Testing Masks

I feel like a mask project coming on so I have been testing my old masks... Transparency masks, in a way, decrease the amount of sunlight that reaches the film so I have been testing them with my Dianas, which are already not very capable of capturing light.

Some of these shots I double-exposed on a cloudy afternoon both on cloudy setting and some I shot on a fairly-bright partially-cloudy morning. Then I pushed the film one stop when I developed it.

Obviously, Dianas + masks for singles/doubles are best on a clear sunny day.

    I really like the lines of words and diagonals over your portrait on this one.

    I can't believe how incredible this is. I can't wait for the project if these are just the tests. You are a genius, I would love to know how you did that, any chance of a tipster or article on this?
