Throw in Some Shapes

Fancy doing something different? Throw in some multiple exposures with shapes!

Well, i got a La Sardina as a beta tester and I thought that since it has the magical MX button, why not try it out… but in a different way!

I decided that, because this camera is all fishy, it would be a good idea to do some fishy cutouts.

What you will need :

1. scissors
2. card (black)
3. a stick of some kind
4. sticky tape
5. imagination

So cut out a really good shape and and stick it to the stick… and then click away. If your camera doesn’t have an MX button, all you need to do is take the pictures with your object up to the sky, then after the roll is finished, rewind it back to the beginning (leaving a bit out so you can reuse it) and then shoot whatever you want.

Here are some of mine… They’re not the best but they’re okay!

    Woow these are some really great photos :) I want to ask you where do you stick the shape? I am using Zenit EM so I don't have this MX function but can also achieve the same result right?
