Tipster of the Week: Double the Sprockets, Twice the Fun!

Here's what will happen if you use more than one 35mm film on your shots!

70mm Holga by adamscott

You’ll need: two 120 film spools, tape, scissors, two rolls of 35mm film. A changing bag isn’t big enough so use a pitch black dark room. Tape the beginning of both rolls of 35mm film on the first 120 film spool and place into the winding part of the Holga. Go into the dark room and completely unwind all the film out of the 35mm cassettes and cut it at the end. Make sure you keep the beginning of the films in the winding part of the camera as it can get messy. Find the end of the 35mm films and stick to the second 120 film spool. Wind all the film onto the second 120 film spool and place in the left film chamber. Make sure the film counter (red window) part on the back of the Holga is completely covered. All 35mm Holga rules apply e.g.: taping up the Holga and 30 to 35 clicks for each frame (or one and a half turn of the winder). When you’re the film, go back to the dark room and you’ll need: two plastic film cases and silver foil. Open the back of the Holga and un-tape the 35mm film from the 120film spools. Rollup each film and place into separate film cases and cover the film cases with silver foil so no light can destroy your shots. Go to your lab and explain that the film is loose in the cases and tell them how to process it (negative or transparency). Either have them printed on a contact sheet or scanned the negative yourself. Good Luck!!!

Lots could be tried, different films, lenses and so on. Maybe you’re asking if this is possible with the Diana+, yes it is! and if you’re successful on doing so, share and upload your shots on this post! Same goes for any tips here, why don’t you give them a try! For any new Lomographic formulations and experimentations, they should go here and you might find yourself as the new Tipster of the Week and receive piggies!

    I thank you Adam, because it's when I saw these shots in the Holga book "the world through a plastic lens" that I decided to be a lomographer. These shots greatly inspired me.

    Not that easy to realize, at least my first try didn't work so good. But I will try again and I hope to have a better result then! Btw. how do you scan it? I cut the negatives, fixed it on the left and on the right of the picture and then scanned it. The changeover does not look as good as in your examples, see submitted picture.

    @adamscott I tried again and I'm currently scanning. But how do you get it to scan so that the overlapped parts of the two films will come out in color and not white because of the layering?
