Try out this quick and easy tipster that would spice up your photos with colour and contrast, making it even more unpredictable than before! Juxstapose two images in a unique way by double exposing your film with two completely different images!
The aim of this experiment is to overlay a primary image (scene) with a secondary image (subject). The secondary image would be that inside the holes/circles, where the primary image would be the negative space surrounding the holes/circles (the bigger area). I used my LC-Wide for this, but I’m sure it can be adjusted to any camera!
What you’ll need:
- Paper puncher
- Sellotape/ masking tape
Step 1: Cut out a piece of cardboard that would fit exactly over/inside the camera lens like a mask.
Step 2: Punch the desired amount of holes into the mask.
Step 3: Tape the edges of the mask to the camera.
Step 4: Load the film.
Step 5: Shoot the entire roll of film. (Tip: The first exposure to the film will be where the holes are, therefore try to shoot something colourful or a textured surface which will add contrast to the final image).
Step 6: Rewind the film (Remember not to rewind the film completely so that you can reload it into the camera)
Step 7: Remove the mask.
Step 8: Reload the film.
Step 9: Shoot the entire role of film. (Tip: The second exposure will fill up the negative space around the holes which is generally the bigger area, so now you can focus on a more prominent scene or subject.)
Step 10: Rewind the film and develop and prepared to be amazed! :)
Extra Tip: Don’t be scared to experiment even more! Afterwards I boiled my film in dishwashing water for about 5min which resulted into radical colours and stains! Enjoy! :)
