We all know that doubles exposures give our photos the magic of the unexpected. There many ways to shoot the same frame twice, but I want to introduce you what I´ve called “THE KINETICDOUBLE EXPOSURES”.
Using any camera that allows multiple exposures (I used Lomo LC-A+), take the same photo twice without a tripod. Even if you think you didn’t move, the camera is not going to be exactly in the same place. That little mis-framing will give your photos some kind of move, a sense of vibration, a wonderful kinetic look:
Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?
For the beginner, encountering film photography can be intimidating, as it often requires much thought than in digital photography. But when you do get to learn the ropes, it becomes part of the habit, and there's definitely a payoff in shooting analogue.
Do you want to get better-exposed pictures with your Lomo'Instant? All you need is a light meter and a little bit of knowledge about time and aperture. This Tipster teaches you all the basics you need to know.
