SIWF Insiders is a monthly membership group to help you learn all about film photography with new lessons every single month. When you join, you’ll also get immediate access to all of our past lessons, including several about experimental film photography (like our Double Exposure and Film Soup modules!).
This will be our biggest category covering techniques such as double exposures, film soup, creating your own light leaks, and more. These techniques are not camera or film stock specific, and you can do many of them no matter what film camera you have.
We’ve broken these up into subcategories, just to keep everything organized for you!
Film soup is the process of soaking your film in different household chemicals to create colorful and destructive effects on your negatives.
Here are a few tutorials and resources to get you started:
Here are a few more experimental film photography techniques that you will definitely want to try.
Exposing Both Sides of Your Film: This technique allows you take any roll of film and use it to shoot redscale, specifically creating double exposures with one normal exposure and one redscale exposure.
Trichromatic Photography: Trichromatic film photography is the process of using filters with b&w film to create color images. A very cool technique!
Create Light Leaks: Have you ever tried adding light leaks to your film images on purpose? It’s a fantastic way to add beautiful washes of color to your images.
