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!
This is beautiful!
very, very cool indeed.
Stunning, well done.
Thank you very much Dave, your kind words are most appreciated!
You are very welcome.
Great shot! Interesting technique! It sounds like I need to try this.
Thank you very much!
Yes, try it, it is very fun and rewarding!
Brilliant! I love your photo and the reflected image gives it yet another level of interest. 😉
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!
Absolutely beautiful, I love the double image. The Lomo LC wide – fantastic.
Thank you very much! 🙂
Yes, it is a truly wonderful little camera, way ahead my wildest expectations! I just love that little cam!
Wow, this is gorgeous!

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!

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.
Ohh, that is great! It will be my pleasure to look at your blog! Please do that!
