Whitby Double Dips...

I mentioned yesterday that I was hugely excited about this camera, and although I loved the results from the single exposures (the colours!!) this is where all the excitement really is - in the double exposures.

I've always enjoyed multiple exposures but I'm reluctant to do them too often, I guess because I don't want to lose that first exposure and often I just don't make the time to take them. However, having a dedicated camera for doubles was liberating and so much fun.

I really love these results. Really really. I think sometimes I take my cameras too seriously, and most of the time I'm happy with that, but sometimes you need to kick back, mess around, play with the light a little and have fun. And that's what I did with this camera and I really love it for that.

I think next time I'll try and shake it up a bit, I really love the splitzer look and as my LC-A is a refurbished one rather than the plus I can't get the Lomography attachment to do that so I may have gone a bit overboard with that look here but in the name of having fun and being a bit more abstract (perhaps) I think it was totally worth it.

p.s. The lovely Dawn from Candidly Clyde included me in her list of 'ten photo blogs you should be following'. If you love photo blogs then you will love this list, I even found some new favourites too.

12 for 2012 – Camera 5

As part of my 'take more photos' goal for this year - I decided that I wanted to use more of the cameras that I haven't actually used before in my collection. I am a little behind on these but I'm catching up and as long as I get 12 cameras done by the end of the year I'll be happy.


I'm really very excited to be sharing this camera with you, it is the Double Dip by James Butler , a custom toy camera with an added multiple exposure switch - you can read more about the Double Dip here. I'd seen some results around the internet before I took any photos and I was fairly excited about taking this little silver baby out and I was not disappointed!

How fun is this camera? I love double exposures, I usually try to take my holga or diana with me when I go somewhere new but I've never had a camera dedicated to just multiple exposures alone, I think this camera will be going with me to new places now too.

I decided to post this today as 5 more Double Dip cameras are going on sale tomorrow at 9.30am GMT and if you love these results as much as I do, I don't think you'll want to miss out!

You can also follow James on Twitter for more immediate information tomorrow morning.
