A fun/great time-waster app post today: I recently discovered the multi-exposure feature in the classic Hipstamatic app. This lets you take 2 or more photos and the app processes them as one.
I played around with a lots of lens/film combos. You can only use 1 lens/film/flash combo in each multi-exposure…I was disappointed at first about this, but I think that too many effects would really muddy the photo, so as it turns out, it is a good thing!
For this first collage I used a stained glass wolf, ceramic penguin, cat poster and an Inuit bird sculpture in a window. I chose these since I thought they could provide strong form and contrast with whatever second photo I used in the multi-exposure:
I also took some multi-exposures with just random shots(ie less planned than the first set). It takes a moment or so to figure out what is actually in these photos:
Stewie was my main model for the next set, some of which are quite creepy looking, but the upper right photo is probably my favorite:
A final one that is not much of a photo(not sure quite what happened!), but I think it will make an interesting blurry texture for overlays:
I know there are lots of apps that let you do multi-exposures with random(or planned) photos from a photo gallery…but this one is fun because you “compose” the multi-exposure as you are taking the pictures. Quite often though, the final result is still unexpected.
You might have noticed that most of the photos were indoor shots: that is because it is -30 degrees outside!! I think outdoor landscape photos would be pretty cool for this technique- maybe in spring time I will play with that!
