Tonight I had a little Multiple Exposure photoshoot with Abigail from the coffee shop down the way. Interesting part is the more that I do this Multiple Exposure project (specifically the people/models and photos portion of it) the more I am finding that the second exposure, meaning the one that will determine the overlay on the first, is really hard to do on the spot.
Tonight I was shooting my portrait of Abi but finding that the second photo was difficult to find the right scene on demand. When I am shooting while walking about I can sometimes wander three or four blocks before I find something that is a interesting fit for the second photo. So shooting these in a photoshoot type setting is proving to be quite difficult. The prefect texture or scene is not always right there, and holding the photo in limbo only works for so long not to mention that you can’t really take another photo until you finish the one in the chamber so to speak. In upcoming shoots I think that I will use two cameras and have one be a film camera so I can just shoot photos of my person and then reload the roll and shoot the second photos.
Anyway these are not the Multiple exposures from the shoot. They are instead a combination of ‘I forgot to turn on the multiple photo setting’ and ‘the camera timed out waiting for the second shot.’ They are awesome!
