For this week’s adventure in imagery, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge asked you to do some duplication, for K’lee’s prompt; Double the expression through double exposure.
This sounded like fun to me straight away, because I love a bit of mucking about and Audrey is always keen to star in challenge posts, so we went for a bike ride around the local park and did some panoramic experiments.
These weren’t created in the strictest sense of a “double exposure”, because they were taken in one slow pan, with Audrey running round behind me to change position, but the result is the same.
We also did a bit of an experiment with those fancy 360° 3D photo thingies you see on Facebook and Pinterest, except ours aren’t sweeping panoramas of cathedrals or tropical waterfalls; they are of Audrey playing pool in the pub and following herself around the living room.
You need to click each link to view it, then slowly scroll round or move your phone to explore.
After that, I had another idea, while looking through the rippled glass of the door into our kitchen.
This is another example of not-really-double-exposure, but it kind of falls into the same category; in that it’s two photos of the same thing (in this case, me) taken separately, then stuck together again.
I took an ordinary, boring selfie, then took another, but this time through the aforementioned glass door.
Then I created this rather Magritte-like composite image, which I think came out quite well.
K’lee’s suitably artistic offering awaits you, HERE.
But now it’s time for you to share your double visions with us.
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.
