When shooting in halfframe or square mode with the LC-Wide, you're supposed to use a mask to get proper images. But what if you just ignore this rule (as us Lomographers are so good at doing)?
Just take out the masks from inside your LC-Wide, switch the mode to halfframe, fully open the lens cover (or close the lens cover a bit to make smaller overlapping parts) and shoot forever to get 72 shots blended halfway over each other on 36 frames – It makes every lab operator cry if you order more than just the uncut developed film, which is the way to go if you want to get a big part scanned in without the best parts cut through. Then you can decide for yourself which regions of the negative are best and use the DigitaLIZA to get splendid blended images. Or just see what you get when your LC-Wide photos come back from the lab!

Architectural photographer Christopher Payne documents America’s industrial heritage with his large format images. For his project "Asylum," he visited 70 abandoned psychiatric hospitals across to country between 2002 and 2008.
It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
