This week, we’re featuring an amazing double exposure series from film photographer Virginia Lisbon. Here is more from Virginia about combining experimental film photography techniques with travel photography…
Among the many creative techniques that have stood the test of time, double exposure film photography holds a special place. This creative approach involves exposing a single frame of film to two different images, resulting in a captivating blend of two worlds. When combined with the magic of travel, the result is a series of images that transport viewers to a realm where imagination and reality intertwine.
This technique demands a meticulous approach – selecting the right subjects, adjusting exposure settings, and often relying on intuition to create something truly unique.
One of the most enchanting aspects of double exposure film photography is its acceptance of imperfections. Light leaks, subtle blurs, and unexpected overlaps become part of the storytelling process, adding a touch of serendipity to the final composition. These “flaws” become a testament to the unpredictability of the medium, reminding us that perfection is not always necessary to create something beautiful and meaningful.
