Let’s be free! The Diana F+ and the 35mm Back are designed to give you freedom over the shutter and winding, so you can easily overlap your shots to create a super panoramic shot! In this tipster I am going to show you how I shoot a roll of 35mm film to create a panoramic shot of my little journey!
The full photo is even too big for our gallery – so take a look here in the superviewer.
Here is how you do it:
- Install the Diana+ 35mm Back on your Diana F+
- Test how many times you turn the knob to leave the space for overlapping the next shot.
- Decide the route of the journey (direction needs to be from left to right)
- Face your target objects and shoot
- Step horizontally a few steps (beware of traffic if you shoot near a roadside)
- Adjust your focus for different distances between the objects.
- Because the spool gets thicker when you complete a certain amount of shots, the distance you turn the Knob needs to be slightly decreased to prevent black space between shots.
- Keep shooting until you use up your roll.
- Ask the photo lab to develop your film and leave it un-cut!
- Then stitch either your prints or the digital scans with a photo editing software.
Voila. There you go a full roll of 35mm panoramic! Take a little journey from the post office to your home, or a walk in the park and try this trick!
