35mm Sprocket Hole Photography

Posted: 02/15/2011

Segment from Film Photography Podcast Episode 28 - February 15, 2011


"Sprocket hole photography is a style of photography that exposes the full width of 35 mm film, creating a photograph punctuated by the "sprocket holes" (perforations) along the edges of the film. It is part of the lo-fi photography movement. Usually, this style involves the use of a modified medium format camera, since a 35 mm camera ordinarily will not expose the edges of the film."
