Here’s how to achieve those great splitzer images without spending a cent! It’s so simple and easy!
Want to chop up your photos into halves or quarters, or achieve double-exposure results without over-exposing? Then you need a splitzer. But wait, I hear you ask, they don’t make a splitzer for my camera! Worry not! You have everything you need with you right now!
- A Lomo Camera (I used my Diana Mini, my Sprocket Rocket, and my Fisheye 2)
- The lens caps for same
- A box-cutter, Xacto knife or sharp pair of scissors
Lay your lens cap on your work surface, and cut out a hole, either a half- or quarter-circle shape or whatever shape you like.
Put the lens cap back on the camera, shoot, then twist the lens cap 180 degrees and shoot again!
The lens caps work great as they fit your camera lens perfectly and don’t slide off. The Fisheye’s soft rubber cap even lets a little bit of light through, making for interesting and unpredictable results.
