Tipster of the Week: Masks for Everyday Amusement

Wearing a mask can be very useful and it varies depending where we are: a mask of a superhero when you're with the one you'd want to protect, a cheerful kind of a mask for those days when you don't want anyone to see you crying or you can employ a mask of childishness for you and your camera!

I know there have been a couple of mask modifications posted for the holga already but its such fun I can´t emphasize and encourage everyone out there enough to go and do their own masks right now!
Its so simple and gives great results!

What you need:



a transparent foil, for instance for overhead projectors

permanent markers
scissors
tape
the 6×6 or 6×4.5 mask of your holga
your holga of course

Step 1:
Draw a bunch of 6×6 (or 6×4.5) squares on the foil (you can use the mask and just draw around the outlines)
with a permanent marker.

Step 2:

For instance design a frame, hearts, stars, a monster, whatever you can come up with!

Step 3:

Step 4:



Put the mask with the foil into its place in the holga, load film and shoot away!

Learn from my mistakes:

Keep the foil clean or you´ll have hair and dust on your pictures (can be charming though!)
Keep in mind that the mask will be reversed as you take the pic ;)

Tip:
For sharper lines and masks you can print a graphic on the foil!
