| iPhone | Double Exposures

I’ve always found double-exposure photographs enchanting. It’s some kind of magic to have 2 scenes/stories/memories superimposed upon each other in this way. In many ways typifies the modus operandi of how my memory weaves together soft distant recollections (quite confusing at the best of times – which is why I keep so many notebooks).

Hiro sees less charm in my dabblings with double exposures and regularly dismissed them as funny and trippy!

I would like to be able to capture a good double exposure photo on film – it would to me be like real art. However try as I might, I keep failing. Film is an expensive way to collect hopeless mistakes so I’ve reluctantly resorted to practising with the Hipstamatic App. The app allows for multiple exposures that don’t pop up on your screen immediately, you have to wait a few moments while it “processes” your pic – which adds a little fun and anticipation to it all!

Have you tried your hand at double exposures? How have you faired? Please do share your tips & tricks!
