In July last year I posted about a #BloggersFilmSwap organised by fellow blogger Nora of Hello You. I was somehow partnered with my housemate Lucy, and so we began our double exposure experiment together.
Despite my enthusiasm I found it really hard to use my film (the same ol’ fear of using analogue film) and so it turned out to be less of a Summer project but more of an ongoing project. With some help from the guys at the London flagship Lomography Shop just off Carnaby Street, Lucy & I swapped films in October.
And then the next stage of the project began – the double exposing part(hopefully). It took us a few more months to use our films (we don’t just click for anything!) and then FINALLY the other week we got our films developed. Here are the best results of the film number 1:
So as you can tell – not a lot of double exposure, in fact none at all! It’s a shame but I feel like the photos that did come out are quite crisp, colourful (look at the blue of those skies) and interesting. You never really know what you’re going to get with a fish eye lens, but I don’t mind the hint of pink around the lens and I love the lens flares in those last 2 photos.
What do you think to film number 1? Which photo is your favourite? Have you got any double exposure tips for me (because it looks like I need them!)? There’s still film number 2 to come, so fingers crossed that we will find some double exposures – check back next week for Part 2B.
