Doubles with My Love

8

When your better half is the über-talented lomographer jeabzz, you know you couldn't have asked for a better partner for endless, wonderful film-swaps!

I love film-swaps! I’ve done quite a few, all of the them with wonderful friends and talented photographers, some that I’ve been lucky enough to meet in real life, others, not yet. However, the dearest ones to me are the ones I did with my better half, the very talented JB or jeabzz. It is true that we have only done 3 film-swaps so far, but they all have turned out great and really special!

Our most recent film swap was Berlin-NY: we both visited Berlin and I took urban and graphic inspired shots and than gave the film to JB, who shot around the same theme after we moved to NY. It was our old world meeting the new one. I was very happy with the results:

One of our first doubles was literally inspired by the idea of your better half: we did splitzer doubles with our Lomo LC-A cameras. Splitzer doubles are amongst my favorite types of films swap, they produce awesome results; the only tricky thing is to make sure that you mark the film once you load it so you both shoot in-frame. The results were really beautiful and sweet and sometimes just incredible, as if one half frame was talking to other half, just through random luck:

However, my favorite collaboration with my Analogue Love was “Blossoming Summer.” This one was a bit overlooked but I just LOVED how it turned out! JB shot with his Nikon FM2 and a Lensbaby, which gives a wonderful, dreamscape flow and blur to the shots. Then I shot flowers and floral textures to give the photos even more dream-like feeling. I used my Diana F+ with the 35mm Back so I could get exposure on the sprockets too. Here are the results, that I truly love:

And to conclude, here are some quick tips that I’ve picked up from my friends for great doubles that you will love:

  • Shoot slide film and cross-process, helps the different layers come to life!
  • Mark the film when using the splitzer
  • For optimal results, use an LC-A or another camera with light meter and set the ISO to twice the speed of the film – set to 200 if you’re using 100 ISO film, for example.
  • Expect the unexpected!

The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.
