Wearing a mask can be very useful and it varies depending where we are: a mask of a superhero when you’re with the one you’d want to protect, a cheerful kind of a mask for those days when you don’t want anyone to see you crying or you can employ a mask of childishness for you and your camera!
Holga selfmade mask fun! submitted by miaumiau-wildekatze
I know there have been a couple of mask modifications posted for the Holga already but it’s such fun I can´t emphasize and encourage everyone out there enough to go and do their own masks right now!
It’s so simple and gives great results!
What you need
- a transparent foil, for instance for overhead projectors
- permanent markers
- the 6×6 or 6×4.5 mask of your Holga
- your Holga, of course
Draw a bunch of 6×6 (or 6×4.5) squares on the foil (you can use the mask and just draw around the outlines) with a permanent marker.
Learn from mistakes
Keep the foil clean or you´ll have hair and dust on your pictures (can be charming though!) Keep in mind that the mask will be reversed as you take the pic ;)
For sharper lines and masks you can print a graphic on the foil!
