This week’s featured Analogue Lifestyle article is “Seeing Doubles: Double Is Not Trouble” by funfun from Malaysia. Letting her imagination run wild, she shares her favourite subjects for multiple exposure photos! Find out more about her technique here.
“Many lomographers love and enjoy doing doubles, so do I. 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. Don’t worry that the outcome may not be like what you’re expecting. Just enjoy the process and have fun.”
The key to becoming a good Lomographer is to keep an open mind. You shoot a lot, experiment with different techniques and subjects, ask for or take constructive critique, develop your own style, and most of all, have fun! Lomography isn’t always about getting the perfect shot but enjoying the experience of trying to get a good one.
Community member funfun exemplifies just that in her pursuits with multiple exposure photography using her Lomo LC-Wide. Any Lomographer who has tried MX/doubles can attest to this remarkable method of shooting that is unique to analogue cameras. She’s right to say that it won’t always turn out the way you pictured it in your head but results could surprise you with astounding outcomes! So what are you waiting for? Go on and find trouble by shooting doubles!
