Midsummer

Midsummer

Here I was, staying up all night to take some surreal shots of the day that never ends. Midsummer-feeling was supposed be on here today. At least that’s what I thought until the rain set in with big black clouds covering the still blue sky. Too bad.

I went to bed and decided to put up a lomo picture that figuratively reminds me of midsummer instead. It’s another double-exposed shot, only this time I turned my camera south, after hitting the release button…

Happy first day of summer (even though it’s autumn in the picture ;)

P.S.: Still the best adaptation around, I think: Hoffman’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream

      Thank you so much, Inge! Everytime I’m doing double-exposures, I’m actually holding my breath, when I pick up the pictures at the photo lab :)

        I am a very amateur in photography. This is my first time to know about double-exposures. :)

        It’s very interesting! :)

        Is this double-exposures same with multiple-exposures? :D

          Pretty much, yes. Which camera are you using?
          Well, your photographs don’t feel amateur-like at all! They’re quite beautiful.
          Thanks for your interest!

            Thanks for your appreciation. It’s very encouraging.

            Btw thanks for your responding. I am using Nikon D3100.

            :)
            Ah! So, when you said multiple-exposures, you meant digital multiple-exposures? Well, that would be quite different then ;) If you do double-exposures with analogue cameras, you simply shoot 2 pictures within one frame. I’m not sure, how it can be done digitally (without Photoshop that is…)

            Yes, that’s what I meant. :D

            I’ve never had experiences with analog cameras and even my Nikon is my first DSLR camera ever. :D

            Here what I found from internet about doing double-exposures with digital SLR:

            Thanks yor sharing the link!
            How very interesting…and how…complicated in comparison to shooting doubles with analogue camaras ;)
