I love square pictures and because I have several La Sardinas, I thought i build my Telefonbuch edition to a quadratic variation. You can do it for one roll and you return the La Sardina to the original state. Look after the jump how I did it!
black paper / carton
cross slotted screwdriver
At first i tinkered a mask for inside of the cam with the black paper. I cut one strip about the size I needed.
Then mark with the pencil on the strip both sides the height of the needed mask. I pulled a line and cut the spillover and divided it in two parts.
To make it as good a square as possible I measured the opening height and calculated how wide I needed the mask and marked it with the pencil.
I cut the two strips so they fit into the correct position and then glued them with the scotch tape into the camera.
We’re now finished inside the camera!
Now I want the viewer square too. So i screwed the viewer cap down from the camera with the cross slotted screwdriver. Do the scotch tape in front of the viewer that is almost square. Paint the scotch tape with the white marker and screw it back on the camera.
My square La Sardina is finished!
You can shoot the whole film normally and you get 36 pictures on your roll or you can rewind the roll after every picture a little bit, which is really easy with the La Sardina. Sometimes I rewind it too much but I get great overlapping pictures. Surprises like this is what Lomography is for and I take my next roll to get more of the same!
But written enough, here are the pictures:
Have fun modifying your La Sardina!
I began 2015 with my first foray into the exciting world of analogue photography. With La Sardina in hand, I flew to Hanoi, Vietnam tentative, insecure, yet excited beyond words. How did I fare for my very first roll of film?
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
