An image-slicer (often referred to using Lomography’s product name “Splitzer”) is a multiple exposure masking filter, that allows you to shoot multiple exposures within one frame, only exposing some part of the frame each time. A clear soft-surround filter causes a soft blur vignette to your images.

Items You’ll Need:

  • A pair of scissors
  • Tape measure
  • Black mat board paper or soft cardboard paper 
  • Clear plastic, like a sheet protector (for the clear soft-surround filter)
  • Black electrical tape
  • Clear tape (for the clear soft surround filter)
  • Pen

(Note: For the examples below I used a lighter colored cardboard paper for easier viewing)

STEP 1: Measure the length around your lens, and the width of it. For this example I’m using my Holga, but you can do these filters on any cameras with a similar lens:

Spooky and Surreal Black & White Landscapes by Matt Pringle


Born: 1978
Location: Stirling, Scotland.
Photographing Since: 2008
Cameras: Kiev 60, Minolta Autocord, Holga 120N, Holga Pinhole.
Fav films: Ilford HP5+, Kodak Tri-X.

Matt on why he shoots film:


"The vast majority of my photography is focused on black and white cityscapes or seascapes. I predominantly shoot on medium format film. My reasoning for shooting on film are twofold. Firstly, there is the purely aesthetic quality of shooting medium format film. I find the tones and grain of film to be very complimentary to the style of photography I aim to produce. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, is the slower, methodical pace of medium format photography. I think I needed that time and space in order for my photography to evolve and develop.”

Matt on his black and white work:


"The images I create are very personal to me, and most probably say more about me as a person, and in a more articulate way, than I could ever express in words. I value feeling and emotion in my work above all else and I hope this comes across in the images I create. Photography is a great escape for me and I often try to capture feelings of peacefulness and solitude in my work. The empty streets, the heavy fog, the quietness of the early morning: it’s a world which I’m very happy to inhabit - far removed from the realities of modern day life.”

Film Photographer Spotlight: Jody Miller

image

Name: Jody Miller
Age: Born 1951
Location: Los Angeles, California, USA
Photographing For:  since the age of 9

Cameras: My equipment consists of many film cameras including a Pentax 67II, Hasselblad, Fuji 6x17, many Holga and Diana and Fujipet toy cameras, and I just purchased a 4x5 field camera.

Fav films: Mostly color negative, Kodak Portra,  with a few Fujichrome Velvia shots thrown in. I do shoot B&W Tri-X in my toy cameras too.

Jody on why she shoots film:

"I was born in 1951 and have been making photographs since about age 9, when I was given a Kodak Brownie roll film camera. I still have many of the images I took with that camera! I currently live in the Los Angeles area and am still avidly making art with my cameras.

My interest in photography got serious around my late teens and was given a great push when I was able to study at the Ansel Adams workshop in Carmel, California in 1982. It was the last year Ansel was able to teach before his death in 1984, and I consider myself very lucky to have spent some time with some of the best photographers of our times. Film is the medium that I learned on and continues to be an unbeatable medium for making art. Film is slow, deliberate, and thoughtful, and for those reasons I believe it makes for better art, a lot of the time. There is a softness, a “wetness” if you will, to film that digital just does not have for me and never will. I do shoot with digital cameras but still love my film cameras intensely.
