How to get something duplicated onto each image on a film. A piece of text, an image or anything!
Find something you want to have on every image, this could be what ever you want, either text or image. Format it to the right size for your camera – my examples are in my Holga and they are approximately 800 × 700 pixels. It’s easy to work out. If you get several things you want to experiment with onto one page, then you won’t waste a whole piece of acetate on one tiny picture.
IMPORTANT: You have to format it into black and white – otherwise it will be really blurry.
Once you’ve chosen your text /image:
1) Print text/image onto Acetate
2) Fix to the back of the camera with black tape
3) Load film over it
