Octopus, Octopi! — by Joe Reifer

When using 35mm film in a Holga, proper framed spacing can be accomplished by simply winding 1.5 turns between shots. Sometimes it’s fun to wind less and overlap exposures into a panoramic image. The octopus kite panorama from the Berkeley Kite Festival is 3 exposures from left to right with about 3/4 of winding between each shot. The video below shows the Octopile in motion — 16 Peter Lynn designed octopus kites flown as a set by the Berkeley Kite Wranglers. Quite mesmerizing!
