The Camera does not lie by AlexanderLevett The Camera does not lie by AlexanderLevett
I wanted to share this photograph with you. This has not been edited in any way from the 35mm film aside from some sharpening. Now I do not know how this happened but I think is is an amazing image. If anyone more experienced in photography has any ideas please feel free to share.
Please fell free to visit My Journal for updates on my work and life.

Makes me wonder how it would have been without the developing error

to be honest it probable wouldn't be as good as the error makes it a really effective picture :-):squee:

Hmm, I can't point a finger at it but my guess is - quite straightforward, really - that possibly some acid-like chemical ingredient caused those blisters in the blue area on the right side due to some mixture ratio mistake...
No idea...:shrug: It makes an appealing contrast at any rate, the velvety texture of the flower and the blistered/burned looking pattern of the mis-developed part. Very unique! :)
My Canon Ixus 500 once had a sensor error, that made for most interesting results too. People would ask me "Cool, I wanna get such effects!" and I would say "Uhm, the camera messed it up all by itself." Lol! That's life, eh? :D :nod:

I really loved the effect and I am glad others can get to appreciate it. I have another one that is less dramatic that I may upload, I will have to see.

VERY interesting! You had no filters on the lens when you took this? It almost looks like it was a chemical problem in the development of the film; are the other pictures you took also affected, or just this one?

I used to be a photographer in a previous life (read: many many years ago!), and I've had some mishaps like that happen occasionally with the chemicals. That was in black & w photography, though. Now, if I remember well, for colour you actually have to use several different solutions in developing the negative, is that correct? So the fault ( ? ) would lie in the solution affecting the greens.

Just tossing the idea out there! :)
