Adding borders on your digital pictures is just a click away, but there’s an easy way to create your own border effect with your analog camera.
There are no limitations to the type of borders you can create, and this technique will work on any analog camera. I used the Diana F+
medium format camera, as it has a large exposure area and comes with exposure frames already which are easy to modify. The same method can be applied to 35mm film cameras, the frame will just be a little smaller to match the exposure area.
I made a few different types of borders for my camera and swapped them out between rolls of film. Making your own custom film photography borders is easy. Let's make!
