This tipster is about a technique which I call “High Quantity Multi Exposure” or short HQME. I assume that people have already done something like that before me but I couldn’t find any information about it.
Since I am relatively new to Lomography, I don’t have much of experience but I understood that it is all about creative ideas that are put into action.
This tipster is about a technique which I call “High Quantity Multi Exposure” or short HQME. I assume that people have already done something like that before me but I could’nt find any information about it.
And this is how it works:
You measure (or estimate) the necessary exposure time for the film you have loaded. You divide this number by the the shutter speed your camera offers and the result is the amount of multiple exposures you will need to end up with a (roughly) correct exposed piece of film at the end.
The only thing you have to do now is pressing the trigger…. again and again and again and again and… you know where this leads to.
Since I did not know if this would work at all, I tried it only once so far and here is the result:
I estimated (or rather guessed) the necessary exposure time for the ISO 400 film at f11 to be around one second. 1s divided by 1/125 s (the shutter speed of my Holga) yields 125. So I just pressed the trigger 125 times in a row.
I will definitely take more pictures like that and I would love to see yours. So please post a link in the comments and maybe you want to tag your picture with HQME.
