double exposure september: take one

When was the last time that I mentioned that I'm not in school anymore? A while ago, right? And now I find that I have a bit more time for creative projects, between full-time work and getting married in two days! (Secret: I prepared this post in August because there is no way I would have time two days before the big day!) TWO DAYS!

Okay, that's out of my system now. So here's the deal...a little creative challenge for the month of September. I hope that you'll join me!

I love taking photographs and love playing with cameras that take multiple exposures or half frames. I have a Diana+, a Holga, and a Golden Half and I love them all, though I have to admit that the Holga is still my favourite. Above I've made a little list, the idea being that I will take a photograph every day through the month of September and get the whole roll printed at the end of the month. The trick is, I'll only advance the film every second day, making 15 double exposure images that capture the month. I'll be sure to share the results here and on Flickr. The project is set up to work really well with medium format cameras that take 16 photos to a roll, but feel free to use a half frame camera if you're lucky enough to have one, or a regular old camera that doesn't do double exposures if you want to join! I hope this project will give you some inspiration to get out there and take some photos this month!

If you are playing a long, be sure to add me on Flickr or tweet me links to any posts you do about your photos. I'd love to see what you come up with. Oh, and back when it was still a few weeks before the wedding I created a simple printable checklist that I've shared here.

Okay, it's day one! I'm going to take a photo now! TWO DAYS and then I'm a married woman!
