Every now and then I get in the mood to take multiple exposures just to see what happens. But sometimes I'm after the clarity and definition that get lost a lot with these types of shots. Then again, with a little intention and framing, you can get successful multiple exposure shots!
The biggest difference affecting my choice to go a multiple exposure single frame shot or a multiple frame shot is action. The biggest thing to remember if you’re after clearly defined multiple exposure shots is that the elemental rules of framing your shot don’t disappear just because you’re experimenting. If it’s a still shot and you just want various elements involved, click away in your single shot! With a little thought, you can get a well-framed photo.
Another way of capturing a panoramic-style multiple exposure shot is advancing that roll of film halfway between shots. You don’t need to worry about winding it to any magical halfway mark because it will add an interesting dimension to have these shots staggered within the frame. So remember, anytime you have a need to capture any linear action or a general panoramic shot, forward that film a few notches and you’ll love what comes of it.
Just remember that if you send your film out to get developed, put specific instructions on the packaging to NOT cut your negatives. You’ll have a more success if you can determine how and where to cut them.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
