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.

American Analog: Some Scenes From Market Street

Market St

I’ve been so busy working on my 3D City photo series this year that I haven’t had time to share any new 35mm shots. A few weeks ago I finally released the 3rd issue of my American Analog photo zine and have since gone out and shot a few rolls of film on my LC-A. Here’s a recent batch of expired Tri-X film (I need some fresh stuff) from a day spent walking along Market St in SF.

American Analog #2 is now available!

bothissues2

I launched my first Kickstarter project about a year ago and it’s given me an excuse to really focus on my black and white street work since then. Today I’m proud to announce that the second issue of my American Analog zine is available online! To create this issue I set a goal of traveling to NYC and spending 3 solid days walking EVERYWHERE and capturing whatever I could. It was much more stressful than doing a “best of SF” type book, like my first issue, but the end result turned out great!

If you’d like to pick up American Analog #2 (or save money and buy both issues) you can find them on my webshop or Etsy (for international buyers).
