Double the Fun with Sprocket Rocket
Double Panorama Technique by singleelderly
One feature of the Sprocket Rocket is that you can wind and rewind the film at any time. You’ll need to utilize this awesome function in this quickie tipster!
- First, pick an object you want to be at the center of your final photo (a building, pillar, whatever).
- Shoot one image (with the object you want at the center of your final photo on the far-right of the frame).
- Next, wind!! When you see the white dot, rewind a little until you can’t see it anymore.
- Then take a second photo (this time with the object you want at the center of your final image on the far-left of the frame).
- Wind on and continue shooting as normal. You’ve just made your first Double Panorama!
360 Degrees Roller Coaster with Lubitel 166+
360 Roller Coaster Technique by vita1104
Want a vertical 360° panorama? Why not take your Lubitel 166+ for a spin!
- Take your first photo from the ground, the next from a little bit higher and keep shooting until you have spun your arm all the way, taking 360° of photos. It’s just like riding a roller coaster!
- Just remember to leave some space to overlap photos by not winding all the way between each shot…and don’t forget to adjust the focus for different distances on your loop-the-loop journey!
Shoot Forever with Diana F+ and Diana 35mm Back
Shoot Forever Technique by vita1104
Decide a route and record it all on a whole roll of film with your Diana camera!
- Just take a photo, wind on, walk forward a couple of steps and take the next photo.
- Test how many times you need to turn the knob to leave space for overlapping the next shot.
Note: Because the taking spool gets thicker as you progress through your film, the distance you need to turn the knob needs to be slightly decreased as you go. Have fun!
