What to have that 1 second suspense shot from your multi-lens camera? This could be it.
I thought of doing this at the hype of Oktokino Mini Movie submissions where shots were edited and posted as a moving GIF. This tip will create a 1 second suspense part when the picture is in motion.
-Any multi-lens camera (in my case I used my Oktomat to give the person enough time to change or if its an inanimate object, more time to change the direction to capture a different view or angle)
-Black tape (or any other material that you can use , just make sure light does not come in)
The process is easy. Just cut the black tape and cover the lens you want blackened out. In my case, I covered every other lens to create a mime-like expression of faces.
You can also use other materials and more colorful ones like red, blue, green and yellow instead of black to cover the lenses and create a Pop-art camera even in a Supersampler and Oktomat cameras. That’s why the cameras have many lens, be creative! make use of one lens different from the rest! =) Thanks for reading!
