So, the other day while I was enjoing the photos made with the Splitzer, I've got an idea how to do this device at home, using improvised materials only.
This is what you need to create your own splitzer:
35mm film canisters with the cap
duct tape/ adhesive tape
1. Make the half-round hole in the cap (or anything what you can imagine);
2. Cut the top part of 35mm film canister (7-8 mm);
3. Make two holes on the opposite sides of a ring that we’ve just got, closer to wide part (we’ll attach wide part of ring to camera and thin part to cap so it’ll screw easy). Do the holes so you can slide the scotch tape througn it.
4. Slide the tape through each hole with it’s sticky side downward, then fold and stick together.
5. Set the ring on the lens;
6. Attach with duct tape;
My brother had a photo exhibition last year at the North Sea Jazz Festival and got two tickets. So just like the old days with our father, we went to the Ahoy Rotterdam for an evening of jazz and other music. I was armed with an analogue SLR camera, telephoto lens, and sensitive film!

A few months ago, I thought I had an intolerance against the milk sugar lactose. I got stomach aches every time I ate something with milk in it so I used lactase to prevent it. But when I consulted a doctor to be tested, they said it was something else.
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
Chloé Vollmer-Lo's photos speak for themselves. Every image, whether it's a portrait or a seemingly simple snapshot of a street alley, tells a story. The Paris-based photographer tested the New Petval Lens 85 recently, and the results, as expected, speak volumes. She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.
