To some, shooting doubles may well still be a mystery. Well then, allow me to share you how I do such a trick!
To avoid further confusion on getting double exposures, This is exactly how I do it:
Set the ASA settings of your LC-A+ to 400 by turning the small dial until you see 400 appear in the window
Load your 100 ISO speed film inside your LC-A+. You can see a film speed by reading the packaging – all films have a film speed – I prefer to use slide film for doubles, but that choice is up to you. Experiment with whatever you can get your hands on.
Shooting in good light can really help the contrast with doubles.
I usually start by shooting layers first that are close up on the 0.8 distance setting. Graffiti, textures on walls work well, signs, markings basically anything that looks cool at 0.8m – 0.8 this is about the average length of a human arm by the way – does not have to be perfect! And never use a ruler or you would look extremely stupid.
Now you have a choice to make, please consider this before you start to shoot your doubles . You can now either rewind the film inside your LC-A+ to the very beginning and shoot a second layer OR you can shoot using the MX Lever which allows you to shoot one layer on top of the previous shot as you go along. But I prefer rewinding the film myself and then shoot a second layer.
I have found that shooting beyond 0.8 for the second layer can help give a different perspective to shooting doubles; it also helps create a depth to the image – so again experiment with different shots that are further away.
Some do it very differently than me so it doesn’t mean you have no other options. Always experiment and whatever works for you would be just great!
How did you do your doubles? with two different cameras or swapped films with someone? We are dying to know! clue us in on anything and everything you know here immediately!
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
