Day 3

By Jes • Uncategorized • 21 Aug 2009

I will always remember the double exposure assignment from one of my first photography classes in college. The challenge was to make as many double exposures in as many ways as you could. I always enjoyed the ‘in-camera’ double exposures. The challenge was you didn’t see the final image until after you developed it. There was no way of knowing before. Not everyone works out. In fact many don’t visually work at all. But each one has something to it that makes you stop and look for awhile.

I think sometimes when you are working on a big project, one of the best things you can do to give yourself a boost is to go back to something you tried early on.

In an effort to continue collecting images to use in this project, I went back to early techniques.

These are all ‘in-camera’ double exposures. In a way it is truly the ‘analog’ way of what I do with my layered images in Photoshop.

A double exposure I took at a nature preserve we drove through on our way home from Winona.   Taken with a Hasselblad 501c/m using a Polaroid back with Silk 125i pack film.

    These are so fun – I like that thought process too… the “analog” version of what you do in PS! Cool.
