Long Portraits


To make a clever portrait just stretch it long and give me more, more, more!

This is a cool one that I stumbled upon playing with my new Diana F+, I sorta didnt know how many clicks to click when advancing my 35mm. I did like a 180 and yet when I got the pix back they were all kind of too close. The fun was though that I had been taking different portraits of the same person and therefore I got these long multiple images with the same person in 3 different poses, oh what a dream.

So I spread my wings from there and decided to try it with different color flashes, different angles, and different things. This works great with pets, and boyfriends, and stuffed animals, and drag queens, and hags, and creepy mannequins, and whomever or whatever else. Remember though that you probably need a scanner and you must use a camera like the diana or the holga that just lets you choose have far to advance before using that shutter again.

Anyways enjoy my gallery, I think it is particularly cute to print these out and frame them and give them to the person you love, its the best.

    Great! I didn't know that you can choose how far you advance the film with those cameras... I really need an Holga! Great work!
