Multiple Exposure : Choose Your Subjects!

25

Multiple exposure is a photographic technique by exposing your film to different subjects. This technique will produce unique and unimaginable image to your photos. In fact, this method is experimental and will enable you to express your photos in a creative way. This article will guide you on proper subject to be choose for multiple exposure

Before create multiple exposure, you must ensure that the camera ISO is set a bit faster than the film ISO. For example, if the film ISO is 100, set the camera ISO to 200. If the film ISO is 200, set the camera ISO to 400.

If you are using a camera without ISO setting, you need to adjust the camera aperture a bit smaller. For example, if the weather is cloudy, set the aperture to f/16 instead of f/8.

Then, choose your subject

Subject + objects

Subject + words or numbers

Subject + scenery

So, choose your subject and rocks your camera. Lomo on!
