This is how we do it
The Splitzer is an extremely agreeable chap that plays very well with your Lomo LC-A+. It attaches securely to the front of the camera via the LC-A+'s handy accessory grooves.
Now, grab the index finger on your left hand and gently "pop" the joint. Stretch it out and massage it back and forth a bit. It's got to be nice and limber, as this little guy is going to operate the LC-A+'s multiple-exposure switch - which is the crucial key to the Splitzer's magic!
Position the Splitzer in your chosen position. You can shoot anywhere from one-half to one-eighth of a frame. Click your shot, and use that index finger to re-cock the shutter with the multiple exposure switch. After your shot, change up the Splitzer's position and fire again. What happens after that is entirely up to you, but allow us to toss six useful guidelines your way:
- You don't have to fill in every portion of the shot every time. There's nothing wrong with shooting half and leaving the other half a dark, mysterious sea of black.
- Toss in a flash every now and then. Nothing says "hell yes" like a half-flashed, and half-naturally-shot nighttime exposure.
- Don't get stuck in a rut. It's awesome to be totally (& pleasantly) shocked by your latest set of prints from the lab. Keep changing the formula! With the Splitzer, your multiple-exposure opportunities are basically endless.
- Shooting lots of double-exposures in the daytime will wash out your image. Maybe you don't want this. Or maybe this is that exact dose of random lo-fi that you're looking for. Give it a try either way.
- Never before have you been given total control over what is pictured on your lomograph. Take advantage of this! Use the Splitzer to tell a story or relate unrelated things on one single print.
- Want to get really random? Forget the multiple exposure switch altogether. Shoot a full roll of images – changing the Splitzer's position each time. Later on that day, the following day, next month or year, or whatever – reload the film and shoot it again; varying the Splitzer's position for each shot. You'll have NO idea of what the hell will be on your pictures but it's guaranteed to be an extremely good time – and pretty much guaranteed to get you at least a handful of absolutely mindblowing images.
