Split your spinner shots


Well we all know the 10 Spinner 360° techniques featured in the Spinner microsite, but we Spinners are not content to stick with the rules. Remember Golden Rule no.10? Forget all the rules! So I spinned it out with a friend and discovered a new trick here!

Taking a 360° or longer panoramic shot is cool, but it just doesn’t satisfy me anymore.So we were thinking, what can we improve upon the existing Lomographic tricks? Oh right! How about the Double Exposure and Splitzer? How can we do it with the Spinner though?

Actually it’s pretty easy, all you need are:

• Lomography Spinner 360º x 1
• 35mm film (whatever you look, slide, negative or b&w)
• A pair scissors
• Black tape

How to shoot?

• Cover the lower half or upper half of the spinner lens with the black tape
• Install the film, and shoot the whole roll
• When you are done, flip the shutter to R and rewind the film (be careful not to rewind the whole roll, leave the film tail so you can reuse the film again)
• Peel the black tape off the lens, and tape it on the other half of the lens.
• Shoot the whole roll again

In this trial, I did the dobule with vita1104 and it works! Each of us shot each half of the film. We look forward to see you improving this technique! For example, shoot one spin shot and rewind and shoot another one right away! Or different shooting angle, or a better splitzer. Here you go the Spinner splitzer technique, enjoy!

Oh one more thing, try to shoot under daylight, when shooting with the slow spinning mode in low lighting condition, the stripe of light tends to leak on the other half of the film too.

    "When you are done, flip the shutter to R and rewind the film (be careful not to rewind the whole roll, leave the film tail so you can reuse the film again)"

    Is there a math so we can know how much we have rewinded? 1 wheel rewind correspond to how much film rewinded?

    Nice tutorial! Thanks

    papifelps, i'm answering for the original author, it's very difficult to do an accurate count especially as film roll gets thick as you advance more. so i will say, just experiment, and share your count with us!
