Tipster of the Week: The Endless Storyteller

This is how you tell a story in one roll of film or more.

Continually Shot Across Multiple Frames
by ruprechtstudios

You can take one continual shot with a Diana F+ taking shots at every half turn of the film. Every other shot you fire the flash. Start with the first shot as a close up and move slightly further away on the next shot. This will leave you with a collage of images that are superimposed on each other, with sharp images at each frame.

Moving further away with each shot will give you a good cascading composition across multiple frames to be viewed as a single picture. The final outcome almost looks like a story board.

When you are done shooting, you will need to have the film processed. However, DO NOT let them cut the film into negatives for you, otherwise you will have a bunch of negatives cut in random locations. Ask for the film to be processed without having the film cut into negatives.

Take the long spool of film back to your house and the looking through the film at the light, figure out where you want to cut it. This will give you extra long negatives that might be 3, 4, or 5 traditional negatives long (wide depending on how you are looking at it)

Then you will need to take that negative and have it printed at a specialty printing house if you want the print to include the sprocket holes, otherwise you can scan the film yourself and print the file yourself.
