Flip off the end cap and then put it back on?
I have progressed from Digital photography to Film. I have been on this kick of shooting with expired film to get that random effect of it being "bad". Firstly do any of you have any expired film that you may want to sell, or do you know anyone that has some expired film? I especially would love something exotic like a Russian or czech brand.
Also is there any way to fake film being expired? Like could I put it in the microwave for like 1 second or maybe heat it up to 180 degrees or maybe fluctuate the temperature on it or leave it in humid room or hit it with a blow drier?
I am want to age the film but not totally destroy it ... any ideas?
How to turn any 35mm roll of film into red-scale film |
Which basically says if you pop off the end cap and then reverse the direction of the film, it becomes redscale film.
Anti-static brushes used in photography used to contain a tiny amount of polonium. The radium in a watch might work, too. If the energy is high enough to trip the chemical reaction in the film's emulsion, then you're set. Might take a few minutes to partially fog the film. Might take a few days. You won't know, however, unless you find some data sheets on both the film and whatever source you'd be using on it.
Microwaves won't cut it. The wavelengths are too long.
The oven is actually a better idea, as IR waves are much shorter than microwaves.
