friends from work

C: Wide lens Superheadz. F: Fujifilm Fujicolor Superia 200

Just couldn't resist taking more photos of that family of ducks near work!

Thank you for the wonderful comments about my double exposure photos in my last post! For those asking how I did it, I'll try my best to explain (bare with me!). First of all, I took a picture of the main  shape (i.e. the paper heart, a decorative paper hanging, a plain mug) against a window. This creates a strong silhouette where the shape is dark and the surrounding is light/bright (due to the light from the window). Then when I rewind the film, and take another photo, the second photo fills the dark part (the silhouette) more vividly than on the other areas of the photo. In a way, the dark part of a photo can still be "used"... if that makes sense. I used the same theory (if it can even be called that) to do the last photo in this post, with the hand prints and "city of Melbourne" sign. Those prints were originally painted on a black wall, so the colours of the lake and grass fills in the darkness of the wall.

... To anyone who managed to read through all that and even understood: congratulations! hehe. Sorry if it was confusing, I probably wrote a whole paragraph of something that could've been explained in 2 sentences!
