Ghostly beach (Gakkenflex)

I know this photo in itself is nothing special – it’s really just a simple matter of taking a double exposure. Despite this, though, images like this are actually what initially inspired me to pick up film cameras.  Being someone who has predominantly used point-and-click digital cameras, I had no idea about multiple exposures, and these images totally blew my mind.

It made me happy that this shot turned out well , actually. If you try to do something like this, you’ll have to try and keep the camera in the exact same position for the two shots, or else it will turn into a big massive blur.  I wasn’t sure if I managed to achieve that, but it seems to look okay.

Fiery Temple (Gakkenflex)


Yeah, I used this photo in my Gakkenflex review, but I love it so much that I think it deserves its own post. Once again, this was the result of not fully winding the photos, but it made for a great result. I’m pretty sure the bottom part of the photo is due to extreme light leaking because I didn’t wind the film far enough when I loaded it, before taking this photo. And the top part is the next photo overlapping onto this one.

All in all, it makes it look like we all live in the sky, above a temple… which is on fire!
