Basics of Multiple Exposures

2011-02-17 4

Multiple exposures defined as a a frame of the negative being exposed twice or more to create a single photograph, but sometimes you forget to wind the film and press the shutter again, a surprise will come out after you develop the film.

Multiple exposures is the easiest tricks can made in your photo by analogue cameras.

The simplest way is focus the object and stay firm, press the shutter for couples of times, then the object you focus will be multiplied in a single photos.

Next is using the back light effect to produce multiple exposures. Use your hands or other object which is big enough and have special outline, face it to the sun and capture once. At the same time, remember don’t wind the film. The first exposure of the object will become black and the surrounding will be white or blue (sky color). Then use the same exposure to focus on another object which has brilliant color like flower, tiles, etc.
It’s done.

Last trick is using the unique design of the building or other tall object to create multiple shots. Expose the first image as usual with your camera, then upside down ( opposite site of the exposed image) your camera, press the shutter, it will becomes two or more buildings in a single shots.

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

    The name Hodachrome is one of the most popular in the Lomography community. It has become synonymous with the acronym EBS, which stands for exposing both sides of the film. These multiple-exposed photos have an unmistakable style in the vein of ecstatic carnivals and exaggerated dreams. The man behind the vivid shots, Hodaka Yamamoto, talks to us about the habits of a good experimental photographer.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
