I thought this double exposure of my MIL’s strange cat with a small park in downtown Tulsa looked a little ominous. That cat has never liked me very much.
This is a popular statue in Tulsa’s Woodward Park. I took my Lomography La Sardina film camera and took a shot with the sun behind the statue. I then turned 180 degrees and took a picture of the tree behind me without advancing the film. The tree image filled in the dark area of the statue. I thought it turned out pretty good.
What have you been experimenting with lately?
I took my film fisheye camera to Woodward Park the other day. It was a nice bright sunshiney day which is perfect for my favorite film activity of making double exposures.
My favorite is hold my hand over the sun and snap the shutter and then without advancing the film open the shutter on something colorful like flowers. So like above I got rosey hands.
And then I get purple flower hands. It is always my left hand. I tried my right hand but the shutter button is on the wrong side to work with my left hand. I wanted to try something new so…
I shot a picture of a water fountain covering the sun and then double exposed it on some other flowers. So this is a flowery water fountain. I have to tell you that I kind of like it. It is kind of strange though because there is dirty looking water on the left side and clearer on the right. Don’t ask me why because I don’t know.
I then I tried a cedar tree in the rose garden and come up with a rose tree. By then I was in a double exposing frenzy so…
I used a cedar tree as the sun block this time and then snapped a picture of another water fountain. This one make me a little dizzy and it took a while once developed to decipher just what the heck I was looking at. This one is taking the concept a little far. I’m always doing that. I don’t feel bad about it though. Moderation in all things is rather extreme is my motto.
Do you take things a little too far every now and then?
From a double exposure with my La Sardina 35mm Lomography film camera. I hid the sun with my hand on a bright clear day and snapped the shutter. I then took a picture of my wife’s knockout roses without advancing the film and voila! rosy hands. It worked out better than I thought it would. Poor man’s texturizing maybe?
Early in April the Tulips were coming up in Tulsa’s Woodward Park. I took along my Lomography Diana Mini toy camera, a simple film camera.
The tulips were beautiful as you can see. I loved the deep rich color.
They were everywhwere.
Above and below I did a little experimenting with double exposures. The poor man’s photoshop.
It is certainly not an improvement on nature but I like the tulip ghosty images.
