Instax + Redscale + Sprockets : Faking it

I wanted sprocket holes on my Instax back. Crazy? Oh yes it is!

So I cut a strip of exposed negatives, stick it onto the insides of the “Diana Instant Back+”http://microsites.lomography.com/diana/products/instant and hoped they will turn out fine. I chose a couple of frames from a strip that was a bit messy, hoping by doing that I can get some crazy wild double exposures! Yeah … that means the photo I take now will ‘double expose’ with the shot that I took ages ago on that particular 35mm strip.

With the strip in it will definitely require more light to get a decent exposure. So I mounted the Diana F+ flash and used the red/orange color errmm … what do you call that? Gel? Color filter? Anyway, it’s one of those coloured thingie that came with it.

So these are the crazy redscale-looking photos with sprocket holes. Hahaha. Yeah I know it’s cheating but hey … it’s real fun!!! I also know that you probably won’t be able to figure out what are in some of the photos.

    Can you do this in a 120-mm film?

    @jsanjuan : You mean using 120 film instead of the 35mm? Of course it is possible. Have fun!
