I glanced at the clock and realized it was almost 5:00 pm. These days thats when photographers realized they literally have minutes before all natural light is gone. I had been wanting to try out some double exposures but usually miss the daylight. It was panic mode.
I’m in several photography groups on Facebook and have been seeing a lot of really interesting double exposure pictures being shared this past week or so. I was curious and wanted to try it myself. I’d been working all day at home (car trouble meant I couldn’t get to my day job) and suddenly realized it was a almost 5 o’clock. Normally it’s about 6 or so before I get home so I don’t have any daylight left. This was my chance!
I grabbed by husband (thanks babe!) and pulled him outside with me. I had only researched quickly how to do these photos. I’m more of a hands on learner and read just enough to get me going. Once I try it I come back and figure out why I did what I did and maybe what I missed. I know, not the best technique. I made sure I had my camera on the right settings, that my surroundings were how I wanted them, then snapped a picture of my husband and then one of the closest tree or bush.
Here’s what I got! They aren’t the best but it’s a start! And like I said, I should now go read a little more. I tried to get my dog to help me out but he thought I was trying to coax him past his in-ground fence and was not budging. He found the pecans more interesting. 🙂 Can’t really blame him.
Let me know what y’all think! I’ll definitely be trying some more at some point. If you’re invested in learning more about how this works, let me know and I’ll do my best to help!
