Double Exposure

Remember the old film days? Remember being so upset that you put an exposed roll of film back in the camera and photographed your friends new perm over the same roll you shot grandmas birthday cake? I did that when I was a kid with mom’s camera that held 110 film. I can now look at those pics and laugh but back then it was upsetting. When I was an assistant to the number one photographer in my hometown, there was a system to make sure this didn’t happen. Unexposed film was in one pocket of the camera bag, and exposed went in another.
But, when it came to this Magpie, I had 2 exposures of her that I liked. So I stacked them in Photoshop and gave it some texture. I enjoy illustrating photographs on days we are being pummeled with extreme wind.

Hope you have a great start to your week! It’s a beautiful Monday here so I’m headed out to help shuffle some cattle around. We’ve got to start getting them closer to home because their new bundles of joy will be arriving in the next couple of months!

    This is a lovely effect, Leah. And I remember those battering winds when we lived out west…definitely a good day to stay inside and experiment with Photoshop!

      Thank you Aunt Jill! I didn’t shoot nature back in the day because I was a city girl and didn’t have time for it. I’m so glad I can make the time for it here, it’s so good for the soul. xoxo
