Multiple Exposure Vancouver Rocky Mountains

double exposure (1)double exposure (4)double exposure (8)My love for taking multiple exposures grows the more and more I do them. It gives me a chance to see the world in a different way and to me it’s such a unique perceptive on the world. I love seeing what I can do with landscapes, silhouettes and architecture to create and manipulate almost my own vision of the world through my camera (without the use of editing of programs like Photoshop). So I thought I’d show more of what I am working on this just like last year but probably more on a weekly basis and it will  usually be of just one subject so you can see all the different ways I interpret it. This week is a view of the Rocky Mountains and English Bay from downtown Vancouver. I had the luck chance of standing on a balcony with this view, could you image seeing this every morning?

My Society6 Store: An Update

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

It has been a long time since I mentioned anything about my Society6 so I thought I’d take the time today to update you on what’s going on. Currently my storefront through Soceity6 is the only way to get a print of my photography so if you’ve ever been interested on owning a bit of my work I’d love for you to check it out. Plus it’s the holiday season and artwork is always a thoughtful present (even if it’s just for yourself).   My store focuses on my multiple exposure photography whether it’s cityscapes, to sunset beach landscapes and I’ve added a bunch over the last month to it so there is many different photographs to choose from.

Beyond that I  did a company review of Society6 last year as I frequently buy artwork from them so you can check that out for more information on them. Currently any of my prints you buy will have  free shipping and at least once a month there is some kind of sale or promotion through the website. I want to show you some of the newest photographs I`ve added and then some personal favourites as well. Click the photos below to check out it`s pricing info or if you want to see all the photographs at once, go here!

What`s New

Personal Favourites

One last thing I would like to mention is I am taking December off from blogging so this will be my last post for awhile. Right now I am not sure when I will be back as I think I might take January off as well but in Feburary I will definetly be back  doing weekly posts so check back then. The reason for the break, beside just wanting a bit of extra time in my life before and after work is that I talk about working on my photography website and other projects all the time but between work and my personal blog I haven’t really had much time to dedicated to those. Taking time off here will give me more time to work on other things that I am interested in and finally do a few things I just never get around to by the end of the week. You can also find me here, and here on Instagram where I post a photo daily or check out my other social media links at the top.

Double Exposure: Along the River

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

Montreal never feels like an island to me but travelling by bike circling around Lasalle on the southwest side of the island really did. The double exposures captured from that rainy gray day are half of the St Lawrence river as the bike paths are always within view of it and the canal path lined with power lines and trees. It’s a great path to take, and being our first time we had no idea what to except. We ended up hitting the path heading east right just as the sun set with only the path and power lines in front of us, a bit of serendipity. Although only a few photos were taken I thought I’d share them anyways.

Double Exposure Wednesday: Steeple

Here is the church and here is the steeple, open the door and see all the people. Haha, okay starting my double exposure post today with a nursery rhythm is probably very weird but you have to admit its fitting. Montreal is one of those places where I will never bore of the architecture, whether it’s factories, 200 year old homes with stable doors, or the churches it’s all a feast for my eyes. The multiple exposures from today were taken during a bike ride this summer when we’ve discovered this church in a neighborhood near the canal. There was something about the steeple and cross that just caught my eye and I had to stop and take a few photographs of it.

Double Exposure: Roadtripping

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure | 2 Comments

long beach multiple exposures (4)All today’s road tripping double exposures are from my trip to Vancouver Island, specially the Pacific Rim National Park where we went camping. We stayed on the Long Beach area which is just miles and miles of beach surround by the rain forest and covered on these amazing rocks that remind me of photos I’ve seen of Hawaii. There weren’t many chances to take multiple exposures on our short trip there but each of these I really enjoy.

Double Exposure Wednesday: Vieux-Port

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

double exposure vieux-montrealCityscapes are such a great way to get the feel of a city and see its history without bias. One of the reasons why I like to capture double exposures of Montreal is because it feels like a new way to capture the city instead of overly used airplane views you see in tourist shops or even the more modern urban landscapes of new. I feel as well that landscape photography is primarily done by men so it’s nice to shoot something not consider covenantal (no stats on that statement but the ‘famous’ ones are predominately male like in most forms of photography).  It also feels nice to capture the Montreal people are familiar with but in a way that might make them question what they even be looking at or taking a second to see a familiar landmark.

Double Exposure: Industrial Complex

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

While out on a bike ride this Spring I stopped by a shipping yard and was overcome with an idea to see what shipping containers would look like when double exposed together. Instantly I enjoyed the Lego like structures that I had created and did a few test shots to cement the idea in place. When I am casually taking photographs sometimes I hit upon ideas that I think are refreshing and I’m interest to see where I could go with it. As I’ve been concentrating on my multiple exposure photography in the last year or so I keep find new ways to manipulate my surrounds and this is one of my favourites. I’d love to do is complete a series of photographs of shipping containers and do a mini show of them here in Montreal. Maybe something I will work on next year…now my test shots.

Double Exposure: Long Beach Sunsets

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

long beach sunsets (4)Here is my collection of sunset double exposures from Long Beach, Vancouver Island during our one single night there. Besides the above photo I am presenting these in chronological order so you can see the gradual change in hue as the sun gets lower and lower. The sky starting out as a pale orange, pink hue then a more vibrant deep one and eventually pale pink and purple to end the night before nightfall. Beautiful, regardless of the smoke filling the skyline and what better than having three of your best friends along with you to watch (and some alcohol to take the edge off of the steep climb back off the beach). My obsession of photographing multiple exposures during dusk and dawn continues…

Double Exposure Wednesday: Statue

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

double exposure vieux montreal (2)double exposure vieux montreal (1)double exposure vieux montreal (4)Today’s double exposures were taken a while back in early spring when me and Victor walked around our favourite area of Vieux-Montreal close to the docks. I am not sure how long this metal ironworks statue has been in place beside the silos since this was the first time we had adventures around the building (photos here). Sitting just outside the fence line on the edge of the small peninsula I think the statue vastly improves the cityscape behind and I just had to capture the sculpture from a few different angles.

Double Exposure: Burnaby Sunset

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

double exposure sunset (2)All the double exposure photographs I am showing were taken during one night of my trip to Vancouver from the brilliant view my friend Nicole has of downtown Vancouver. For at least half of my trip the sky was being blocked out by smoke caused by nearby forest fires so it was really lovely when it cleared up for several reasons including that I could enjoy watching the sun go down from the comfort of her porch. I had never forgotten the amazing sunsets Vancouver has but it was a different experience entirely to view them like this. When I lived there, usually I’d watch them while whizzing past on the Skytrain a random evening. I felt spoiled by the end of the trip. Enjoy the changing skies and hues of the sunset over the period of an hour one night in Burnaby.
