School Assignments

These are some older photos that I took for a photography class.

1 & 2 were for an assignment to make a set of double exposures. The instruction said that we weren't supposed to keep track of what we shot on each frame so the double exposure would be random. I cheated a little in that the first run through, I shot mostly things with patterns in them like the peacock feathers and the brick path. The second time around I shot whatever I wanted. These were two that I've always liked.

#3 was for an assigment to capture motion. I shot it on my first SLR camera, a Canon AE-1P. I had a shutter release and pressed the shutter just as the train was leaving and then let it go after what I felt was a good interval. I was lucky it came out because only one train comes thru the station each hour.

These are gorgeous. Check out Marko Modic's work with double exposures if you get the chance.
