Yesterday, Michael Pick from WordPress’ Daily post team, highlighted an interesting blog post in “Posts We Loved” on the creative use of double exposures.
He writes – “One of the pieces that really stuck out for me as a fascinating experiment, this week, was “foodface – my friends and what they ate (part two).” I was drawn in not just because the photographs in the post are beautifully inventive and really nicely executed, but also because they embody something I think everyone hopes for in a stand-out post: arresting imagery, a different take on familiar themes, and fascinating ideas that add up to more than the sum of their parts.”
A couple of years ago i held a photographic exhibition to draw awareness to the plight of the baboons living on the urban edge here in the Cape Peninsula. Along the same lines but in a different take, here is one of my double exposure photos which was printed onto canvas in A3 size, to draw attention to a lack of conservation aspects. I’d love to get feedback on whether it ‘speaks’ to the viewer or not? Does it convey a stronger message by combining the two images?
