Weekly photo challenge – MERGE

MERGE = Double exposure, right?

Well, though I’m into film photography, this was an obvious choise. No PhotoShopping, no tweaking, just my beloved negative, as is!

To help me with this, I used my little Lomo LC Wide, a true wonder with a 17 mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens, and a MX button that is making a double exposure very simple; push the shutter button, push the MX button, take one more exposure, in this case I just put my camera up side down for the second exposure.

The film I used is a Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 ISO, with the ISO set on (200×2=) 100

The motive is from the little coastal town I live in, Norrtelje, Sweden. It’s the little river that runs through the center of the small town, very charming.

Enjoy, and be inspired!

    • Thank you very much!
      Yes, I really love that technique, to just turn the camera up side down and take the second exposure, it can sometimes make very interesting results. Well worth trying!

    • WHAT, nobody told me that!! 😉 L O L !!!
      Well, actually it’s not a toy, it is a very competent camera, you’ll be surprised!
      And I’m not in any way underaged, and in the Lomography community there is lots of us, and lots of people in ALL different ages, so I guess that the “children thing” is nothing byt a myth… Check out for yourself, and sign up and join, it is really a very very nice, kind and inspiring community! http://www.lomography.com It is free!

  1. I enjoyed and I am inspired me to do more redscale. I plan on presenting Monday and Tuesday a two part series on some of what I did along with some theory to explain why redscale needs to be over-exposed by 2 to 5 stops.
