Tokyo FlipSide: 001

    Newer Older

    Ever since I was a kid and saw the Thames Television logo [see here:] I have had the image of a mirrored or inverted city in my head.

    Playing with the multiple-exposure feature on my camera today got me some results that I am pleased with.

    ...and which have spawned a fascination with finding/creating similar scenes from all over the city. And improving on this first attempt. I think maybe it might look cool with just the centre strip and no detail in the rest of the image. Anyway, will continue experimenting.

    Nikon D300
    Nikkor 20mm f/3.5 AiS MF
    Processing in Photoshop with Nik filters, to bring up the defintion of the centre strip.

      I wish I could see it larger. I keep squinting at it because I feel like I'm missing parts of it.

      how did you used multiple exposure?

    7. Alfie | Japanorama 56 months ago | reply

      There is a multiple exposure feature on the D300. I hadnt touched it much before today. Was looking back at some 'accidents' and some other shots I had taken in the past on my RB 67 and Fuji GSW690, where I had shot multiples on one frame of film and decided it was time to give it a go on the D300.

      This is brilliant. Looks like you used a tripod, simple thing to turn the camera upside down, but great idea and effect. I like the abstract, minimal style of the strip.

    16. Alfie | Japanorama 56 months ago | reply

      No tripod but yes, camera flipped through 180.
