“I have soaked my film in many different substances including soap, dishwasher detergent, lemon, vinegar, Gatorade, curry, and cough medicine.” Film soup is an experimental analog photography technique where you soak a roll of film in different liquids to add fun, crazy colors and effects.

I wonder if this is how they got the effects in Vera Chytilová's Daisies.

...At least some of them, bc I think most of the effects come from changing the film stock or overlaying tints or changing the exposure times...

Very neat stuff, nice post. I keep meaning to experiment with this but I've got so many half-finished film projects that I don't need a new one. I do use a lot of ancient expired film that gives pretty random results.

Very cool! Those are some very evocative effects.
