"Inspired by my motion media senior project, I shot portraits of friends and family back home in Atlanta and double exposed them with various landscapes of Savannah. Embarking on the journey of college away from home, each person helped contribute to who I am today and how I would like to document culture as a fine artist. Merging the fragments of my life from Atlanta to Savannah, I present the series "P.S Together 4 Always." All of the images were double exposed in camera with a 4x5 Field Camera using Kodak Ektar 100 Color Film. They were then digitally scanned and printed 20 x 24 inches with the digital RA-4 printer. During the postproduction phase the only editing done was the cleaning up of dust and scratches, color correction, and cropping of the edges. If you would like to see more images from this series you can check out my portfolio at https://behance.net/mahoganylenz. If you have any questions feel free to add me on Facebook at Michelle MnM! "
"Double exposure was a technique I wanted to try out as part of my A-Level course and instantly I saw the beauty within the style of photography and all the different ways that you could be different and creative with it. After seeing one or two of these style images on social networking sites I decided to play around with it and see what I could come up with.
The first photograph was made with images that I found on the internet (I know that you shouldn't really do that, I just hadn't found my style yet), after looking through other photographers work and looking at the image I had just made using the images of New York City became a clear winner.
I uploaded the images on to photoshop, after carrying out a self portrait shoot on my own and then placed my own images from the city on top, I then played around with the positioning of the images depending on the composition of both photographs it differs with every image. The black and white makes the photo look classic and makes it a lot easier to edit but the colourful shots, I personally think, look much more interesting and different to the 'normal' double exposure shots that you would expect to see."
"Talking about the technique, I use multiple exposure, making it only with the manipulation of the film, I use a mechanical camera which allows me to manipulate the film the way I want. The process begins when I stop the film to take many exposures as I want in the same frame, so the composition is done by itself, without measurement.I made this photographs with a Nikon FM10 camera, Pro Plus 200 film and Kodak 400 film. I enjoy the grainy photographs but sometimes I try some shots with less ASA to get soft images."
"Those photos are made by an old analog camera Smena 8 M, using Fujicolor Superia 200 film. Using this camera, it is possible to control rewinding of the film (not only a full frame as usually, but also a parts of it), and also to make double exposure photos. During scanning films, I am merging few frames in the same time (that is a reason why those photos are so wide). In general, my work is about illusions, dreams, I am trying to explore a new aesthetic of reality. Those photos are result of an attempt to memorize freedom of certain places."
"I used the option multiple exposure which I have on my camera (I use the Canon 5D Mark III) and I edited them a little in Photoshop. The name of the first image is 'My soul' which represents the love for hometown. Name of the second image is 'She'. The wood inside the person represents her personality."
