Lomo LC-A Fake Mega Vignette


Black corners for the advanced!

This one is dirty, cheap and easy!

Here’s how:

  • Take your beloved Lomo LC-A
  • Open the lens cover
  • Point it at your object of desire
  • Press the shutter button half the way!
  • Close the lens cover as much as you like
  • Press down the shutter button

Et voilá, you got yourself a fake mega vignette!

Possible uses:

  • just for fun!
  • creating unexposed areas for doubles (like fisheye-circles)
  • and to anything that you can think of!

After all, it doesn´t cost anything, try it out!
