#BloggersFilmSwap – Part 2 Film 2

IMG_5523_zpsa40eebac

So after film 1 being a complete double exposure fail, I’m happy to reveal that film 2 was slightly more successful:

Scan

Scan 9B

Scan 6C

But only slightly – 3 out of 50 odd photos isn’t really a great outcome is it? I don’t really understand what went wrong because that first double exposure is pretty clear so I don’t understand how the rest didn’t come out at all. I’m starting to think that maybe it was an error when processing at the shop but I don’t have a clue – if anyone can shed some light on this please do πŸ™‚

Despite the lack of double exposure, I still thought the rest of the film came out really well:

In terms of capturing summer, I think we deserve a pat on the back – ice creams, blue skies, flowers, fair grounds, seasides and colours. I really enjoyed the project and I love analogue film photos – the colours are just amazing and theΒ imperfections (e.g.light leaks)Β are so organic and beautiful.

Although our double exposure project was basically a fail, I’d love to try it again and hopefully produce some better results. If you have any advice please let me know. I’ve already got another film loaded in the camera, ready to start snapping. Thanks to Nora from Hello You and my partner in double exposure crime,Β Lucy.

Hope you enjoyed these posts – let me know if you want to see more πŸ™‚

    Cool post πŸ™‚ Doubles are tricky, I would suggest trying to shoot some high contrast images on your first shot, something with a good mix of light and dark areas, then a second exposure in good strong light. This will burn the dark areas of your first shot, the light areas are already exposed and so mostly unaffected by the second exposure.

    I’ve found if your second exposure is of a darker subject the result is pretty poor as it cant ‘cook’ the film long enough to show through the original exposure.

    Hope this helps!

      Thanks for the tips craig – your explanation really makes sense so will have to keep it all in mind when I try my 2nd double exposure attempt! Fingers crossed I will get there in the end πŸ™‚

      I’m glad you agree πŸ™‚ I do really like how they turned out – you just can’t beat film, but I wish that more than 3 had double exposed… next time hopefully!

    That sucks that it didn’t come out as you had hoped but the photos look beautiful though!

      Thanks Lauren – don’t get me wrong, I do like them but obviously just not what we were expecting! Better luck next time… πŸ™‚ xx
