NIKKOR Zoom 35-70mm lens
Ilford PAN 400 film
I'm getting the la sardina. Do you have any tips to use it? It's my first lomography camera so I'm a bit clueless. This is probably a silly question but how do you layer the pictures on top of each other like I saw in some of yours? Great pictures by the way!
Hey! Thanks for getting in touch, I just saw this message, sorry if it took so long to reply. Well so far I only shot two rolls with La Sardina since I got it in January but I can say it is a great camera. The lens is quite wide so that’s why some photos appear slightly deformed but not quite like a fisheye does so for me that’s pretty cool. Also the camera has three shutter options: normal, bulb, and mx. The mx is the one that allows you to do multiple exposures which is the layering effect you’re looking for. For this I have a tip which is to take a darker photo first and then a brighter one over it. That allows the film being less exposed leaving the chemicals still active for the next exposure. As far as I am experimenting with this feature still, I noticed that no matter what photo you took first the other one seems visible only in the darker areas of the first photograph for example in shadows, a dark hair, etc. If you’re getting one of these cameras I highly recommend you to buy the one that comes with the flash ‘cause in low light situations the camera solely doesn’t work fine, unless you have a higher ISO film in which case you have to be extra careful with sunlight and overexposing that photo.
Well there goes all my knowledge about this, hope it answers your questions, go out and take photos and experiment yourself ‘cause that’s the greatest thing about film photography you don’t know what’s gonna happen (unless you are a super film photography nerd). Looking forward to see the results ey!!!! Have fun!
