HQME - High Quantity Multiple Exposure

8

It works in daytime, too.... And try this technique with Lomography Redscale XR

I saw this tipster by phalanx and was directly excited. HQME sounded good and fun. The letters stand for High Quantity Multiple Exposure. In the previous tipster, he mentioned this technique for night shots, so I tried that first. Over 30 exposures over another, all shot with my Holga – but that was still not enough. So I tried it during daytime, too.

The big problem about the technique during daytime is the high chance of overexposing your film. So my choice is the Lomography Redscale XR, as it is hard to overexpose that one. I set the Holga (I somehow only tried it with her) to sunny mode and shoot, shoot, shoot (at least ten times). Sometimes I even move the camera a bit, to get more dynamic in the shot. The HQME is also fun for portraits. You should really try it.

    nice! i have a question though.
    is it only with my holga? or do you also notice that there is no difference in aperture with the sunny mode and the night mode? hmmm........

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week.

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)!
