Seeing Doubles

1

One of my favorite things about shooting analogue is you can do a double exposure on one single frame. Whether hitting that MX switch or having to do a film swap with other lomographers gets me so excited with the results. Here are a few of my favorite doubles and film swap shots that I have.

I have become a fan of double exposures since following the works of one of Manila’s finest lomographers @stitch. He is one of those, in my opinion, who have perfected the MX shots. Especially the ones that includes clouds. I have seen plenty of double exposure shots around LSI but @stitch’s MX shots were the ones that made a mark.

I just wanted to share as well those that I have taken. It would seem easy to take shots like it but if I may add, there may be one outstanding shot that would really catch your attention in probably 10 shots that you take. So, these are the ones that I have taken throughout my crazy lomography days. So, it may be all that easy to hit that MX switch but it takes patience and great timing to get that eye-catching photo. But an easier way is to do a film swap with other lomographers. Especially, those from other countries. It is a whole lot exciting and way fun!

Whether eye-catching or not, doing double exposures on your shots is way, way exciting and fun. So, when shooting a roll, try at least shooting 5-10 double exposure shots. Or shoot a whole roll and swap it with another lomographer. Definitely, doing double exposures doubles the fun and excitement of shooting analogue.

    12 Months, 12 Projects: March Of Caffenol

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
