Traffic Lights in My Photos

2011-06-17 16

The traffic lights are signaling devices which are placed at the intersections of the streets, but also within your Lomographic cameras.

For this trick you need:

  • A piece of cardboard
  • black marker
  • sellotape
  • colored cellophane paper
  • punch
  • desire to have fun
The steps that you have to follow are:
  1. To paint a cardboard in black
  2. With the punch you have to make holes wherever you fancy
  3. With the papers of cellophane fill the holes using sellotape
  4. Once the mask is done, then the next step is to put the cardboard into the camera (as it’s shown in the picture)
  5. Then you have to take 36 pictures without thinking a lot since only a small circle will be seen on every picture.
  6. Once the 36 photos are taken, you have to relocate the spool in the camera again.
  7. Now you just have to wait for the results to surprise you!

    how do you relocate the spool? just wind it back in a darkroom and reload?

    I marked the biginning of the film and when it's finished I put it again considering the marking! If you use smena it's a possibility reload in a darkroom.
