I was advised by a relative LC-Wide veteran (explorette) that I could still flick my LC-Wide to half-frame mode, even if I didn't have the mask with me. She didn't tell me what the effects would be, but I was more than happy with the results.
On an impromptu lomo meet-up the other day I decided to try a tip I had been given and get creative with the LC-Wide. I didn’t know what the results would be when I started, but I guess if I had really thought about it then I should have known it would be an endless stream of shots, all slightly overlapping each other.
To achieve the results you can see below, all you need to do is set the LC-Wide to HF mode at the bottom and when you open the shutter, do it to the half frame point. Normally to get half frame shots with the LC-wide you need to put one of the frame masks into the back of the camera but in this case, just don’t bother and load your film as though you were just going to shoot full frame. Voila, your negs will come back from the lab as one long strip (I decided where to cut mine for the purpose of scanning. Just don’t forget to tell them not to cut the negatives for you!)

For the past three months, I've been living alternately between three cities: Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta. I'm originally from Bandung. I now work in Bogor, sometimes in Jakarta. I could be in Bogor on a Friday, Bandung on a Saturday, and Jakarta on a Monday. Shuttling between these three cities, I don't forget to document what I see and experience with my LC-Wide.
