Tipster of the Week: Isn't It A Perfect Day for LomoSampling?

2010-04-11 18

The sun finally made its way back up there, together with the blue skies and puffy white clouds! With the chirping of the birds and the radiant colours of flower petals, we can now breathe easy as we dry our analogue souls which were left damp the last season and while you’re on it, we have our Tipster here that’ll surely make your day!

New WALL for Supersampler by life_on_mars

If you cut the wall (those things inside it, separating the four lens) in your Supersampler camera – it does not matter! You can make a new and much crazier, geometric LomoSampling with this one!

Do you remember The Supersampler - Extreme Cut Tipster done by specialblewah? Yes. It’s very great and it’s so cool, I was inspired on having my own version of it!

In Russia, it’s very much like the saying “To break – is not to build.” But Lomographers gets bored easily and can’t stand being idle, so with these in mind, I made a new wall for my Supersampler. After doing the extreme cut, you will need thick white cardboard and scissors. From the cardboard you cut out a strip with 0.5 cm in width and a length of approximately 7.5 cm and bend depending on your desired preference. Once inside the camera, you don’t need to worry about it falling off its place, since the film will go above it. But who knows, it might move a millimeter once you advanced to the next frame that would lead to unexpected results!
