Double Exposure: Winter Wonderland

double exposures (23)double exposures (17)I’ve being doing a lot of double exposures this winter as they are really fun during this season since there is so much white space to play around with. It’s hard in some cases like landscape shots but I find doing upside down second exposure is a great work around if you have the sky (ie too much light) in your first shot. If you have never taken an upside down double exposure (no idea if there is some fancy name for this method) it’s exactly what you think it is. You basically take one shot regularly and then flip the camera so it’s upside down for your second exposure. It helps minimize the white space as the ground is now the sky and I find that middle ground area ends up getting really neat geometric patterns in it (great for sunsets). Examples of this are all over these shots, see if you can tell which ones are taken with this method ( I’ll give you a tip –  the first one is ).  There are a few too many photos today that are kinda the same but I really like all the variations.

I went a little crazy and ended up with over 200 photos from my trip to Parc Jean-Drapeau for the Fete Des Neiges festival (still haven’t posted photos from the event either).  I am so bad about posting photos around the same time I take them because of this – my procrastination for photo sorting is my weakness.
