The half-frame format of the LOMO LC-Wide enables you to create amazing dreamlike overlapped images.
The main reason of getting my hands on the LOMO LC-Wide is its ability to create overlapped images. Its wide-angle lens is attractive nonetheless. So now, how to go about capturing overlapping images? Well…It sure is an easy-peasy job. All you have to do is switch the Advancing Control Switch to “HF” mode and with the Lens Cover Switch to “FF” step, then fire the shutter away!
Easy peasy. But, please do not follow the instructions for the half-frame format in the manual that comes with the camera.
So let’s start shooting! The trick here is first take a single shot, continue shooting on the same frame, with yourself facing to the left or right, make a 180〫degree turn, place the camera at a slanted angle, you can even turning the camera upside down or point the camera to a different subject from the previous one. I bet you have just created some amazing overlapping dreamlike images!
The ultimate point here is as with the LOMO 10 Golden Rules: Don’t think, Just Shoot!. So start firing the shutter away. In this way, you can easily fire up to 72 times with one roll of film!
