Holga TIM diptychs


The Holga TIM is an interesting camera that lends itself to photographic experimentation.  With its two lenses that can be covered and uncovered independently and the fact that the shutter can be reset without advancing the film it allows you to shoot two images side by side within the space of a regular 35mm film frame.  You can also do multiple exposures on a single frame using the shutter reset.  For these images though I would expose one lens at a time and then reset the shutter and exchange which lens was uncovered, producing diptychs on film.

The one from the roll that does appear sharp I must have stopped down the lens all the way in the bright sunlight. That aperture is said to be f11 while the cloudy setting is f8. The shutter fires at 1/100sec and the focus is also fixed. A previous post about the TIM can be found here […]
