single frame: Double exposure

Double exposure

For the last few weeks I’ve deliberately posted things on this blog to entice you to buy my new book, Square Photographs.

I really hope you buy the book. It’s lovely. There’s no substitute for seeing photographs printed. That’s what a photograph is: an image you can hold in your hands. What I show you on this blog is good and interesting but because they’re not tangible, they are not what are classically defined as photographs.

I’ll stop with the naked marketing now. If you don’t, it’s ok, we can still be blogging friends!

One challenge with the Yashica-D is remembering to wind to the next frame after you press the shutter button. There’s nothing that prevents you from making two, three, ten, or a hundred images on the same bit of film. All you have to do is not wind, and then cock the shutter and press the button.

I forgot to wind after making one image, and so ended up making two. What a waste of film. But it’s not often I share my abject failures, so here you go.

My new book, Square Photographs, is available now!

The Standard Edition is $15.99 at Get yours here.

The Deluxe Edition, on premium paper and ink, is $24.99 at Get yours here.

    I have a whole roll dedicated to this! at some point I shot an entire roll on my Canon A2E and then it must have been from a battery swap or something but the roll got rewound back into the cartridge and then I continued shooting and by the end of it the whole thing was double exposures. It was like doing a roll swap with myself lol
