Double Film in a Camera?

29

Have you ever thought of loading your camera with two films? Probably not. And to be honest, I think it wouldn't even work, or would it? But I had an idea similar to that, which anyone can do.

In this tipster à la rancliffhasenza, you will be shown a method how you can create a piece of art by adding a second film in your camera, or should I say small part of a second film? Let’s start, shall we?

1. First of all you need two rolls of film, I chose two color negative films, and of course a camera.

2. Now comes a very, veeeeeeeeery important detail. ONE FILM NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED BLANK! There are two ways to get that kind of film. You send off your film for development by mistake, like I did, or you just go to your local photo store and get it developed without getting a bunch of not existing pictures.

3. Now you possess one undeveloped and one developed film. Take your blank developed film roll and cut a rectangle with the measures 4cm x 1.5cm.

4. Now you have to stick that small piece of film into your camera. To stick it in, I use gum-stickers (you use these to stick a poster at your wall).

5. Load the camera with the other film, shoot it throught and bingo, double film photos are done. You’re welcome :)

    So you're only using a tiny bit of the developed film to stick as a mask? Just clarifying. Great idea :)

    Yeah, I've done that, but with a roll of processed film layered in a new roll of film. I was trying to create a film mask that will change with every picture. See the results here: www.lomography.com/homes/cheeso/albums/1733980-really-stupi…

    @dearjme Yes it's just a tiny piece of a blank developed film, which is used as a mask in the kamera, sticked between lens and film :)

    Thank you all for the likes and comments! :)

    great minds think a like! i thought of the same idea when trying to make a mask in order to have a redscale effect. it was about a year ago (when i first took an interest in lomography) and i still haven't developed the roll, cant wait to see the results now.. thanks for sharing so now i have an idea of what mine might come out like, if my results are successful i'll try it again with a different camera and in different shapes

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

    Turning the Turquoise Over

    The LomoChrome Turquoise film boasts bold and unpredictable colors, so I thought "redscaling" it would yield an even more dramatic result. Much to my surprise, the dominant color palette of my photographs revealed LomoChrome Turquoise's soft and delicate side.

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
