With analogue photography, many fun things can be done: cross processing, multiple exposures, etc. and this is why we adore it! How about putting textures on your Lomographs with the aid of a digital software? An analogue heresy? Not really, and our Tipster here will reveal that these two unlikely things could work together!
Printed Transparent Mask for the Supersampler by afd_lsi
The idea of developing a mask for the Supersampler has been already shown. What if I make masks using other materials, software and computers – can it still be called analogue? Using those tools, I made a transparent mask with graphics on it.
Design the mask using a rectangle as the pattern (37mm x 24mm) divided in for parts (each has 9.25mm). This rectangle will be the guide for the drawing.
Make the drawing that you want, using your favorite software. Don’t forget that each part of the rectangle is a “lens” of the camera and you can do different designs for each for more interesting sequences.
After printing the final drawing, cut it.
Place the transparent mask in the inside of the camera and with small pieces of transparent tape holds it in the desired place. (Be sure that it will not interfere with any of the camera’s mechanisms).
Load the film on the Supersampler and you are ready to go.
The expired film I used for this had much grain than what I expected and it looks so cool with the printed mask!

On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.
