It took me a while to finish a whole 24 photos on the film in my Splitcam but I now have the first roll back from developing.
The results are mixed. Most are rather dark – I think due to the 400 asa film and the British winter not mixing well. Here are 10 of the best.
I also struggled with my foggy brain to figure out the best ways to make use of the Splitcam’s abilities to screen part of the frame and so mix and match to create interesting effects. I did manage a few though …

[PHOTO] Sky Overlaps The Ground – I don’t know how the split overlaps so much- but it did. There’s obviously some bleed between the masks which go in front of the shutter.
I failed miserably to put an animals head onto Mr Creative’s shoulders – but I did make him the invisible man … a dream come true for him albeit only for a moment in time.

I took some double exposures …

I also took some straight photographs to see if this particular plastic lensed camera would have the same quirky appeal as the Holga. Actually the pictures turned out surpisingly well – especially considering how plastic and tacky the camera seems!
