Meeting Half Way

Double exposures always yield amazing images. What if you used a splitzer and double exposed your film? Have you tried doing it? I did and here are the results.

One day I was sitting and in front of me was a negative film, my LC-A+ RL and a Splitzer. I thought hard about what I’m going to do with them. I decided to put the film into the camera and used the splitzer to have the bottom half of the lens covered. I didn’t have a plan in mind when I took the photos.

After finishing the roll, I went into a dark room to switch to red scale. I then put the film back into the camera and started shooting, this time with the camera upside down so that the picture will come out the same way.

The photos that came out were great. Some were strange but they came out nice! You can view the gallery below and see a baby’s face with a dog, a cat hunting a bird a city clean up and many more! When you don’t know what to do, you should try this and you will get amazing images for your collection!

The Lomo LC-A+ RL has all the features we know and love, authentic Russian lens, and a back that’s now interchangeable with the Instant Back+. Explore analogue possibilities with the LC-A+ RL!

    Great photos!!!!!!!.... One question though... when you shoot with the camera upside down, you keep the splitzer in the same way... In that way, isn't the same half of the lens covered both times??...

    @nikosanthenet When we shoot on the normal side, it exposes on upper half while lower half is empty. And when we reverse a film to shoot redscale, it means that a film will be upside-down. No need to turn splitzer, just only overturn a camera when shooting to make photos align in the same direction.

    looks awesome, I'm new to Lca and don't have a splitzer yet but when you're talking about turning the film in the darkroom to redscale what do you mean?

    @erinwoodgatesphotography It means when I finished exposing the upper half of film, I reversed a film upside down which is the way we use to shoot the Redscale photo. And you can cut the paper to use instead of splitzer.
    :D

    i don't understand... why do you need to turn over the camera instead of simply turning over the splitzer? maybe it can't be done on lc-a? i dont know, i have Diana
