The Splitzer is a great tool for taking control of your shots. Now, you can also start taking control of time! Find out how after the jump!
The concept couldn’t be easier: Splitz a certain subject during the day. Switch the Splitzer and take from the exact same position you had during the day, a night shot! This way, day and night will flow into each other. This can be done with almost every Lomography camera with a (homemade?) Splitzer! I used the Splitzer for the LC-A+.
The act itself is a bit trickier, but still doable for everyone. It’s tough to place your camera on the exact same location, let alone if there is 8 hours between them.
My advice: Use for the daytime shot the tripod which you will be using for the nightshot. Make a digital picture of the position and recognition points. For instance, use a wall. Look closely where on the stones you place your camera. Look through the viewfinder and remember what is just in or out of the picture an pay attention to your corners. Remember this for part 2 of the picture.
After the first shot, don’t wind! Use the MX button if your camera has one, like the LC-A+ and LC-Wide. And one more thing to pay attention to: The position of the Splitzer. A vertical splitz is the easiest. But if you Splitz at a different angle, remember this because it’s very easy to move the Splitzer. This will create a black spot and will reduce the area of the night shot.
Good luck and enjoy! Share your Spltz photo’s on your LomoHome en post a link in the comments. I’m very curious about what you’ll create!
