We all know that the Lomography Supersampler is four times the fun compared to a regular plastic camera. But what if we do doubles with it, and use two masks? 4 lenses x 2 exposures x 2 masks = 16 times the fun!
For this technique, we will need the following:
- Your Supersampler (or any camera actually)
- A roll of your favorite film
- 2 DIY acetate masks (1 positive and 1 negative)
Using an acetate, cut out two pieces that matches the size of the frame of your camera. With a design of your own, draw a pattern (using permanent marker) on one of the acetates. Put the other acetate over the first one, and create a negative version of the first pattern (shading the clear areas).
Attach one of the acetate masks over the frame, load the film, and shoot. In loading the film, make sure that you mark the first two frames for reference purposes.
When done, rewind the film (but not completely) and unload it from the camera. Remove the acetate mask and replace it with the other one.
Using the marked first two frames as basis, load the roll again. Be sure that the position of the first two frames matches with the marks you have initially made. Shoot at will.
If all goes well, that should produce patterned images such as below. I hope you become more creative in making the masks! Enjoy!
