New Approach to Triple Exposures for Diana Mini

Multiple exposures can be about as predicable as lightning. It can be as easy as getting a camel through the eye of a needle. Simply put, they are rebellious little things, and need to be rethought in order to have desirable results. Lets see what we can come up with.....!

I found by complete accident (and my Diana’s stubborn advance wheel) that triple exposures are more pleasing to the eye when not COMPLETELY overlapping. If a picture is taken, then the wheel is wound about 3/4 of the way for the next picture, and the same is repeated for a third picture, the results are quite interesting. The end product is three pictures overlapping in thirds so that each picture gets its chance to shine, but is not over powered by the others. The nature of this method is good for story-telling pictures, because it creates more of an impact, making the viewer think about the different levels of images evident in the pictures.

Refer to the Picture: For example, a simple message a viewer could take away from the picture: Life is a highway or life is a beach (cliche I know).

The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.

    I had the triple exposure thing happen to me for almost a whole roll... it was my first roll, and i was not sure how to advance, after someone told me to be careful when advancing or i would "go over" the next frame. Personally I loved the way some of them came out. Here are two of my faves!
