Heart Masking B+H BF 35

Masking is pretty quick and easy to do, let me show you how I did it on my Bell and Howell BF 35 camera.

Materials: Click here.

Measure the original square or rectangular mask (it’s the part of the camera where you lay your film flat from the film canister to the spool) on the camera.

Note: Some cameras with detachable masks, especially with 120mm film cameras. My Bell + Howell’s mask is fixed on the camera.

Cut the cardboard exactly the same size as the mask.

Fold it in half crosswise and draw the half of your heart, or any shape you wish

and cut… take note that the edges of the heart mask is magnified on your photos, be extra careful in cutting, unless you like it edgy.

Color the mask with sharpie back to back. Make sure that the inside edges are blackened too. You can get a black cardboard to skip this step.

Tape it on the camera’s mask and make some adjustments if doesn’t fit.

IMPORTANT: Don’t forget to turn it upside down before you secure it on the original mask.

Nothing really important in this post except that. You must have known what needs to be done upon seeing the first photo but I still did this post nevertheless as a promise kept. 🙂

Also, I cannot show you the inside of the camera because it’s currently loaded with film.

That’s just basically it! You do not have to do the exact same thing cause it differs for every camera and with your resources. I suggest that you play with it and make your own designs. You can change the color of the mask or use a cutter and make asymmetrical shapes.

Remember:  The results are only limited to your imagination. It starts with what you want to see on your photos then secrete some creative juices.

Thank you and I hope that you ♥ it. 🙂
