As we mature in our Lomographic lives, we forget about what it is like to be young and innocent. Remember when you didn't know what an aperture was? This is a short tutorial on some easy MX projects anyone can do.
Taking Multiple Exposures (MX) can be done many different ways. Each one can satisfy your lomoraphic desires. They can induce strange colors, scary emulsions, and surreal pictures. Drive deeper into lomography and see what results you can get.
What you will need
camera with B setting (like Lomography’s Diana Mini)
Film of any kind
Flash with color gels (Lomography’s Colorsplash Flash)
Shutter cable with a lock
Set up your location. The best MX pictures come out better on a dark background. Lighter colors show up more than darker ones. Set your camera on a tripod and hook up your shutter cable. Set the camera to B setting. Get your colorsplash flash and pick the colors you want to use for your picture. Turn the lights off and get the room completely dark. Find the shutter release cable and press it down and lock it in place. The shutter is now staying open. Stand in front of the camera, hold the flash out and point to toward yourself. Move to another area, turn the color wheel and splash yourself with another color of flash.
Or If you have a Lomo LC-A or a Diana Mini you can just keep triggering the shutter without winding the film. Usually more then 3 times over exposes the film but only your experimenting can tell you for sure.
One of the great things about the Lomo'Instant Camera is how versatile and creative it is, yet super easy to play with. Want to create beautiful unexpected multiple exposure shots? No problem — hit the MX switch and a ta-da! Your analogue experience instantly has a brand new world of possibilities!
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
We tidy up the house when we know visitors are coming. It’s not just common courtesy. Our homes represent how we live and how we want to be seen. More than that, the arrangement of furniture and ornaments may influence what we do during our downtime. Want hush or energy? Try the color palettes, textures and shapes in these curated blogs.
We love multiple exposures because no matter what scenes you choose to combine, the end result is always spectacular! Double (or triple) yourself up in a self portrait, or experiment with different patterns and objects when you shoot with your Lomo'Instant Wide and watch your amazing creations develop before your eyes!
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)
