When boredom comes along, you must Flip It. Your camera, I mean! The results: lovely reflection-like images that look like a parallel universe.
Before I launch into the complexity of this exercise, I have to warn you that this requires advanced skills in shutter-pressing, for it doesn’t only involve your index finger, but your thumb as well! Am I kidding, you ask? Of course I am! This has to be one of the easiest Tipsters ever, but I’m sharing it step-by-step anyway.
• Snap a photo of your Lomographic desire
• Click the MX button if your preferred camera has one. In my case, I worked with Dimitry, my LC-A+.
• Flip your camera upside-down on a full 180º angle. Using your thumb, press the shutter to snap your second exposure. Ta-daa!
For variations, you don’t have to fully flip your camera by 180º all the time, you can flip it any way you like.
Also, this flipping exercise goes extremely well with the LC-A+ Mega Vignette Tipster published a while back by zark. Here are a few photos using the Strong Vignette + Flipped Out Combo.
So go flex those thumbs or stand on your head if you must. Any method is sure to be fun. I say Flip It. Flip it Good!
"Magical" here means that every time I use the Diana F+, the results are always beyond both my expectations and imagination. That's why I always use it when I feel like doing something different. It has never failed me since day one; I even always bring this camera during my trips!
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.
