Weekly Challenge #475 - Double Exposure
Posted By: WondringLisa, 10-15-2019, 01:28 PM

This week's topic is Double Exposure. Double Exposure is a photographic technique that mainly involves combining two exposures to create a single image. The technique yields very interesting results and allows the photographer to produce ghost images and mirror images that tell a story in a unique way that canít be achieved with a single photo.

Good luck!

The Challenge will run from now until next Tuesday night, 22 October 2019. Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Is it allowed to merge two photos in post, or does it have to be in-camera?

I think Pentax cameras can do it in camera, it's in the options for shooting mode (Multi-Exposure).

Nice challenge, this is something that I haven't tried yet. Can you detail a little a bit on how did you get the last image? is it possible to do it in camera?

THe pictures aren't actually mine, i looked for good examples. As far as i know this is a standard feature on pentax digital cameras. If you go into the shooting mode menu (where you select single, burst, timer etc) there will be a mode named 'Multi Exposure'. With that you can expose up to 9 shots in camera, into a single composite image.

There is no way the first and last example were done in camera. It has to have been done in post processing.

Not strictly a double exposure but two images in one.

Holocaust Memorial Bratislavia. No way to eliminate reflections of surrounding buildings so incorporate them.

I've had too many failed attempts at this, but thought I'd give it another go. A bit more successful. Probably need to bring out the portrait a bot more.

I have had many attempts at technique described in the challenge. Results could be best described as interesting but experimental. I have yet to establish a method whereby I can produce anything beyond click/click/looksee. I am out of town with a computer with no card reader. I will perservere and post some samples in a couple of days.

Yes, it all seems a bit unpredictable.

I'm still trying to get something passable in camera. Not that in post processing I can think of something amazing to overlay, but my plan is to get a jpeg double exposure with the gr before the deadline on Tuesday.

My first attempt at this for the challenge, took a few walking around where I live (GR III camera, 50mm equiv square crop). I locked focus close at f2.8 for the yellow foliage.

In keeping with the spirit of the challenge, I withdraw my first entry and enter this one instead.

The main subject being the flowers and the second exposure a red and white street sign. No idea how it would turn out but is ok I think.
