First try at double-exposure
« on: March 31, 2013, 06:19:09 PM »

Let me know what you think. This was taken with a brand new X-20, which among other features has dead simple and very functional "advanced modes" that seem to work surprisingly well.

It is the first time that I found myself easily thinking in terms of superimposed images and composition without worrying about the technique needed to get the results right.

It looks like you'll have fun with that gadget. Show us some more experiments as you do them.

Should be easy to do with separate images in processing??

In retrospect, I guess it was the ease of framing both captures sequentially in real time that I found motivating.

For some reason I've never really gotten excited about combining in post, but in this case it was kind of cool setting it up and getting the shots perfect with everything happening at once and to immediately see the result. I guess I may be suffering from the general societal malaise of prefering instant gratification.

Since the initial excitedment has now died down a bit, I agree I probably could have framed them pretty close to this and combined them later.

Nothing wrong with IG!  :D
I suggested post mostly because you would then still have two originals to do other things with.

The new one is quite nice. I like the fact that it isn't clear what exactly belonged to which image, yet the elements are nicely placed.
