Doubles with buildings
Buildings are just around us. It can be the best background, yet can be the best object.

Doubles with faces
Don’t be shy, just go nearer and smile to your lens. Record faces in a single frame.

Doubles with lights
It’s time to play with lights. I still can’t get a nice light painting image, more practice is required for this.

Doubles with endless panorama
Get some ideas from the Tipster section and go for endless panorama with double exposures. It is not so hard.

Doubles with a different camera
Shoot the first image as normal and then reloaded the film to another camera to overlap with the second image. (Example: Olympus XA2 + UWS)

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.

Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
