Double Film in a Camera?

Have you ever thought of loading your camera with two films? Probably not. And to be honest, I think it wouldn't even work, or would it? But I had an idea similar to that, which anyone can do.

In this tipster à la rancliffhasenza, you will be shown a method how you can create a piece of art by adding a second film in your camera, or should I say small part of a second film? Let’s start, shall we?

1. First of all you need two rolls of film, I chose two color negative films, and of course a camera.

2. Now comes a very, veeeeeeeeery important detail. ONE FILM NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED BLANK! There are two ways to get that kind of film. You send off your film for development by mistake, like I did, or you just go to your local photo store and get it developed without getting a bunch of not existing pictures.

3. Now you possess one undeveloped and one developed film. Take your blank developed film roll and cut a rectangle with the measures 4cm x 1.5cm.

4. Now you have to stick that small piece of film into your camera. To stick it in, I use gum-stickers (you use these to stick a poster at your wall).

5. Load the camera with the other film, shoot it throught and bingo, double film photos are done. You’re welcome :)

    So you're only using a tiny bit of the developed film to stick as a mask? Just clarifying. Great idea :)

    Yeah, I've done that, but with a roll of processed film layered in a new roll of film. I was trying to create a film mask that will change with every picture. See the results here: http://www.lomograph(…)os/13835859

    @dearjme Yes it's just a tiny piece of a blank developed film, which is used as a mask in the kamera, sticked between lens and film :)

    Thank you all for the likes and comments! :)

    great minds think a like! i thought of the same idea when trying to make a mask in order to have a redscale effect. it was about a year ago (when i first took an interest in lomography) and i still haven't developed the roll, cant wait to see the results now.. thanks for sharing so now i have an idea of what mine might come out like, if my results are successful i'll try it again with a different camera and in different shapes
