Doubles with Flowers: A Very Useful Resort

7

Do you get a film swap proposal and you don't know what to shoot? You try to find your way around it, but you don't come up with anything. Well, a good way to solve this are flowers!

Approximately one year ago I had a traffic accident, and I could not move my left arm. I had a long list of film swaps (double exposures with other people) to do, and more and more kept accumulating.

I was frustrated because I wanted to take photos so badly, but I could not take them because I couldn’t move an arm, imagine the disaster… All the photos would have come out blurry.

What did I come up with to solve this? Shoot flowers. I didn’t have to move too much because my objective was to shoot macros. In order to do it I used a tripod and a SLR camera.

Some months ago I did a couple of tests with two swaps, one with myself and the other one with a French girl friend, and the results were good.

Then I cheered up. This is what you’re going to need:

  • An SLR camera.
  • A film for doubles.
  • Tripod.
  • I used close-up lenses in order not to move too much.
  • Set a higher ISO on your camera (just like every time you shoot doubles).
  • Shoot!

I leave you with some examples of what you can get.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
