Tipster of the Week: Apertures of Different Forms and Sizes

The greatest tips can sometimes be born out from one simple question a Lomographer can ask and our tipster this week provides a remarkable solution!

Hand made Splitzer for the Fisheye 2 by life_on_mars

I asked myself why does Holga, Diana+ and the LC-A have a Splitzer made available only for them and nothing for the Fisheye2? I decided to eliminate this problem and made ten various handmade splitzers out of a cardboad paper.

Materials:

  • Coloured cardboard
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive tape
  • And a good mood and some good songs

Begin by cutting a strip of a cardboard which will be equal to the diameter of the lens barrel. Combine the edges with some tape to form a cylinder. Сut out a circle that is as big as the Fisheye2 lens, this will then be your main cover of your splitzer.

You can cut out different patterns, shapes of any form or the size. You can cut out any symbols or letters that you’ll love to see in your photos.

The convenience of having an MX switch will make it easier to use different kinds of your handmade Splitzer. You can combine those different patterns/shapes on one shot to create interesting results. I also recommend using The Ringflash and/or the Colorflash for that added wicked effect!
