Today’s feature is a beautiful at home session from film photographer Tula Q. filled with light leaks, double exposures, and laughing kiddos. Here are a few words from Tula about her use of experimental techniques and what they brought to the images…
Lately, I am loving how experimental processes can help me evoke not just a visual but a feeling of a moment. Since my goal for 2018 was to shoot at home more, this means I have been shooting a lot of double exposures and playing with light leaks with my kids. Neither of my rambunctious littles particularly like to be photographed, so this has honestly taken out 95% of the stress. Since I have no idea whether an image is going to turn out anyway, I don’t get nearly as stressed about them holding still or making the right expression, etc. We just go with it and wait for the magic in my inbox.
