Double Exposure: Cemetery Ghosts

Posted by Citizen Erased in Black & White Photography, Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure | Leave a comment

forest cemetery multiple exposure (23)Since it’s just a few days before Halloween I wanted to share some multiple exposures that were taken at the same forest cemetery that I featured last week. I’ve been watching a play through of the old Japanese Playstation game Fatal Frame that’s all about taking photos of ghosts before they kill you and these double exposures remind me of that. Although no real ghosts featured just Zara who in my version is the main character Miku Hinasaki.

52 Weeks of Self-Portrait: Autumn

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

30/52 Autumn

citizen erased photography 52 weeks of self portrait  (1)Spent so much of my week going for walks and enjoying Montreal while I can before it’s hide-inside-season. This self-portrait was taken at Parc LaFontaine while I was passing by. I was taking photos of the trees as I just love the ever changing colors of the leaves and this tree seemed to have every color imaginable. After a few shots of the tree I decided I wanted to be a part of it and devised this shot. It took a few tries to get one I really like but this feels the most special and is only the 2nd double exposure I shot of the day. I’ve included another one below that I also really like – it’s hard to choose some weeks what photo to feature. Also my inspiration for this week and worth a listen is my wonderful boyfriend’s mixtape. It’s his first one he’s made and he decided to feature only Montreal electronic artists, I think it’s really mellow and perfect for the season!

Inspiration:

Vic Mella ‘MTL Fine Cuisine Mixtape’

Double Exposure: Jacques Cartier at Dusk

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

multiple double exposure sunset (12)The summer was sunrises but it appears I’ve switched to collecting sunsets now. I’ve seen so many wonderful ones in the last two months it is hard to say which my favourite was. The ones I’m sharing today were the first of the season just in the very end of August when me and Victor went for an impromptu bike ride in the Vieux-Port and found the usually pretty lame Tower Beach was free and open late (there was also a pretty awesome DJ playing real classics of the late 90s and early 2000s). We had brought a picnic with us randomly so we got to enjoy the sun set while stuffing our face and putting our feet in fake sand (we even sneaked in some alcohol like teenagers). I might have spent a good deal of our time there taking photos of the ever changing and dynamic skyline in front of me instead of relaxing….

Beach Polaroids

polaroid super shot instant photography (19)

For this week’s Vintage Tuesday I wanted to share with you some of the instant photos I took while camping a few weeks ago in Ontario. We went to the main beach of the Sandbanks Provincial Park in Prince Edward County on both days of the trip so we could swim and enjoy the sun. It was a blistering hot day, although the water was still pretty chilly on both days. The cold water didn’t stop me and Victor from enjoying it and spending most of our time swimming. I just had to take photos of Victor in the water because I loved the composition of him with the water around him and the beach in the background. I did take a few landscapes shots of the beach dunes and the park, and the beach itself as well. The beach was so sandy, a big change from what I’m used to. We definitely don’t have beaches this nice in Quebec. All the photos I’m sharing today were taken with my Polaroid Super Shot using Fujifilm FP-100C.

Double Exposure: Bridges and Factories

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

I’ve been biking a lot down the Lachine canal here in Montreal because it’s a great ride from my house through Vieux-Montreal and then to follow the canal.  Me and Victor love going together on the weekends and seeing how far we can go and this month we went and stopped a few times so I could place cranes along the canal for my MTLcrane project. At all the stops I managed to take a few double exposures of the cityscapes around me, bridges, and of the Canada Malting Silos that I’m obsessed with.

26/52 Mermaid

self portrait 52 weeks project mermaidLast week’s self-portrait for my 52 Weeks of Self-Portraits is a little late because we didn’t arrive back from the trip until really late on Sunday and I’ve been in a really weird head space from work for the last few days. This is my mermaid portrait I was very excited to take and I think it turned out nice and dreamy. Although I’m a little addicted to taking multiple exposures of anything and water as I love the water-painting effect the ripples create. I spent so much of this day swimming and ended up sitting in the shallow waters of the lake taking photos of my toes and the water and doing other silly things that an adult probably should do for the afternoon. Oh and my inspiration this week is actually just the M.I.A. song that was played a millions times on the drive there and back as my friend I think only had 1 CD in her car (Slum Dog Millionaire soundtrack). I’ve been listening to her a lot in the last two months, if you don’t know much about her I suggest reading her Wikipedia as she’s really fascinating even if you aren’t into her music.

Inspiration:

“All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG!)
And (KKKAAAA CHING!)
And take your money”

-M.I.A. “Paper Planes”

Double Exposure: Factory

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

double exposure (30)This week’s double exposure post has photographs taken during a walk through Vieux-Montreal at the beginning of summer. Most of the photos are taken of the factory that is the far side of the port, however there is a few of the Jacques-Cartier bridge as well. My personal favourite is the one above which is the factory double exposed with the river, makes it look like a water color painting. For more non-double exposed photos of my walk check out the earlier post here! Let me know what you think of my optical illusions.

Factory Polaroids

A few shots today taken with my Polaroid Colorpack IV of the Canadian Malting Silos that I am obsessed with here in Montreal. I wish I had a chance to  explore the inside but it’s bolted up pretty tight at the moment. Enjoyed biking there and having a look around the place anyways with Victor. The double exposure of him and the silos was the most successful shot of the day I think.  If you want to see photos taken with my Nikon click here! The two below are shots of the canel that goes through the area where the factory is and goes all the way to Vieux-Montreal.

Summer in Instant – Part 3

Posted by Citizen Erased in Double Exposure / Multiple Exposure, Film, Instant Photography, Lomography Wednesday, Toy Camera | Leave a comment

More summer instant photography taken with my Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 today.  I love this camera so much I’ve been using it non-stop since it arrived. I  cannot wait to use it more over the next few months and work on my double exposures. This is my last bit of film I took during the summer so it’s a little all over the place. fuji instax mini film (30)My first double exposure taken with the camera. Sunrise from my front window. fuji instax mini film (31) fuji instax mini film (29)From my birthday,  the sunrise (again) but this time from the Jacques-Cartier bridge. The second one is also a double exposure.

We’ve been spending every weekend we could there since, we love it that much. I just love the rainbow film – it’s random but neat.

 Remember to let me know in the comments if there is a particular camera you want to see more photos of. I have a few rolls of film from my Disderi Robot 3 camera I got developed recently that I haven’t shared so those will be probably be the next ones!

23/52 Mtlcrane

mtlcraneA little late but here is this week’s self-portrait, a shot of me and my crane embodiment Luna – Luna who likes pina coladas and getting stuck in the rain. *laughing* This was taken today (which would explain why I’m post this close to midnight) while I was doing my mtlcrane project. I will be talking more about my crane project this week actually, but in short I am putting cranes up all over Montreal with little name tags with silly 80’s songs and I name each one and take photos of them before walking away. Today I hung up my favourite crane which I gave my name and I thought it was just the perfect representation of me (I’ve included my feet as well as I loved the texture of this bridge).  The placement of the crane also has a weird emotional attachment to me because this particular bridge reminded me so much of my birth place Edmonton, Alberta. I lived there until I was 6 and the one thing that left a big impression on me even after all these years was the bridges they have there. This bridge was the same color and material as the one near my childhood home so it’s very appropriate that my crane was placed there. Today’s inspiration by the way is the amazing new Aphex Twin song  – it’s too good.
