Holga 003 by Nullermanden Holga 003 by Nullermanden
Holga 003

First half of a portrait-project I was assigned in class. Only rule was, that the portrait should be taken in natural light.

Double exposure, not a manipulation.

i love this. the ghostliness of the figure in the background is perfect, and the slant of the tree really adds to the effect
AWESOME JOB :D

Just lots of luck, I guess! As you know with Holgas, there really isn't much technique to it :lmao:

But on a serious note: I enhanced it slightly in Photoshop, but all in all, it really just boils down to luck. One thing to keep in mind though, is where the dark and light areas are in your frame - like in this, I knew there was gonna be a dark area in the tree, and so tried to get the face to be over that area.

Does that make any sense? Like instead of doing a double exposure with a dark lower half and bright upper half in both pictures, do the second with a bright lower half and dark upper. Cause, you know, bright on bright = overexposed, and dark on dark = underexposed :P

Alright, I'm gonna stop rambling now :lmao:

this kinda gives me the creeps.. very good if ya ask me.
It must have been difficult to guess where to shoot at the next frame, so you can have this result.
either that or youre so goddamn lucky! :-)

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love the contrast and the lines. The soft and faint portrait shining through is breathtaking! :heart: When you take double exposures, do you expose each to be perfect or do you under or over expose one to make both show? :blushes: I want to try doing some but I'm unsure where to begin.

Hey naked mermaid :giggle:

To be honest... I just expose! I use a Holga, so there's no real under- or overexposing a shot - you just shoot it :lol: Ever used a Holga? You have the amazing choices between roughly 1/100 shutter, or Bulb :P

I think I try to slightly underexpose them, but not really... It's about trying to figure out what parts of your first photo are dark, as they will be most affected by the second shot! For instance in this shot, the second exposure only turned up really visible in the dark tree... You know what I mean?

And by the way, your art college wouldn't happen to have a special, free program for poor danish photography-students, would it? :giggle:

:eyes: Hey there hot stuff! :giggle: A special free program for poor danish students hm? ;P Apply and find out! Come on over! :giggle: I've never used a Holga but my mamiya has a setting for multiple exposure I want to play with but I hate using a roll of that film and then nothing turning out. I'm so impatient ya know? :giggle: It's pretty easy to tell which parts of a photo will be dark. I guess it's something I'll have to take notes on to check my exposure and image so I know what images will be best to match together. I think it'd be cool to do it random as well... now you have me thinking! :giggle: <3 thanks for the help though, hun. You're so sweeeeeet. :giggle: :hug:

OH no, a fingerprint. your professor will eat you for that, i got an F once for leaving a fingerprint mark. this assignment was also my least favorite, its pretty difficult to get exact times etc. in the dark room, pretty much trial and error for days until you get it right. cool image.
