Sometimes I see multiple exposure shots and they look jumbled and crazy. And while I have some of those, I wondered what it would be like to create very intentional multiple exposures. It is possible to be as intentional with these as it is with a single shot. With analogue photography, we all know what it’s like not to want to waste the shot!
First of all, know what you are after. If you see something you want to shoot, then figure out if it would be best served in a traditional multiple exposure shot or winding the film to half-exposures. For action shots, wind your film half-frame. You’ll get a nice panoramic shot! Yes, these things are technically different and you could argue that film forwarding is a different thing altogether from multiple exposures, you need to know which one serves your purpose so that you don’t lose the chance at an incredible shot! If you advance your frames, don’t send out your film unless you give them specific instructions not to cut the negatives! You need to decide where you want that image to end. Most of all, enjoy shooting!

Greta Gerwig's directoral debut in Lady Bird is something to not be missed. By showing us what how even the most confident of people can be torn down to their barest bones by coming to terms with the question "who am I?" A question asked by the story as well as the camera.
It's one Monday nightmare away 'til we can say hello to our friends from the other realm. Tomorrow will be Hallow's Eve, and everything is not what they seem. No matter if you're not from a wizarding school or if your pet cat can't talk. You can be as witchy and magical with this Monday Moodboard.
March is Women's History Month and we want to take a closer look at the wonderful women behind cameras all over the country. Marissa Alper's work is reflecting her private life, and with it she is slowly tearing down the barriers she had to face as a female artist.
Once the street photographer sets his foot outdoors, it's like being unleashed to the wilderness -- the concrete jungle. For the neophyte, it's going to be an overwhelming experience, and the best way to deal with it is to pick out the best companion, the Lomography Konstruktor.
