Do the Walking Double!

16

Do you love film swaps? Do you love walking with your friends to take lots of pictures? Read on if your answer is "YES!"

“The Walking Double” is a simple film swap, with the exception that you don’t waste your time and don’t spend your money to ship a roll of film to another part of the world.

It’s very easy to make a “Walking Double.” Here’s what you need to do:

1. GO OUT with a friend for a lomowalk
2. LOAD your favorite lomo camera
3. TAKE the first shot
4. DON’T ADVANCE the film to the next frame
5. GIVE your camera to your lomo-friend
6. YOUR FRIEND takes another shot for a double exposure
7. REPEAT these points until the last exposure
8. GAME OVER! Develop and enjoy the results!

Here are some examples of my “Walking Doubles:”

Doubles with giovannidecarlo
Doubles with flashstalker
Doubles with bonzone

Don’t worry, the results will be unpredictable and unexpected, just like with normal doubles!
