Photography with a minimum of 3 exposures per picture. My life in 20 exposures and 5 photo’s. A tale of Lomography done by a 15 year old.
These pictures are the outcome of my journey of working with multiple exposures on 1 frame. I was curious how far I could actually go in creating pictures as a sort off collage while not losing feeling in the whole frame.
Since I’m a teenager (14 while taking most of these pictures, currently 15) I wanted these pictures to have a hedonistic touch of fun, friendship and pleasure. The five frames you’ll see in the gallery are composed of 20 exposures total. All this done fully analog with 2 rolls of film and a Diana Mini + Flash.
This is my quality time growing up along with my friends without any goals whatsoever. These are the people that surround me, they form a part of my life just in the way they also perform as a part in the full frame of every picture.
Some pro-tips when doing more than 3 exposures:
- Use flash on every exposure at day to create a more washed out photo.
- Experiment with using non flash exposures in your background for vibrance.
- Try to keep one exposure rather simple (unless your looking for chaos).
- This may sound silly but use a notebook to draw//write down your last exposure. Just to know where your picture is going. (Don’t buy a expensive notebook, the cheap dollar stuff was enough for Nabokov. It should be enough for you to)
- Pay attention to shadows and highlights..overlapping a shadow with a highlight makes a much more active picture.
- Contractions can work out amazing. For example: shoot a forest and a city in the same picture!
- When having people in your shots remember to shoot ideas or moments, not just people.
- Compensate your heavy exposures with non heavy ones.
- Frames are FUN FUN FUN like Rebecca Black, try using frames! (you can even make custom ones from cardboard etc)
