Double Exposures And Beautiful Landscapes – Don’t Miss Our Community Update


Week after week, we state that “photography has the power of lightening up our daily lives,“; and what a wonderful way of kick-starting our frantic routines by diving into some beautiful images in the comfort of our seats!

For those who wonder how photographic cameras can capture ghost-like images, this collection of images is for you! Back in the days of film, this effect was achieved on camera by mechanically stopping the film while loading the shutter. Nowadays, we have digital technology aiding us in achieving this fantastic result. Here's our curation from Tersha's 658th challenge, this time on double exposure!

Photo Of The Week – September 4th, 2023

This time POTW goes to @patrickw and his bold and creative double exposure.
The shot is powerful in so many ways – the composition, the sense of movement, the B&W processing, the minimalism – everything comes together perfectly!
Congrats, Patrick.

Never forget that self-portraiture is way more interesting than selfies, don't you think?

Mastering on-camera double exposure is a fun ride, “an oldie.”

One of photography's most humble features is the capability of registering the visual realm in ways our brains can't render to us. Capturing the world in all its temporal complexity is one of the grandest gifts our beloved craft has given to us human beings.

Here, you'll get your work critiqued by plenty of well-intended people, but you'll also have the chance to critique your peers. We truly believe in the power of criticism and feedback. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:

The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and discuss, so please read the instructions for a better critique experience. Share your comments, opinions, and doubts on any or all of the images above. We also will be delighted to see some of your own images. Don't be shy, critiques are given to photographs and not photographers.
