Stockholm double exposure


My flickr contact Tommi Sakari took this double exposure in Stockholm, Sweden with his Ricoh GRD IV.

He used the term “fake” to describe this but in fact, I don’t consider multiple exposures in-camera as fakes nor do I consider a Photoshop manipulation like HDR or taking out a pimple on a face a fake. It takes skill to make a great double exposure as well as an interesting HDR image.

The term “fake” only has meaning if one says that the image was created 100% in-camera and isn’t manipulated (we could parse that too as cameras, including film cameras do their own things to the image).

For me, anything done downstream (post processing) of taking the picture is fair game to make a great image, as long as we acknowledge it.
