Movie Doubles, It's Simple!

13

The best way to capture a scene from your most favorite movie!

It’s raining outside, you are bored and you don’t know what to do and all you can think of is shooting, shooting and more shooting. Movie doubles is the answer!!! Grab two of your favorite movies or sacrifice walking in the rain to your nearby video take out. Get some pop corn, chips, soda, chocolate while you’re at it, anything to make it more cozy. Insert the DVD of choice in your player and sit 0.8m in front of your television. Make sure you see the screen in your viewfinder and try to leave out the edge of your TV. Now get ready to capture some Hollywood shots, be quick cause you don’t want to miss the best scenes!

I got this idea after seeing Movie doubles by sushi_9009 + vicuna album and thought it would be a great idea to give it a try. After I was done shooting my roll I spooled it back and passed it on to my boyfriend to double it with his movie of choice. We did our doubles with the LC-A, but it could be interesting to try it with another camera (if anyone has tried it keep me posted) When I received my roll back from the photo shop I was very pleased with the results and I couldn’t wait to scan them!

You can see some other movie doubles that I have done with ftomballe and vstephanie and I still can’t get enough of it! If any body is interested in doing some movie doubles with me, you are more then welcome to contact me. You can see more doubles in my Lomovies home!

    Oh I like the Ninja Turtles bad guys shot. Can someone tell me the cost difference in cross processing your own film and getting it done in a lab?

    Glastonbury As Seen Through the New Petzval 85 Lens by Taio Konishi

    The Glastonbury Festival is arguably one of the most anticipated and renowned music festivals in the world. It is a joy to be able to watch it, and a privilege to capture scenes on and off stage. Apart from creating beautiful portraits, the Petzval Lens is great for adding an albeit subtle drama to the already spectacular scenes of music festivals. Japanese photographer Taio Konishi photographed this year's Glastonbury with a Petzval 85mm Lens, and here are some of the photos. He also talks about his Petzval-meets-Glastonbury experience in this exclusive.

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in.

Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
