Multiple Exposures - The New In

Sometimes when the artistic feel is in you or your imagination flows like the swift stream of the Nile River, feel free to experiment with multiple exposures. Either planned or not, the pictures might turn out to be very crazy and fun to see. Not all cameras has this Multiple Exposure (MX) settings. My personal favourite is the Diana F+.

I will comment most on the multiple exposure using a Diana F+ because I own one and I am loving it. To do a multiple exposure shot using a Diana F+ is very easy. Simply, do not wind to the next frame and just push the shutter again after you’ve taken a shot on the same frame. Simple! Now, I’ve tried several techniques on multiple exposures.

1. Change the aperture setting. – I use the cloudy setting for the first shot and sunny setting for the second. It gives a shadow effect to the picture. This is because it gives more exposure to the first shot and less for the second. Difference in exposure creates the shadow effect.

2. Create something funny and crazy! This is more about your creativity and the feel of randomness. I love being random and the pictures turned out to be funny.

Start trying people as subjects and the people will start analyzing the pictures when you show it to them. You will get tons of questions such as “What is that thing behind that thing?” “Why does the person have eight hands?” and many more. Laugh it out, try it and you’ll know what I mean. Analogue for the win!

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 like to do multiple exposures too. i love to "ghost" the people, taking them first , and then only the landscape. Or do even funnier things as turning the camera between shots. you can see some of them in my "Failures and Superpositions" Album.

    I like it because it increases the chances for happy accidents.

    It's fun for me because it's like using your film for more exposures than it can hold. But happy accidents are more of a plus.
