Something i want to try on my journey through film photography is to try experimental 35mm film. I came across dubblefilm when i was looking through Analougue Wonderland (Film related shop). Dubblefilm was originally launched as an app which was greatly inspired by film swapping in analogue photography. 4 years later, they started to make 35mm film. I would say most of there film are very experimental. And one film i really wanted try...Bubblegum
Bubblegum is a '36 Exposure ISO 200 Colour 35mm film with added tone producing sweet colours to spark your visual taste buds. Results will vary depending on shooting conditions but expect something truly surprising every time.' (Dubblefilm)
I went to Kenwood house in Hampstead, London. It was built in the 17th Century and is open to the public since the 1920s. It is truly one of the best English heritage locations. I thought it would be a great area to test out this film as there are so many flower gardens that it would look so dreamy with the pink tint this film has. And i really love the results that came out, If you would love to learn more about Kenwood House, click here.
I absolutely love this film! It's so fun when you can try new films like this. I had so much fun that day exploring a part of English heritage. I was intrigued to see how double exposures would turn out. And this is one of my favourites.
In some of the shots, pink wasn't very noticeable but the colours came out really beautiful. It's very elegant and soft.
Once i finished, i walked down a road called Bishops Avenue. It's is very well known in North London where rich people live. Mansions after mansions. Some of the houses stood out to me as they were abandoned and really run down. I thought it would be a great contrast to take pictures of these houses with such a soft, playful film.
I would be definitely be shooting this film again! I would love to see how it looks under darker lighting conditions. It seems that all the photos which had an overcast, the pink showed up more. I quite like the grain it produces in the poorly lit conditions. Some of the images were rather overexposed, but i'm still learning! It's really nice getting out of my comfort zone with something different, rather than shooting the same film that i am comfortable with.
Hope you enjoyed this! Let me know if you have shot this film before. I'd love to see your results.
