double your pleasure

Double exposure is something that I enjoy quite a bit. Presently only one of my cameras has the ability to do double exposures. And on occasion when I’m in the mood and in the right neighborhood to do it, I’ll spend quite a bit of time on them. I know that I can do the same thing in Photoshop and have a more controlled effect. But I prefer the chance element and creating the image on location. In one particular place. My series Urban Bliss are all double exposures.

Shooting in the rain

Raining in Harlem – Went out shooting in the rain today! Still uploading photos! I do love photographing raindrops and drive-by shooting at the same time. So many elements of chance in plan. No opportunity to do a shot again. And it isn’t always easy to get a digital camera to behave when it comes to focusing. To get the raindrops in focus has been something I have had to work hard to achieve. When it works, it works! So I had a fun day shooting. 2 January 2017, New York City. www.leannestaples.com
