Flipped Wall II


I revisited an earlier subject when finishing off the roll of film that was mostly shot in the snow. Previously I posted from this same location, but handled quite a bit differently. I like this version a lot better, and the red toning, for me, works better than the black and white.


These continue my series of half-frame photos from the Olympus Pen, of both the fliptych and diptych varieties; adjacent shots on the film-strip, taken as multiple frames with the intent to scan as single images. Click on the photos to see them larger.

    • Thank you Karen. I find it interesting to try and visualise these effects and then make them happen in the camera. The visualising part is my weak spot, but I am figuring it out.


  1. I bet you can’t wait to see how the film turns out when you take all these images. The waiting must be agonising. But what a result! You seem to have mastered the art of matching up the ‘pairs’ with precision. Both versions here are valid but on balance I like the colour one best – the shade of red-brown is particularly clever. Well done.


    • Hi Andy. There is a lot of anticipation waiting for the film. Usually it is a two day wait, but that often has fallen across a weekend which is always a drag… I like how the coloured one came out too. I am finding that losing the black band between shots in a darker zone usually works better than the opposite. Lining things up is tricky, and has a certain element of luck – getting close takes some skill, getting it dead on (especially when flipping the camera) is more than skillful. Practice helps of course, but luck plays its part.


  2. Years ago, I had terrible luck with color toning photos (in the darkroom) and to this day it’s still difficult for me. For that reason, I prefer the B&W version of these. However, I promise to return to the practice of color toning someday (soon?) to give it another try.
