So a month ago I had this idea to do something with Double-Exposure. I really love the way film reacts to it and wanted to create something myself. I decided to keep it quite simple for my first project and just had this idea of a red line breaking the photo in two. Here I will explain my first experience of getting the ideas out of my head, and turn it into a photo.
The night before the shoot I went to a place with a neon light in order to shoot my whole overexposed Kodak ColorPlus200 with just this red neon line. I tried to take some pictures with a longer exposure to make movement, but also to not have those dots the light makes itself, and a short exposure to have a sharp line.
Then I rolled the film back in when it was finished, and put the whole film in again as if it were a new one.
2. Shooting + results
The day after I met with Yaiza and we shot the roll in the forest. Got a little help from Manu filming the BTS and he ended up posing as well. Here you have the results. : )
3. Final thoughts
I am pretty surprised by how crisp some photos came out, thinking that I shot this on a expired ColorPlus200. Beside this, the photos came out more or less as I expected, but I do think that the results looks more like a strong lightleak than a real double exposure, so in the future I would think of a more specific double exposure.
Also, I think I should have just shot with a longer exposure to not have those red dots from the light you can find in some pictures.
The thing I hadn’t foreseen was the framing of both exposures. I shot the roll twice, which replaced the frame. This is why the red line, or the picture itself gets cut. Next time I would have to count the little cutouts in the film itself when replacing.
