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)

Multiple Exposure: Parking Lot

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

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.

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.

52 Weeks of Self-Portrait: A New Sky

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.

Inspiration:

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

Double Exposure: Bridges and Factories

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.
