I took a fabulous class last week from Vivienne McMaster on double exposures. The app I used most for mine was Diana Photo App. (iPhone and Android)
This edit was my first attempt. I actually captured the photos in the app camera rather than choosing from my camera roll. This perfectly portrays my mornings at my computer with coffee, iPad and the wrapper of my gluten free bar. It's a classic.
Diana has a random button that can give some interesting results or at least starting points. One of the best features to me is if you like one of the photos and just want the other to randomize… hold down on the one you want to keep until a lock shows and the other photo will then be changed when you click the dice. That's how I ended up with so many versions with the photo of me walking away by the tree.
When I came across this sunflower and saw how it framed me perfectly I tried all the filters and ended up liking a lot of them. To change filters, just swipe to the left or right, or press on the screen until the filter menu comes up and pick the one you want. (You can't see what you're getting but after you've used the app a lot you'll know which ones do what.)
I love how the top looked on this one so thought I'd crop it. I may do some more editing to it…(who ever knows when to quit right?) Many of you know what a sunflower freak I am so this may be my summer avatar.
Although the class wasn't about self-portraiture, I took this opportunity for some selfie edits because I hadn't done any in awhile.
I thought this one seemed a little creepy but I liked the color.
A couple of my granddaughter...
I couldn't have found a more perfect shot go with the binocular photo. Those binoculars are so heavy she almost falls over every time she looks straight up.
And a few others.
I just realized why I'm so captivated by double exposures… They have an element of fantasy about them. (You know I like to live in La-La Land right?)
Right now I'm wishing I'd done my 100 Days Project with double exposures. They are just too much fun! I'm sure you'll be seeing more of them from me in the future.
