Doubles With Subject

12

If you make doubles with yourself, you can shoot a whole layer on a certain subject. Then rewind the film, insert it in (the same or another) camera and shoot a second layer. I like the repetition of subjects, form, structures. Good subjects to use are plants and flowers, I shoot one film with fruit and vegetables (be careful in supermarkets, sometimes they are unfriendleye there!) or one layer with my beloved dog.

Of course you can make a themed double with another person, too. Try it. It is fun.

    great doubles!
    Also a good theme for doubles is light: Neon signs at night, traffic lights, etc.
