People always say, “double the trouble”. But I believe that for most lomographers, double is not a trouble at all. In fact, double is something special, creative, and fun to do. Doubles always let our imagination run free.
Many lomographers love and enjoy doing doubles, so do I. There are many ways of doing doubles. Some lomographers prefer to do it themselves by hitting the MX switch or loading the same roll of film with the first layer and shoot again for the second layer. Some lomographers like to do doubles with other people by swapping film. Here are some of the doubles I did. They may not be the best photos I’ve ever taken but they are special in their own way.
Double with faces or body parts is what I do when I want an extraordinary photo of people.
I love stuffed toys. Therefore I did some doubles with some of my stuffed toys.
Sometimes I do doubles to show the connection between two images.
Things such as flowers, buildings, and statues are just around us. These things are great objects to double with.
Don’t worry that the outcome may not be like what you’re expecting. Just enjoy the process and have fun. Let your imagination run wild to create your very own unique photo. Remember that double does not always mean trouble!
