Thanks to the double exposures and the bokeh technique, we can achieve surprisingly beautiful effects at our photos.

The multiple exposures can be achieved with our precious cameras Holga, Diana, LC-A+… but they can also become possible by shooting with the same film more than once, and this is what gave birth to this tipster.

Let me explain:

This summer I was given a biscuit maker as a gift, which came with various templates with different patterns. These small discs were a new discovery for me.

Thus, I would place these templates in front of one of my cameras and I would go out for a walk at night taking pictures of the lights, just like it is described here.

What came out was photos of small lights with a backround that was almost totally black. When we get something like this we have the opportunity to expose the part of the film that was left black by shooting the whole film again and creating a backround for our new photos.

For this reason, when I finished with the first series of shots, I re-loaded the film and this time I took normal ones.

The result can have the title The City of Lights!
