These are photos I shot for a multiple exposure film project last summer. This project was a really fun one for me. Let me explain how I did this shoot. I went around Los Angles and shot photos of all these different backgrounds on film. I drew picture of what I shot and rewound the film to shoot later. Next I set up a studio shoot with my friends Lisa Sheldon & Saori Renteria so that I could shoot them on the same rolls of film that I shot the backgrounds on. I used the pictures to guide me as to where to place them in the frame. I remember they were asking me what I was shooting and it was so hard to explain. I did not even know if it was going to work. I think they were tripping out a little bit. The reason I shoot on film and did not just do it in Photoshop was because film reacts differently to layers than Photoshop does. Film will layer by color from light to dark. For example a blinding will be behind the person and on top of them base on the colors in it. You will also get things that you never expected. With Photoshop I would have just ended up making every thing look perfect. The beauty of film is you get mistakes and those mistakes have been some of my best photos. This was just a test, we could have done it way better, but when you don’t have a budget it makes things hard. I would love to do this for a mag or a client one day. Could you imagine what it would of look like if I had shot it on a 4/5 camera? There are some more of these images on my website if you want to see more.
