Doubles with My Computer Screen


Add some “techno” to your shots with this doubles technique!

  • Use the macro function of the Tunnel Vision lens to take detail pictures of thing on your LCD monitor or laptop screen. You need to hold the lens 25mm to 30mm away from the screen in order to get the gridded texture. Try holding the camera at an angle to the screen for some ‘blurry-sharp-blurry again’ action.
  • Shoot a whole roll with different colors on the screen, try it with menus and icons… anything and everything really. Don’t worry about camera shake – LCD screens are bright enough for the LC-A+ to use quick shutter speeds.
  • When you’ve filled the whole roll, rewind it then go out and shoot anything you like – try your favorite locations and usual haunts.

Your shots will then be suffused with a colored pixelated effect or overlaid with ghostly bitmapped images. Cool.

    I love the pixels :) I've used my display before as well for doubles, but they didn't turn out nice :(
