the Creativity Project :: September, 2014 :: Double Exposure

When Maddy and Scarlett and I started the Creativity Project in April, 2012, we did it to expand our horizons.

We wanted to do try new things and shoot for ourselves once in a while.

We have had so much fun over the past 29 months.

This month we decided to try the theme of Double Exposure again.
I am ashamed to say that it took me almost 3 hours to come up with these two mediocre images.

I used this tutorial, and it was excellent and SIMPLE, but for some reason, nothing I was trying was clicking.

Oh well. You win some, you lose some.

Maddy is next in our circle today. 
I just had fun looking at some of her old posts.
Maddy is one of my best friends in the world
She inspires and encourages me every day.

If you have any double exposure images you want to share on the Creativity Project facebook wall, we would be delighted to see them!

I'm fascinated by double exposures and keep meaning to experiment with them. (my camera even lets me do them "in camera" - but y'know, that's one more techie thing to figure out ... someday (smirk)

I love your farm photos. I think these blunted together perfectly. Your themes have wonderful depth, and have expanded my horizons from the very beginning.

Tomorrow I am going to shoot a family event. I love the way you have done this for so many people. I will be putting my Becky on. Thank you so much for inspiring me. :-)

Love the way you captured the theme.
Perfectly wonderful.
I went to Maddy's post and wept.
How beautiful and poignant.
She hit the theme as perfectly as possible.

Becky, I think because you are an artist, you judge your own work harder than the most severe critic. I love your photos and the way you see life through that lens.
