"All these self-portraits are made randomly with a remote control. To get this kind of effect with the Multi-Exposure Kit, I usually choose a dark subject with a light or clear background for the first shot. Then I shoot a second exposure that fills the dark part of the subject, softens the mid-tones and disappears in the clear background of the first exposure. Normally I choose a subject that is not well lit, to enhance the contrast with the first shot. Other combinations are also possible to get different results, i.e. lighting up the subject of the first shot, you will then obtain a more homogeneous effect. I also use flashes for different effects, for a sharper image, and the flexibility to shoot in any kind of light conditions.
The hardest part is visualizing the first shot, and already imagining the parts to be filled with the second shot. My tip is to shoot and try again and again and again!"

    Wow, mind bending awesomeness! This is the most original use of Hipstamatic I’ve seen in a long time. Very well imagined. Really enjoyed these!

    These are the best piece of work of art I have ever come across on this site. Very well use of multi-exposure kit & Hipstamatic app. I genuinely feel one of these gorgeous frame should be a part of Sofitel Brussels art gallery. Thank you sir for sharing the process.
