Quadruple Crazy: Make Your Actionsampler Fused


It's always fun to use the Actionsampler and capture some sequential movement. But are you bored with the results of the Actionsampler? One thing I do with mine is remove the separation mask. Read on!

I used the Actionsampler with no flash, you might want to use that too for this modification. The separation mask of the first Actionsampler with no flash is easier to remove than the one with a flash.

To remove it, I just simply used slotted screwdriver. Just tear out the separation mask with that. Now you can go out and try the new Actionsampler. Whatever you shoot — humans, animals, landscapes – you will get different, crazy, MX-like results! The images seem like they have been fused.

Just try it with different films and you’ll be surprised with the results. I used a redscale film for the examples. Goodluck and Lomo on! Thanks to dikasapi for the inspiration.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Photo Stories: We Must Celebrate Water by disdis

    One of the things that make a trip to a far-flung place truly memorable is getting the chance to interact with the locals and share fun moments with them. Five years ago, disdis was able to do exactly that on a trip to Zinguinchor, Senegal, and it goes without saying that it was most certainly one for the books.

    A Salute to the Masters: Judo (A Tribute to Sabine Weiss)

    This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!

    Here and There: Sights by Analog Photographer Dora Kontha

    Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
