Double exposure and multiple exposure are terms and techniques we are all familiar with as lomographers and photography enthusiasts, but an Austin-based artist has experimented with this merging of two still images on her drawings. Take a look at some of the beautiful results after the jump!
We’re all bound to try our luck at making impressive doubles, whether with ourselves or a fellow lomographer. But, have you tried making double exposures on paper? Yes, as in double exposure drawings!
This is precisely what Austin-based artist Jane Radstrom did for some of the pieces for the series of paintings she called The Girl Series. The paintings were inspired by photographic effects involving “manipulation of exposure to create images that look ‘real’, but contain more than a single still image.” I find her “doubles” technique beautiful and delicate, not only because the subjects are women, but because the difference in their poses are subtle yet eye-catching.
If you liked Jane Radstrom’s work, I’m sure you’ll also be mesmerized at the photo-realistic double exposure paintings of Pakayla Biehn.

Chloé Vollmer-Lo's photos speak for themselves. Every image, whether it's a portrait or a seemingly simple snapshot of a street alley, tells a story. The Paris-based photographer tested the New Petzval Lens 85 recently, and the results, as expected, speak volumes. She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petzval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
