American Analog: Twitch.TV

Twitch.TV offices

My first editorial shoot is now live, you can read it on The Daily Dot. It’s a series I did about Twitch.TV’s new offices in SF. I thought it would be cool to use the photos to tell a story of the office’s vibe, rather than just one single image of each scene, so I used my LC-Wide camera to shoot wide angle shots while only advancing each shot half a frame (so the shots would overlap). This gives a sort of double-exposed border where each image blends into each other, meaning the whole film roll looks something like this:

Journey into Analog: Half frame hall of fame

The LC-A‘s bigger cousin, the LC-Wide, has some great features. I recently posted some black and white shots from mine, but I wanted to mess around with the LCW’s “half frame” mode. By setting your camera to half frame, it only advances half as much as normal mode for each shot, there’s also a half-frame setting for the lens, so it only lets in half as much of the image…

For these shots I wanted to see what the shots would look like if I only advanced each shot by half, but took full shots… basically resulting in 50% overlay for each shot. These are the results. Click through on each image for larger versions on Flickr.
