"This is a series of shots, taken with the Hipstamatic Multi-Exposure option, of a dark red maple leaf against a white background. I used Florence lens and Robusta film specifically to add a vintage sepia tone and bit of grunge texture to the photos. To brighten them up a bit, I added Standard flash and set Clarity at 30 in the Hipstamatic editing suite.
Multi-exposures can be a bit challenging, but if you’re willing to experiment, they can produce some very satisfying results. I find it works best using a dark subject, such as the red leaf, against a light background. I shoot this dark image first, then I shoot a pattern, such as a piece of plaid fabric, with the second shot. The dark area will then pick up whatever pattern you shoot over it in the second shot, while the white background absorbs the rest of the pattern, leaving only the darkened area with the pattern overlay."
