Romantic Photoshoot Tips : LC-Wide Panorama Couple


Are you getting bored with your usual couple shots? Do you want to try something different? Go get your LC-Wide, and let’s try a Romantic Panorama Photoshoot!

To celebrate this year Valentine’s Day, i tried to do something different with my loved one. My addiction to panoramas made me come out with this idea. So i took my LC-Wide, and ask her a favor to do this unique couple shots with me.

You need a camera that is able to do a half frame format or to do overlapped panorama shots. For example LC-Wide, Diana Mini, or La Sardina. Perhaps Diana F+ and Holga can do this too. But because i used the LC-Wide, i will explain how to do this in my own way.

The idea is basically like this:
Set the LC-Wide to half frame format, but DON’T use the half frame masking. Otherwise you won’t make an overlapped panorama shot. You shoot a self-portrait from the place you are standing, with your daily clothes or perhaps you wear some unique clothes to make it more fun.
Wind the film only half frame, and ask your loved one to bring the camera anywhere she likes, and she will shoot a self-portrait too.
Do this again on the next day, and repeat again and again until you both are satisfied.
Don’t forget to wind it full frame after 4 or 5 shots to make it not too long to scan.

You can do many improvements with this idea. May be you can do different funny or cheesy poses or do it with different filters. It’s up to you. Or it’s up to your couple!

    @hervinsyah bisa, caranya foto 1 frame tapi frame bagian kanannya ditutup. wind the knob to the next frame, and then rewind it back half way through. hehe. mirip bikin panorama aja pake lasardina sajaaa
