Do you get a film swap proposal and you don’t know what to shoot? You try to find your way around it, but you don’t come up with anything. Well, a good way to solve this are flowers!
Approximately one year ago I had a traffic accident, and I could not move my left arm. I had a long list of film swaps (double exposures with other people) to do, and more and more kept accumulating.
I was frustrated because I wanted to take photos so badly, but I could not take them because I couldn’t move an arm, imagine the disaster… All the photos would have come out blurry.
What did I come up with to solve this? Shoot flowers. I didn’t have to move too much because my objective was to shoot macros. In order to do it I used a tripod and a SLR camera.
Some months ago I did a couple of tests with two swaps, one with myself and the other one with a French girl friend, and the results were good.
Then I cheered up. This is what you’re going to need:
- An SLR camera.
- A film for doubles.
- I used close-up lenses in order not to move too much.
- Set a higher ISO on your camera (just like every time you shoot doubles).
I leave you with some examples of what you can get.
