Doubles With You - larslau & lucasjakobsson


A while ago I wanted to join in the fun and shoot doubles with some Lomographers from the worldwide community! One of the Lomographers that caught on was larslau from Denmark – know for his preference of infrared films!

When I started working for Lomography I had never heard about double exposures. At first the reaction was – “well this looks nice, I should try this as well!” So I did, at first by my self, had some not-so-great-results, and later with other Lomographers, one of which was Larslau from Denmark.

I must admit that one of the great advantages of working for Lomography is that I can test cameras – and also different types of film. I knew that Lars always liked shooting infrared film – and I felt like trying something new. I had never done doubles with black and white either – and for some reason I really liked the way that the Ilford SFX 200 looked at me. So I went down to the lager and checked out a roll.

I shot the roll with my LC-A+ in Vienna, and then sent it to Lars in Denmark – who has the following to add:

“I used my LC-A+ with the Tunnel Vision lens and a red gel filter and the ISO set to 200. Most of the pictures are taken at the countryside at my grandmothers. I think we rated the film to low – 150 or maybe even 100 ISO would have been better, but 150 isn’t easy to achieve on an LC-A+ (:

We didn’t achieve the “glowing foliage” infrared effect or black skies, but I didn’t suspect that we would. That will require a real infrared filter or a really deep red filter. Some of the pictures, especially No. 29 seem to have a somewhat dramatic infrared effect (similar to HIE), but I think that it is actually mainly the combination of the soft tunnel vision focus and the exposure, but I can’t be sure. So I didn’t see much infrared effect, but I think that the film produced some interesting results, and with a deeper red filter it will probably be even more interesting."

Hmm that’s a lot of talk – hope you enjoy the pictures as well!

Oh – Interested in doubles? Your next partner may be just a comment away! Remember – once you are done – do send in your double adventures to the magazine!
