Lomography family shoot

Shooting a session with my Lomography cameras was something I had always wanted to do. When I got the email saying that they were interested i was over the moon and after looking at the different techniques that she liked came up with some good film/camera combinations to use for the family shoot.
With film being film there were a few obstacles to overcome, first using up the rest of the rolls that I had started in my Fisheye, Diana Mini, Diana F+, Holga and colorsplash. Second was getting the rolls to the lab and getting them back - this wouldn't have been a problem if I had some kind of regular schedule inside normal working hours but I don't. Then it was the scanning of the negatives, the biggest obstacle. I started scanning all of them and didn't realize until I hit the colorsplash Velvia xpro roll with the high saturated colours that I noticed that the scanner had been scanning with little horizontal lines going all through the images. I spent ages trying to figure it out and then asked Canon and they helped with emailing me about how to calibrate. At least now I'll know for next time!
