Pride Double Exposures

If you didn't already know, Pride is pretty important to me.

I had a dream that called for creating artwork when I awoke from it. I've always enjoyed double exposures on film. There is both an extra form of control as well as a forced letting go of control in the process. You cannot see if you got it right until you develop the film.

For this series of images, I photographed white roses on a dark background for my first exposures.

Then I rewound and reloaded the roll, and shot over it with various pride flags for my second exposures.

The white roses is the most exposed portion of the film. Photographing them on a dark background leaves the dark areas less exposed. The dark portions pick up the color and light in the second exposure.
