About the Image(s)

I have been experimenting with multiple exposures and intentional camera motion. This is a combination of two images, double exposed in-camera with sweeping motions of the camera during exposures of 1/8 second.

Really very interesting aesthetic: very reminiscent to some types of 20th century modern art abstract paintings. Well visualized, executed and processed!

Thank you. I have been inspired by a presentation I saw by Sephanie Johnson (see: www.stephjohnphoto.com). I plan to do more of this type of work this summer. It's great fun.   Posted: 07/03/2024 12:34:08

Very interesting textures in the background as well as in the darker parts of the image.   Posted: 07/03/2024 12:57:47

I don't need a label attached to this piece in order to enjoy it. A Rembrandt classical portrait is very different from a Van Gogh landscape. But I can enjoy both for what they are without the addition of a label. Good work.   Posted: 07/05/2024 09:19:01

Really interesting image. I never would have thought about combining ICM and multiple exposures. I like that the movement in the two frames is in different directions. I find myself wondering about what the scenes really were; keeps my interest. One question - what do you see as the pros/cons of doing this in-camera vs. in Ps? Novelty? Better results?

By the way I looked at the website you shared - beautiful/interesting . . . I was going to sign up for her newsletter/group - until I saw the price that I thought was ridiculous.

Tx for motivating me to try this!   Posted: 07/07/2024 04:43:23

In camera pros:
1. I can see the images as I am superimposing them (with some cameras)
2. I can see the final result. This is hugely helpful as with this type of technique 99% of images or more are throw-aways. If I get a promising image, I will do more at that scene.
3. I get satisfaction by pretending to do it all at once like a film photographer but getting the result right away.

In camera cons: My camera only saves jpg ME images. But if save the RAW source images I can do more later.

PS pros:
1. If printing the image I will recombine the source image into a new RAW image for better quality and processing.
2. More blend modes from which to choose. Ability to change alignment, or to mask out certain areas where I prefer to see one of the images more clearly than the other.

Thank you.
The #2 pro seems very important.
Your image will send me down a rabbit hole where I will spend countless hours.   Posted: 07/07/2024 09:41:57

Very interesting image! This photo makes the viewer stop and contemplate, with our eyes moving throughout. As Chan said, this is a very enjoyable image. I also like the experimentation that you noted with this image...the way we learn, but also the way we all learn by sharing the photo. I look forward to more of these images! Thanks for sharing...   Posted: 07/08/2024 08:08:07

So interesting to see a combination of multiple exposure and ICM! The criss-cross background perfectly highlights the foreground for a very unusual effect. I also enjoyed your pros and cons list, which will give all of us something to think about if we try this technique. I, too, would love to see a photo of the scene without the techniques applied. It is such a mysterious image!   Posted: 07/09/2024 18:08:43
