“Double exposure is caused by taking two pictures on the same piece of film.” – Fujifilm Troubleshooting
That’s the notice I received when I opened the envelope to see my developed film.
Most cameras are designed to prevent double exposure, but my Nikon one-touch 100 was not.
This past summer I brought two rolls of film with me to the Açores. It wasn’t until two weeks ago that I got them developed.
Before getting them developed, I had bought two new rolls of Fujicolor 200 that I planned on using to take pictures around Rhode Island.
At some point I mixed up the four rolls and loaded my Açores film a second time thinking it was a new roll of film.
The outcome of these photos were surprising to me. At first glance I didn’t even recognise what I was looking at.
I found an even light, turned the photos multiple ways, and looked closer to see which photos of mine merged during the development process.
Some of the images came out odd, the others I found intriguingly abstract and peculiar in a good way. I didn’t intentionally make these images, but overall I’m happy with how different they are than my normal digital photos.
After looking over the 76 photos or so, I selected these 10 Images that I want to share with you today!
Pico, Azores in July, 2019
Rhode Island in February, 2020
Although It would’ve been nice to see the original photos I took (especially from the Açores) I can’t complain with the outcome. These photos are unlike anything I’ve taken before and part of what makes me like them so much is how my two homes found a way to merge into one.
Cheers to that.
If anyones had a similar experience I’d love to hear about it! Tell me your story and whether you liked the outcome or not!
