drawing on a blank developed film with any kind of ink doesnt work very well. But possibly fully exposing a whole roll of film, developing it and then cutting out stencils in it, carefully shoving this stencil film inside the canister WITH the fresh film THEN mis-exposing it all might be interesting.

    Might not work at all, but its an experiment I'd like to try.
