"Each year my Husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary in the place we were married - Provincetown, Massachusetts. It coincides with an annual charity performance of local performers - mostly female impersonators - who raise money for the local AIDS support group. My husband hates sitting in the front row, but that's where the great pictures are. I used the Watts/Rock combo in part because it was the 'combo of the week' at Hipstamatic Sardinia, in part because stage lighting is actually very challenging to shoot 'from the hip'. Everything is either extremely brighlty lit or pitch black. Rock boosts exposure in dark conditions. I threw in Dreampop flash because it sometimes it creates an interesting flare with Black & White film (not evident in this image). Also, Dreampop actually darkens a photo similar to Jolly Rainbo, but not so severely. I also realized I hadn't been taking that many Multiple exposure shots, so I was experimenting with some technique. The challenge at that moment was not being able to predict the performer's movements."

"This shot is a result from experimenting with the Multiple Exposure Kit. It was inspired by anatomical diagrams from old textbooks."

"Double Exposure of the band 'Heavy Temple' shot at dawn with Hipstamatic combo John S & Dylan. Originally shot for Hipstaroll week 86.

Simply put, I dreamed of this image the night before. I knew a hooded cloak was in the wardrobe plans for Elyse (singer/bass). And I thought the darkness of the early morning, the hood and the backlight would produce a perfect dark void to fill with an additional shot of the band on the horizon line. This was my first attempt and I liked it so much I did not bother to shoot it again.

I shoot a lot of musicians and Hipstamatic is always a good tool for a unique addition to professional DSLR images. The bands really dig the vintage feel the app brings to their look, and I really enjoy the experimenting with different combos for different situations or different visions."

Lens:  Tejas 
Film:  Float 
Flash:  Jolly Rainbo 2X 
Using:  Multiple Exposure Kit 


"After experimenting with a few films for this multi, everything seemed overexposed. Then I went with Tejas for the blues, Float for a darker rendering and Jolly Rainbo 2X to prevent over exposure. The first shot was horizontal and the second was fixed on a cloud formation. This was fun to take!"

Film:  Blanko Freedom13 
Flash:  Jolly Rainbo 2X 
Using:  Multiple Exposure Kit 


"When light goes down, Hipstamatic seeks focus; so I switch off my torch led light and when I switch it on again and shoot, Hipstamatic can't focus quick enough, so i get this blurred effect."

Film:  Sugar 
Flash: off
Using:  Multiple Exposure Kit 


"Double exposure is an exercise in technique. Thanks to Tom's Hipstaclass, I have experimented with multiple exposure and learnt how to use it. I had already tried out double exposure but I had not realised that by moving the slider again, I could use this function 2, 3, 4 or more times. Once I realised this I tried it out, with various backgrounds and objects: on white and on dark backgrounds: the latter was more effective for this exercise. The spoons really caught the light. To avoid any interference due to shaking, I mounted the iPhone on a stand."

"This was a spontaneous image (and mutation). I've been working long hours at work so I decided to take a quick break and shoot a silly selfie with a mutli-exposure twist. Much to my surprise, I was happy (and a bit freaked out) with my first attempt. "

"That photo was a happy accident, taken with the double-exposure feature of the app. My husband is obsessed with boardwalks and I am obsessed with Hipstamatic so I am happy to combine the two to make this photo."

Lens:  Tejas 
Film:  Ina's 1935 
Flash:  Jolly Rainbo 2X 
Using:  Multiple Exposure Kit 


"This photo is part of the portfolio "A convoluted city. These images are from a continuous project I've been doing about living in Hong Kong. It can be a hectic place sometimes; you never really see people just going for a stroll, everyone always seems to be rushing everywhere all the time. I love Hipstamatic's multiple exposure tool and I used it for these images to try to capture the movements and motion of the crowds. It's been good experimenting and seeing under what conditions the multiple exposure setting works best. Anymore than 3-4 exposures and the image is very blown-out, although obviously with lower lighting you can achieve a better result with more exposures. I found that by adding Jolly Rainbo 2x flash the results are a little brighter and clearer, and after experimenting with a couple of coloured films and lenses, I settled on mainly using Tejas with Ina's 1935 which gives you quite bold colours when combined with the Jolly Rainbow flash. I also really like the ambiguity of the black and white images, where the focus is more on the forms in the image."
