Double Trouble: dltphoto

Nope, this isn't a post about my two adorable girls or that we are having twins.. nope. Never.
This is just about a technique I have seen from the past and thought about revisiting it. Basically its an image stacking process. Back in the day, before computers, people would have stacked/ sandwiched two or three negatives together into an enlarger and the art would have been created, or they could have sandwiched slide or even multiple exposed...
Today, I am simply able to drop one image onto another image and then simply reduce the opacity (see-throughness) of one of the images to allow the rear image to be visible.

Here are my two original images below. one correctly focused and one desperately out of focus. Combined I think they make an interesting image. Perhaps I cold explore the process of editing them more to see if I can make the image MORE pleasing. Just wondering if anyone has any views on this technique?

Wash, Rinse, Repeat! But this time use film!

Ee Ecks Are, Fuji F200: dltphoto

Quite often I find myself with multiple cameras on my person. Mostly, I shoot the same shot with each camera type, sometimes I don't choose any of the photos to work with. They still get stored. Just incase. One of my favourite little cameras that has had some remarkable results is the little Fuji F200 EXR. Who says little compact cameras can't get good results. Its really about the user too.Really.

September 2012: Favourite Shot: dltphoto

This months shot was a simple shot. I just enjoy the composition and the lousy app'd finish of it. I am including the original phone capture so you can see how sometimes what you see isn't really what you end up with.

Autumns Veins:

Winter Of Freedom, @ The Tunnel,Vancouver: dltphoto

I shot these a little while ago and kinda forgot to shove them on the blog. Ooops.
My good friend Mr Omer Cordell has made his own band here in Vancouver. Winter Of Freedom is the name. Music is the Game!
Here are some shots I got at the worst possible venues to shoot with the worst lighting ever. When you have a bad venue, you have to give it some wiggle! Omer and I have spent years working with bad lighting... at least I was allowed to use flash. No three songs and out with no flash! thanks house of blues!
 If you just Google Images "omer cordell" or "seventh frame photography" you will undoubtably find the best band photos ever shot but the most talented film shooter ever. Yes I said FILM. Omer has been anti-digital for many years.... Hero!

Alouette Lake, BC: dltphoto

When planning your annual thanksgiving weekend holiday at Alouette Lake, please make sure your pack some shorts. These words have never been spoken by NO ONE EVER! Beautiful Summer like weather in October. I'll take that!
 All images in this post post with the Mega, but oh so slow Sigma DP1s. Really it has brilliant detail. Its a shame!
