Try winding on a 6×6 image as though your winding a 6×4.5
It all started out as more of a rookie mistake than an actual technique, as I am new to the Lomo way of life i was bound to make some mistakes but surprisingly my main mistake was a blessing. When I received my new Holga I had set it up, in what i thought was the correct way, and so I went out taking pictures of everything I liked.
It was only towards the last few that I realised what I had been doing, I had been following the numbers to wind on 6×4.5 pictures despite having used the 6×6 mask. I decided to develop the film anyway as the 8th golden rule of Lomography says “You don’t have to know beforehand what you captured on film” and heck what a surprise it was!
The images overlapped causing these very distinct lines were the edge of both the current and the previous/next image cross mixing colours and objects as though the image had collided and mashed together.
One of my favorite images from this accident/miracle piece of film is an image I took on its side and unlike the others the images don’t blend but there is a very distinct edge to the separate images. Only now the edge of the previous image is on the bottom of the picture having turned it to the right perspective.
This tip can be used to create one long image or, as i have done, create separate images and just play about with it get some interesting and artistic effects going.
