Multiple Exposure

I studied A Level Photography for two years before going on to do my Graphic Design Degree at university. Although this aided my graphic design skills, it was a totally different process and learning method and something that still to this day is a skill I am really proud of. 

My favourite project was experimenting with multiple exposure. Using my digital camera, I set myself and my model up in a dark room so that no outside light could interfere with my outcomes. Setting the camera to long exposure and multiple flashes, I asked my model to move freely around the room, move her arms, spin around and so forth, whilst the camera was going off. This resulted in a single unedited photograph with ghostly images of the model in the different positions she was caught in when the flash went off almost as if i had superimposed two or more shots together to create a single image.

The idea behind the set of images for this project was to reflect the need in modern day life to be in several places at once. The rhythm and cycle of day to day life has become chaotic and erratic, full of fluctuating highs and lows, and it always feels like there are never enough hours in the day. When we take a step back and look at our lives as an outsider, we realize that, ultimately, we are the ones in control of our lives. The eerie, ghost-like images of these long exposure shots reflect the unnecessary directionless and busy aspect of life and express the various emotions we feel as a result.
