Multiple exposures are a perfect way how to experiment, be creative and sometimes even make your time you spend with your camera more interesting and adventurous. And because it’s a season when you may find flowers everywhere, let’s have some double-flower-fun!
My favourite “doubling” always includes flowers. Flowers are sometimes unpredictable as a layer, but they add to the photos certain freshness, colours and coincidence.
Portraits and flowers are, in my opinion, one of the best and easiest ways how to take a great multiple exposure picture. Usually, I take the flower layer photo first and then portrait or self-portrait. So what do you need and how does it work?
All you need is a roll of film, a camera and some flowers (either in pots or somewhere in a garden or a park). For flower-doubles, I usually shoot with my old Beirette, which doesn’t have the MX button. So after shooting the flower-layer, I rewind and reload the roll and shoot on it again, even some months later.
By the way, flowers are also perfect for the film-swapping.
It’s so easy, so do not hesitate to try it!
Have some flower-fun!
