That’s How I Did It!


How to make artistic photos by using a piece of slide film

A while ago i read in one of the tipsters that colurful photos can be knocked out by placing colorsplash flash filters into the camera. But frankly, this idea did not come very attractive to me. Because, in this way, all or a portion of these images would be in a color strip. And then I wondered how the outcome will be if I place a piece of color slide film into the camera. With this idea in mind I think a frame in the end of the roll could be appropriate. So I check the film rolls in my hand and all of a sudden I found this piece.

I placed this frame in to the camera upside- down position as the edge of the sprockets to be seen. Then I placed a new roll and start to shoot.

    What he means is that he's using a mask like in this article:…
    except instead of using those, he's using a piece of slide film.

    Except my dear colleague, you should have mentioned that one needs to overexpose shots in this case, since you have a full stop of film to get through, even if they are just bright colours.

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Happenings on Film: Graffiti Contest for Expo 2015

    On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
