Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

I thought it was time for another double-exposure! The buildings on the left and right are of course the silhouettes, but if you look closely, you can see the ‘little’ boat on the river and that the sky is not actually the sky but the reflection of the water :)

Click if you’re interested in how to shoot ‘doubles’ digitally and of course analoguesly.
Thanks to Inge for finding out about digital double-exposures, because I sure wouldn’t know ;)

Aaaand coming up: The notorious Book Fair, or as Pustefix would call it: Conny in Heaven…

      Grazie! Me too, I can barely restrain myself from shooting doubles all the time ;)

      Thank you, Allyson! Though not as creative as your crafts ;)

    Really interesting shot. Did you manipulate a digital image here? I’ve done some double exposure thru Photoshop with various results. Nicely done here. :)

      Thanks a lot, Veronica! The art of lomography is an analogue one, which makes it so fascinating! So I merely hit the release button, did not forward the 35mm film to the next frame, but turned the camera 180° instead and shot again…easy as pie ;)
      I’d love to have a look at your photoshopped ones, though!

        Gosh, it’s been ages since I got the Leica out and loaded it with “real” film. About time to do that don’t you think? The Photoshop images always feel like such cheats to me that I don’t do too much of that. But I’d love you to come by veronicaroth.com and leave me a comment and I’ll direct you to a post or two. :)
