Stars in the Night Sky

I created a homemade star mask and took some photos near the Bow River. The second layer are night shots of the Calgary City Scape.

    Hello @vincentc63 - making a mask for the LC-A or LC-W is very easy. All you need is black electrical tape and scissors or punch-cutters. In this case, I used a star-shaped punch. First, open the camera before you load the film. Measure the size that you'll need to make the mask, and create a square of that size using the black electrical tape. Then punch or cut the desired shape, and tape it into place. Then load the film and shoot. You can add the mask before the first layer, or on the second layer, depending on what effect you want to achieve.

    Here is a tipster I wrote for a similar mask in the Sprocket-Rocket:
