Berlin Double Exposure

Techniques

After spending a great deal of 2017 outdoors in northerly countries like Iceland, Russia, Canada and Scotland, I was able to turn my photographic attention to my home city Berlin. Switching from the outdoor to the urban landscape was a bit of a challenge – I didn’t want to do your standard city portraiture. I started experimenting with the double exposure feature of my Fuji X-Pro2, which allows you to combine two exposures into a single image. It’s a tad experimental but by severely underexposing one of the images allows for compositions that aren’t too busy. I like the result, and it is always unique, if not anything else. This new approach lead to being a part of their “Liebling der Woche” campaign for the local transport authority BVG on Instagram.
