About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day 123: Multiple Exposures

First of all: Happy Fourth Of July!

I have always been interested in multiple exposures. That is, exposing one frame of film more than once. It can be twice or more. I love the unexpected that comes from it. The tree was shot on Tri-X film. 4 or 5 exposures, made with a Minolta camera, I think it was the Minolta 9xi. The color photo I made today with a Nikon D300. Now, in this digital world with Photoshop ther are many ways to create multiple exposures, or overlay numerous images to create a psuedo multi-exposure. Anyhow, being on vacation in Ohio, with spare time on my hands, I decided once and for all to try out the D300's multiple exposure capability. After a few failed trial & error attempts (I did not have the camera manual to assist me), THe color photo below is the FIRST such digital, in camera multiple exposure I have made. I rather like it.
