  • A Pinhole Exposure Guide Neck Strap

    A Pinhole Exposure Guide Neck Strap

    I don't know about you, but I never seem to remember all the little things that are needed for each camera. Thankfully, my Diana Multi Pinhole Operator came with a handy little Exposure Guide, but I couldn't seem to fit it into the camera so I would always have it with me. I used Photoshop, cut and pasted a few things, and viola! A neck strap equipped with an exposure guide.

    Do Doubles on Different Sides of Your Film!

  • Fantasy Double Exposure

    Fantasy Double Exposure

    I felt that life is repetitive and I am consumed by work! I would like to hold my camera and shoot something in order to let off some steam but I know that my photos are quite ordinary. Once, when I had completed another roll of snapshots, I decided to rewind the film and produce a roll of special double exposures.
