One of the photogs here posted a pic on his Flickr account that inspired me to try this next experiment. He was using some film that had been pre-exposed to colored light to create color shifts. Some college students in Europe are selling it and it's pretty pricey. I immediately had to try creating it on my own.
I was limited on what I could use (couldn't go to the store) so I had to get creative. I took a cd spindle cover and painted it dark green with craft paint--took a couple coats:
I cut out a bit of the side so I could fit it over the bare bulb in my bathroom. Then I laid the strip of film out flat on my bathroom sink, turned the light on for about 1 second, then respooled it into a film cannister.
I took double shots of each picture, one at 100 ISO (which is what the film was) and one at 200, to compensate for the pre-exposure. Most of the shots at 200 came out better, but the 100 ISO shots are still OK.
Of course it would have been better to use non-expired film. Next time! Also I think I'll just try to get some colored bulbs when I do this again. Except they're going to be too bright for me to just expose the film by flipping a light switch. Hmm.
Results (shot with an Olympus XA):
Interesting that the color shift is blue, huh? That paint must have mostly blue in it.
And I ran. I ran so far away.
