Multiple Exposure: Vancouver Sunset

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)

Vintage Tuesday: Landscape Vintage Slides

vintage slidesLast year I made Victor a slide lamp with landscape vintage slides with voyages from around the world, including the Great Wall of China. I found the perfect selection of slides for him out of my collection for his travelling spirit. Before I make anything with slides I always scan them as I hate the idea of the photo be lost forever so here is look at some of slides I used on his lamp from various people! Ps. If you are interested on how I made the slide lamp, check out my DIY here.

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?

Double Exposure: Along the River

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

double exposure vieux-montreal (7)

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 Wednesday: Vieux-Port

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 Wednesday: No Man’s Sky

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: 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.
