Exposing Both Sides of the Film

Exposing Both Sides of the Film

First trial of EBS. Shot twice on correct side first, in a sunny/bright day, at ISO400(ISO800 film inside), with a splitzer. After finished a roll, reverse the film (in a dark-room). Then shot twice on redscale side as the same way as 1st run, in a cloudy/rainy day, at ISO200, with a splitzer. It's tough challenge because I had to wait for the best weather for each shots, and had to be careful with 'gaps' between frames. Each 4 images are shot at random in this case. Have a look at my article about this technique: http://www.lomography.com/magazine/tipster/2013/01/14/tipster-how-to-take-symmetrical-images-with-exposing-both-sides-of-the-film-ebs

    How did you get the frames to line up? I've been trying to work out in my head how I could pull this off.

    Thanks for the likes!!
    The alignment of frames is the most important point for EBS. Every time I 'm paying close attention in loading films into LC-A, both normal side and redscale side.
    I will submit an article about EBS soon (in Japanese first and in English later on) . I 'd like you to see it!

    @hodachrome I'm looking forward to reading it. I don't have a manual 35mm camera yet, so I was trying to work out how to get the camera to wind the film the same both times. I think after I flip the film I am going to cut the leader off and tape it back on after flipping it.

    You 're right. I usually cut off the leader (for a start). Tape it with spool and do the same on both sides. You 'd better mark the cog position, or record with digital camera. It will help you to load precisely.
