Multiple Exposure: I Lost Myself

double exposure i lost myself (2)
“I lost myself, I lost myself, you can’t see how, becuse I am just a cloud”

The original concept behind these multiple exposure was for my 52 Weeks Project last year where I took a self-portrait every week for a year. It was one of those moments where an idea just grabbed me and I spent an hour outside freezing trying to find the best angle and combination between my silhouette and a paper mask. I haven’t included the one I end up chosing in this set but you can check it out here.

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…

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.

Multiple Exposure: Glimpse of Spring

For some reason I always feel they do not turned out as well as I expect. There is some really neat and surreal multiple exposure tricks you can do with them (like I’ve done here) but when I shoot with a lot of foreground I am not sure what I don’t’ like but the confusion of the foreground is what I notice most. Below is the singular exposure shot so you see the difference.

See what I mean though that double exposure photos just don’t have as much feeling and strength as it should.

Multiple Exposure: Crescent Moon

multiple exposure crescent moonMy crescent moon multiple exposures are actually from the same sunset I showed you photos of last week here, except a bit later on after the sun had set.  Taken of Lake Ontario during a camping trip in late September. The sky enamored me so much that night I just had to capture the reflection of the silhouetted trees on the water and the extra bright moon. We pasted this particular shot while in the car and I insisted on getting out and taking photos telling them to go ahead. It was nice just sitting there alone watching the moon.

Multiple Exposure: Sunset Waves

Sunset waves are a series of multiple exposures taken during a summer camping trip a few years ago to Lake Ontario The sun was just starting to go down and you could see it disappearing along the water’s horizon, so I captured the sunset and waves of the lake as one.

My Society6 Store: An Update

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.
