I got to try something new and challenging for this week’s Project 52 theme! The theme was “Double Exposure,” which is where you take two or more photos, and your camera blends them into a single image. It was a lot trickier than I had anticipated! I headed out to the barn before the sun went down so I could photograph Rydell for the challenge. He’s such a funny boy. He stopped eating his hay to watch me as I ran all over the barn, finding different angles and objects to photograph. I must have been very entertaining! Rydell is a big ham and loves to do tricks for cookies. Every time I tried to take a closeup image of his face, he stuck his nose into the camera and tried to give me kisses. A few times he smiled for me, too! I love how eager he is to please.
While most of the double exposures that I captured were pretty bad, I did end up with a couple that I was happy with. This first one is more subtle, combining Rydell’s portrait with the texture of a wood post. The second image turned out better than I expected, too. I’m definitely going to be playing with multiple exposure more now, it’s a great challenge.
Enjoy the images!
