At the moment the Betuwe is turning into a magical place. I think after the weekend everything will be white of blossom here. It's great to see. So if you have time you sure have to be here.
Last year I have been experimenting a few times with double exposure. It is a really rising element in the world of photography.1,5 years ago when I entered the flickr forum, and I discovered the wonderfull pictures of the Germain Photographer Sandra Bartocha. She makes really beautiful pictures and uses also double exposure.
In Holland Loulou Beavers is well know for this with her beautiful serie 'dreamtime'. And now days its coming up more and more.
Last Year I have experimented with it too. I don't find it easy to do at all. So most of the photo's went straight into the trash-bin. The ones I did posted were on zoom.nl. See below. I tried something with trees because I most like it for landscape photo's because it really adds a certain mood.

I also made a shot of blossom then.
That was the moment I knew I wanted to make photo's with blossom trees. I had a picture in my mind
I wanted to do it with the old high tribe trees (hoogstam bomen) So finally the blossom is here. And I made some shots. However it is still not what I have in mind because the area around is not totally what I am looking for. And I was looking for the evening backlight. But it is fun to experiment with and I hope I will get the opportunity as I have it in my mind.

I do get questions if I use it for my macro photo's. I did experimented with it and I placed one photo on zoom. see below. If I see it now I find it much too smooth and not my kind of thing. But it was the first time trying with macro.
I did wanted to experiment with it because you do see pictures of double exposure were the shape of the main object is also in de background and then moved or blurred. I though it was only possible with double exposure but I found out that that wasn't the issue at all. So I prefer to do it without. I tried many times but always ends up by not using these shots because I love the 'normal' ones more. Maybe because I don't do it right.....that can also be the thing :)

2 weeks ago I did a workshop with Loulou Beavers. Great! Nature and Landscape. She is really good in double exposure, long exposures etc and makes beautiful photo's with it. The way how she thinks I really like. Sometimes she forces herself to take one lens with here so she cannot do anything else and this way you have to be very creative. Great thought. I hope I will manege to do that some day :) Up till now I am still carring al the heavy stuff with me........ :)
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a nice weekend.
Some experimental shots of autumn and winter....
You may or may not like them at all. I myself am not sure of all the shots except for reed rhythm.. I like that one. So I say shoot....... I am very curious.
