The Supersampler "Extreme Cut"


For this modification you will need the following:

For this modification you will need the following:

  • 1 supersampler camera (d’oh!)
  • woodcut tool kit
  • scissors
  • nail clippers

This modification is irreversiable.

When you have the materials, this is what you have to do:

1. Look at your supersampler. Examine it. Get to know it. Like, real
intimate like. Understand the walls in the lens. Pay special
attention to them.

2. Pick up your woodcut tool kit. (Why use a woodcut? Because it’s
better than a regular cutter!)You can use a woodcutter for bizarre maneuvers which are most improbable with a regular cutter.

How to cut:

2.1 You can take the first cut diagonally from top to the sides.

2.2 The second cut can go from top to bottom.

3. After the surgery, the wall should be in the form of a triangle..
the exact shape depends on how you cut it..

4. Now, use the clippers to trim the parts you can’t reach with a woodcut..

5. After the surgery, the image would be exposed multiple times.
Taking pictures in broad daylight would be asking for heavy

The best light to take pictures with it is when the sky
is cloudy.. you got the picture right? :p

The don’t think just shoot principle would result in weird, absurd,
abstract images… but try to take pictures with one or several lenses
covered.. or just be creative! You could get some really awesome
images.. don’t forget, you can use cross processed expired film to get
more awesome pictures…!!!

    I really like the first shot of the horse. I think I'm gonna buy a supersampler just to do this. I like the idea of covering up one or multiple lenses to change the effect and also control how much light gets to the exposure. Thanks for putting in the time to make such a great tip.
