Double Exposures: Sunsets on the Side

double exposure sunset montreal (1) double exposure sunset montreal (5)Lately I’ve been taking a lot of silhouette style double exposures at dusk and the results are really something else. I love the surreal landscapes I can create just using my camera not to mention how heavenly this sunset was.  I shot a lot of this style while I was on vacation in BC so the next few double exposures posts will have be more of this overall theme.

Double Exposure Wednesday: No Man’s Sky

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

double exposure sunset montreal (17) double exposure sunset montreal (13)double exposure sunset montreal (16)I mentioned a few weeks ago how I’ve been taken a lot of sunset double exposures, well I’m back again with more. It’s one of my favourite ways to do multiple exposures currently since the dark silhouettes give me a lot more playability when shooting. These specific shots were taken in the Hochelaga part of Montreal, kind of near Pie-X in this field that leads up to the factory in the above shot. We went to scope the area out for a possible future project and managed to catch an amazing day for a sunset before heading back home. Nothing like a full moon, clouds streak across the sky and the two pyramid style buildings in the distance to maximize the view. Capturing my surrounds my own way always makes me the happiest, hope you enjoy and promise in August I will have more doubles that are not just sunsets.

Double Exposure: Dusk over the River

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

double exposure jacques cartier bridge (6)I’ve had the chance to shoot so many double exposures this spring, it’s been really interesting testing out various scenarios and seeing what I can get out of the experience. These are from a picnic me and Victor went on at the Clocktower in Vieux-Montreal. We love biking down there in good weather after we’ve both finished work to watch the sunset once and awhile. Thought I’d share a few of the end results today so here is my point of view of dusk landscapes, with that multiple exposure twist.

Double Exposure: Vieux-Montreal

I’ve taken a ton of photographs of the Silo #5 building in the past, the most recent being the  “We Wait for Trains That Just Aren’t Coming” . These were actually taken on the same day from the other side of the canel so you can get a much better idea of the expanse of the structure. I enjoy anytime I can play with multiple exposure and reflections on water at the same time. I probably should have shared less photos but sometimes I can’t help myself. I do love this building very much.

Double Exposure Wednesday: Water Tower

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

Last weekend when Victor and I went thrifting in the Sainte-Marie area we spotted a water tower in the skyline and decided to check it out. I think we’ve walked by it before but this was the first time we had a good look at it. I snapped a few multiple exposures to show you and added it to my list of things I want to climb. I even figured out a really interesting route of getting to the base of it so it would be possible to climb up its narrow barely there ladder to the top ring. Although my photos don’t really show it, it happens to be on top of the roof of an abandoned factory building (that looks like it might be getting converted into condos soon). So it’s a pretty tricky to get access to it. Victor thinks I’m nuts because it would require going up the fire escapes of the buildings adjacent to it and getting on their roofs before hopping across the different leveled roofs of the factory buildings before you get to the base. I remember always climbing onto the roof of my elementary school and my two story house when I was really young, clearly I haven’t grow out of it. Might not happen but I’d like to think I could try this summer. Oh, I also included double exposures of the church that was in the same area.

Double Exposure Wednesday: We Wait for Trains that Just Aren’t Coming…

We didn’t go inside the factory or silos but we did get inside the fence and had a chance to explore around them. To me the best part was going underneath the huge lines that use to connect the building to trains for transporting the grains (at least what’s what I logically assume they use to be for) so I wanted to share those photos first. I have plenty more double exposures from the front of the building as well but thought I’d share them in another post likely in mid-May as this post would have been huge so look out for that if you enjoy abandoned buildings. I’m so excited about being able to leave my house again. Recovering my concussion is going well and just maybe this summer I can get inside the Silo #5. Can you imagine the view from there?

Double Exposure: Valkyrie

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

double exposure (3)My 52 Weeks of Self-Portrait project really got me exploring self-double exposures. I shot these back in January using a kitty mask my best friend Ana gave me for Christmas and as I said during my original 52 Weeks post, I thought I looked like a Valkyrie for some reason. I love Valkyries as they remind me a lot of artwork of Lord of the Rings. Norse mythology is also very interesting and anything with badass females I can get behind! I find it’s hard to achieve photography that I find haunting and these definitely have that vibe to them so I wanted to share a few more with you. Even though my project just end last week, I will definitely be doing more multiple exposures of myself so you like this style it will not be the last of it (although I do need a bit of a vacation from shooting myself).

Double Exposure: Polaroids

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure, Film, Vintage Cameras, Vintage Tuesday | Leave a comment

I absolutely love taking double exposure with vintage Polaroid land cameras, although not always successful it’s really fun to test and see what you can get. I’ve shared these photos before but wanted to reshare them as after a year of taking multiple exposures with instant film these are my personally most successful. I find using trees as one of the shots usually results in an interesting result however putting this post together I realized how often I use them and really want to explore this summer on using more variety. I’d love to do a series of double exposures with graffiti from around Montreal so hopefully I will get a chance to explore that idea more. Man it feels like a really long time since I’ve actually used my Polaroid Colorpack or Super Shot cameras, I really need to pick up more film and get back into shooting. Hope you enjoy the shots.

52 Weeks of Self-Portrait: A New Sky

Posted by Citizen Erased in 52 Weeks of Self-Portraits, Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure, Self-Portrait Sunday | Leave a comment

51/52 A New Sky

52 weeks of self-portrait double exposure (3)A new beginning! It’s starting to really hit me that my 52 Weeks of Self-Portrait project is over. Just one more than I’m finished, I’m not hundred percent sure what I am going to be doing for it but I really want to do an elaborate photo-shoot (we will see if time and weather permits that). I think it will feel really weird when it does end as I am so use to coming up with ideas for it and planning shots or concepts I want to do. Not that I can’t keep creating those ideas but its different when you don’t have a time restraint. I feel like I’m one of those people who loves making myself busy, yet I am insanely lazy all at the same time? I don’t know how that works. My week off of the blog was nice in a way but I didn’t spend as much time as I wanted on my website or my crane projects. Without deadlines I think I’m a little lost. Feeling a bit down about that however this photo really made me feel like the 52 Weeks project was worthwhile. Hope you have a good week and I’m back this week with daily posts.

And under
Dark doves will fly
Over a new sky
I’ll wonder
Oh who you are”
