Self-FilmSwap with Lomography Supersampler

If you're a user of film cameras, I am sure that you have already experienced multiple exposures, either by using the MX button on the cameras or just taking multiple shots. Otherwise, take one roll of finished film and put it in to the diffrent camera, or swap with other Lomographers. This tipster is one of the way to do it yourself, simple way to try.

I know there are lots of Lomographers who already know these procedures! How to do it is simple, if you give it a try!

  • 1. Load the film in the film camera
  • 2. Take any photos you want
  • 3. Finished one roll? Then rewind the film! (Be careful! if you rewind it with out noticing, all of the film could go in to the film megazine, if you don’t have film-puller, you could just fold the film ends! incase!! just be careful!)
  • 4. Load the finished film in to the other camera
  • 5. Take various images

That’s it! Looks like it takes many steps, but it is very simple to do!

I used this procedure and took the first images with the Lomography Supersampler and the second images with other film cameras, taking a total of two exposures, doing a “self film-swap project”

The results was more than I expected!

Doing double, triple, multiple exposures is fun! But When I used a Supersampler to make a four-cuts of similar images as background, and take one simple image, It made me to concentrate on to the object (In my opinion!)

Start off with the background images in the first roll, set an image or mood, Its another way to make the results interesting. I took lots of images of trees, and leaves in first-roll, so as a result when they overlapped with the other images it just popped out the second images in the photo

Sadly, every picture wasn’t great multiple images that I expected. Like the pictures at the bottom, they just come to be the simple photo or just part double exposed.

When taking bright pictures of something in the first or second roll, or when taking dark pictures the result comes to be one simple image without double exposures.

However, Just give it a try!Experimenting is always good! Don’t hesitate, just do it! Using silhouettes are another way to do!! How about using various fims with diffrent cameras? They could give us various feelings of results!

Thank you, and Enjoy :)
