A 35mm Effect on Medium Format Film!

This tip consists of creating a 35mm effect in while using medium format film. What you will need is a piece of a 35mm film exposed - but without nothing on the film, something to fix the film with, some medium format film and of course a camera as well.

What you need to do is to fasten the a part of a 35mm film in your camera right over the middle where the light comes through when you open the shutter. Once you have done this you just load a medium format film like usual over it and shoot away!

Note: It may be a bit harder to forward the film with this trick.

    Its an interesting effect to be sure, especially if you want the look but don't want to invest in a 35mm back for the Holga or Diana, but I'd like to see what a similar effect would look like if you used the film as a stencil and painted the sprocket holes onto a mask, so it would cover up the area of the film that wouldn't have been exposed anyway if it was a piece of 35mm.
    Or just partially mask it off, so it just creates a shadow effect.

    ......*grabs a piece of plastic, film, and some paint*
