Masking with the Diana F+

Masking with Lomography Diana F+ using paper cut outs.

Masking is a great experiment and as I said before, pretty addictive, therefore for this experiment I tried to use a different variation.

The steps are listed below:
1. I drew the star on a piece of black paper.
2. After I cut it out, I placed that piece of paper (where I cut the star out from) inside the Diana +F and shot the roll.
3. By using a pin, I made 4 fine scratch marks of where the four points of the stars were. This would help me align the cut out star perfectly (…well almost) for the double exposure.
4. Shot the roll.

And that is pretty much it!

    Even when the second shots weren't oriented well the results are still interesting. Good job!

    Just sharing guys.

    I actually did this technique not to produce multiple exposures but to force some vignettes on a sprocket shot. I envied the Blackbird, Fly (http://blackbirdflycamera.com) since it produces vignettes and at the same time sprockets. What I did was, I cut out an oval-shaped card board then placed it inside my Holga 120 and loaded a 35mm film for it to produce sprockets and the same vignettes.

    here's a sample shot:

    Really good tipsters. I've never tried masks in my Diana as I worry that the whole roll will just look exactly the same, but with the double exposure element of this, it looks very striking!
