beautiful failures

Since analog photography has much more creative opportunities to fail than “ran out of battery” or “ran out of space on my SD card” I thought it was time for a new category: Beautiful failures. In this category I will post all those shots that are interesting despite being quite obviously flawed:

My film clips for hanging the film to dry are somewhat destructive. They produce these 3 circular indentations. The shot looked too underexposed to save and was cut off anyway, so I thought I was not destroying anything salvageable. Well, I was wrong.

It was pouring down like crazy, so the film got wet. As a result the film was not transported anymore at the end of the roll and I had no indication that the roll was finished. I don’t even know how many times I exposed this shot, multi-exposure deluxe.

Since my walk in the rain was like pre-soaking the film for half an hour the film ripped. There is also some sort of stain on the negative from who knows what.

All pictures taken with: Zorki 4K and Jupiter 12 35mm f/2.8.
Ilford HP5+ souped in Tetenal Ultrafin 1:20.
