Pop Art with the Pop 9

When you find that your portraits are becoming dull, liven them up by adding texture! I find that the best way to do this is to shoot doubles with a Pop 9 first then your trusty LCA after, the results of which are absolutely mind-blowing!

When you find that your portraits are becoming dull, liven them up by adding texture! I find that the best way to do this is to shoot doubles with a Pop 9 first then your trusty LCA after, the results of which are absolutely mind-blowing!

This little plastic camera sure packs a punch! 9 identical photos in 1 frame give it its Warhol-ish appeal. It also includes a built-in flash but I always use it with ambient light, which is perfect for giving your doubles texture. Get your favorite film preferably one with low iso so that it’s easy to underexpose. Load it up and think of a theme to shoot like signs, letters, numbers, or anything that catches your fancy. Don’t forget to shoot with the Pop 9 upside down so that it will be in the correct orientation when you double it.

Rewind, take care not to wind it all in unless you have a film picker handy! Shoot around and be pleasantly surprised with portraits that pop out and come alive! If you’re feeling extra adventurous and daring, you can go with triple exposures for triple the fun! Just take care not to overexpose it too much so that everyone can see your Pop 9 art in all its glory!

    Nice one! I especially like the header pic and the first one in the gallery.
    I've tried Pop9/Smena-Doubles once but most often one camera was stronger than the other so I got lots of pure Pop9- and pure Smena-shots. Of course also some nice doubles that I really like. Well, I should try it with my LCA again.
