Shooting Minnesota Twins spring training with a Lomo Supersampler camera.

When I was packing up my gear last month for Fort Myers, Fla., I found the camera in one of my cases and decided to take it with me. I purchased the camera years ago and never really used it. In fact, it still had the original roll of film in it from 2003. When I had the roll developed it had photos of former Star Tribune photo intern Ramin Rahimian, which is what helped me date the film. Since I was spending two weeks covering spring training for The Star Tribune, it was fun to occasionally pull out the Supersampler and try to shoot some unique photos.

If you’re not familiar with the Supersampler it’s a 35mm film plastic camera with four lenses that split the image into four panoramic scenes to produce a cool strip effect within one photo. The camera has no real viewfinder so you just have to point it in the general direction of your subject. You advance the film on the camera by pulling on a string. The camera has two settings: 4 photos in 2 seconds (.50sec/photo) or 4 photos in 0.2 seconds (.05sec/photo). Be sure to click on the link below to see more Supersampler photos from spring training.
