Criss-Crossed Mask

Check out our Doubles story: Lomographer Shanghied from Richmond, Virginia sent me this rewound film with no specific instruction - just a note that said “Use with this mask”. I was not sure about how I’d put the mask so as not to overlap his first shots but I figured what the heck - Lomo knows no rules. I need not worry.

Criss-cross n.
1. A mark or pattern made of crossing lines.
2. A state of being at conflicting or contrary purposes.

1. Get a pencil and ruler for tracing.
2. Create a diagonal/criss-crossed mask using any cardboard.
3. Carefully use a cutter to get the desired cut-out.
4. Put a mark so you’d know which side you’ll use.
5. Place the mask before loading the film.

Here are the results of our doubles:

P.S. Make sure to secure the mask properly or else… this will also happen to you:

    Nice idea - you could also do it with different shapes I guess to give even more differing effects! :)
