“I lost myself, I lost myself, you can’t see how, becuse I am just a cloud”

The original concept behind these multiple exposure was for my 52 Weeks Project last year where I took a self-portrait every week for a year. It was one of those moments where an idea just grabbed me and I spent an hour outside freezing trying to find the best angle and combination between my silhouette and a paper mask. I haven’t included the one I end up chosing in this set but you can check it out here.

Multiple Exposure: Vancouver Sunset

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure | Leave a comment

vancouver sunset (1)For some reasons these Vancouver sunset multiple exposure photographs remind me of the song “To the Moon and Back” by Savage Garden. They were taken last Summer during one of the many sunsets I managed to watch from my dear friend Nicole’s balcony of downtown. It’s interesting to see the progress of color as the sun gets further down. I haven’t seen any really great sunsets yet this year but here’s hoping…

The last one you can really see the scale of how far away I was. vancouver sunset (15) vancouver sunset (12)

Multiple Exposure: Parking Lot

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure | Leave a comment

mulitple exposure lost sky (1)Last week I shared some multiple exposures from a trip to Ontario where we got lost and stopped by the side of the road for a few minutes. I had a few more of the parking lot I thought were interesting. Not the most ideal landscape but overall I thought they turned out quiet interesting, night silhouettes are some of my favourite to shoot. Even odd times like then can be the perfect opportunity for taking photographs. You can check out the other sets of photos, here!

Multiple Exposure: Lost

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure | Leave a comment

Sometimes you are lost, and I mean actually lost not existentially lost and you come upon the greatest thing. This weeks’ multiple exposure is from a trip a few years ago when we stopped for gas and directions and unlike my fellow passengers who were so focused on getting home I noticed the sky from the parking lot and stopped and stared (and took a few photographs).

Multiple Exposure: Dome

multiple exposure dome (1)Today’s multiple exposure are of the Montreal Biosphère located in Montreal on Ile Saint Helen. Taken during one of me and Victor’s summer bike trips as we were riding from Ile Notre Dame back across Jean-Drapeau parc to our house.The sun was just starting to set so it’s not quiet a sunset just yet but I thought I’d try and capture the clouds behind the Bioshphere.

Multiple Exposure: Glimpse of Spring

For some reason I always feel they do not turned out as well as I expect. There is some really neat and surreal multiple exposure tricks you can do with them (like I’ve done here) but when I shoot with a lot of foreground I am not sure what I don’t’ like but the confusion of the foreground is what I notice most. Below is the singular exposure shot so you see the difference.

See what I mean though that double exposure photos just don’t have as much feeling and strength as it should.

Multiple Exposure: Bridge at Twlight

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure | Leave a comment

I love the lines of the Jacques Cartier bridge, although they aren’t supposed to be an architecture highlight (they are the guard rails to prevent jumpers) I can’t help but appreciate how hypnotic and beautiful I find them. I wasn’t a big fan of these photographs after I shoot them because the sky, although a beautiful sunset is too muddy feeling for me. However the lines created are very unique and this is reminder for me to go out on the bridge again and take more.

I usually end up taking a combination of regular photography and multiple exposures when shooting so I may start including a photograph where I haven’t taken a multiple exposure so you can get an idea of what the subject looked like without the technique used. It’s kind of interesting to compare (to me at least).

Multiple Exposure: Crescent Moon

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure | Leave a comment

multiple exposure crescent moonMy crescent moon multiple exposures are actually from the same sunset I showed you photos of last week here, except a bit later on after the sun had set.  Taken of Lake Ontario during a camping trip in late September. The sky enamored me so much that night I just had to capture the reflection of the silhouetted trees on the water and the extra bright moon. We pasted this particular shot while in the car and I insisted on getting out and taking photos telling them to go ahead. It was nice just sitting there alone watching the moon.

Multiple Exposure: Sunset Waves

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure | Leave a comment

Sunset waves are a series of multiple exposures taken during a summer camping trip a few years ago to Lake Ontario The sun was just starting to go down and you could see it disappearing along the water’s horizon, so I captured the sunset and waves of the lake as one.
