Half-frame advance on a Lomo LC-Wide camera

The LC-Wide is a wide angle version of Lomography’s famous LC-A+ camera. I love it’s wide angle lens, but my favorite feature of the LC-Wide is it’s half-frame advance. This feature is usually intended to be used with a plastic template that helps keep images from bleeding onto each other, but if you leave that template out and use the half-frame advance, you’ll get surreal montages of images bleeding into each other.

It’s best to only do 3 images at a time, or else you’ll get a really wide and short image… like this:

Half frame double exposures

Here are some other examples the half-frame images bleeding into each other. Keep in mind, these are all shot in camera, with no editing afterwards.
