Too Cold for a LomoWalk? Have Some Film Soup For the Winter!


Winter a bit too cold for a Lomo-Walk? Then how about giving film soup experiments a try? They're fun and will definitely produce unpredictable, bizarre results. If this is your first time to try these tipsters, always proceed with caution. Don't risk a valuable film roll (something you wouldn't want to "destroy" with stains and leaks) and we advise to process the film yourself. Otherwise, please inform your friendly film lab that you have dunked the rolls in soup. Remember that it's important to dry your rolls thoroughly before sending them off so that you won't risk ruining the lab's chemicals or equipment.
