Tipster of the Week: Double Stacked Combinations

12

A burger isn't considered as such until there's a patty stacked between the buns and you can't argue with that, really. What about putting two identical things together? Well, there will be a homogenised magic of sorts will likely to occur. How could that be? Better pay close attention to this now as our Tipster will reveal everything you need to know this week!

Do you have a camera that isn’t capable of multi exposure, but you want to do that? Do you think your negatives deserve a better life than lying in a box away from light? Then power up your scanner, clean your films from dust and have fun with multi-layered film scans!

Yesterday I was scanning my last fresh rolls from the lab negatives with my new scanner and I thought that, after this brief part of their life, the destiny of my beloved rolls was to stay stored in the darkness of a box, waiting for someone to rediscover them in the future or only for a rescan if I lose my digital copies.. but as they’re beloved, I wouldn’t let them rot in that box, so I figured out a way to extend the fun with them even when out of the camera and already developed!!

That’s easy, and it will also give you the possibility of multi exposures, even if your camera cannot do that!

All you need is a scanner (or anything that can bring them on your computer) and a bit of creativity! You just put a strip of developed film on the scanner and another on over that! Scan them and..voilà! Multi exposures on the go! It’s fun and gives your cameras new possibilities!

The possibilities are limited just by the number of combinations you will be able to do!

There are some things to remember:

  • Films stop light! Do not stack too much negatives or it will be nearly impossible to scan them!
  • You can mix film types, but remember that types and developing mode will make them positive or negative (or b/w of course) so pay attention to what you mix, but don’t let it stop you from experimenting different types stacked one on another!!
  • If you’re using a scanner with plastic containers for film, you will be able to stack only a certain number of strips (or the plastic container won’t close!). But no worries, wanna stack more? Stick them to a window as suggests spiltink, but do it with stacked films!

Here some examples:

I hope that you’ll find it useful!! Thanks for reading and remember, the fun never stops with Lomography!

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
