SPLIT-CAM

9

First I did not know what to do with this yellow-black plastic cam, which I’ve got as a promotional gift when I subcribed to a photo-magazine.

This camera use a double fade out lens and a multiple exposure technique, and this makes it possible, to make one part of the pic dark, and to image an other motiv on the other part of the pic.

But as sheep’s heads on a dog’s body are not really my style, put it away and forgot it for a while. Then I had the idea, to make double exposures, when turning a camera upside down,and this camera seemed to be the right one. O.k., little black shutters are a bit shaky, and you have to hold them on her place, but it works.

Now my split-cam is used so often, that it lost the color of her SP! as you can see.

    the cam is fun because it is so cheap plastic... but mx-mode allows you to combine different things like oyu have done in your beautiful gallery
    like it!!
