I thought that I'd quickly tell you how I make my double exposure images with my Holga and Diana cameras. For anyone who is new to the concept, double exposure photography is simply two images taken on top of one another in-camera. This is different from sandwiching or stacking negatives in the darkroom. With a double exposure there is only one negative.
I've said previously that I like to work with slow film; asa 25 or asa 50. I don't think too in-depth about how I'm going to go double. I'll shoot and then I'll either move in close, back up or flip the camera upside down, or turn it sideways. This is yet another reason why I like plastic cameras; the possibilities are endless. It is rare that I'll do a triple exposure, but of course I've experimented to see first, how the image will come out, and second, how it affects the film and whether or not the image is fried (over exposed).
