Location:Building: Roma Street, Brisbane; Graffiti: Bundamba Railway Station, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:THIS is what I had in mind when I went searching for double exposure opportunities. One is the Queensland Police HQ on Roma Street, the other is a graffiti covered wall at Bundamba.
The camera & lens:Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 19mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode)
Exposure: 1/400" @ f/13, ISO 400 ((for the building). (f/5 1/60 for the graffiti))
- Layer 1: Roma St building, opacity 100%
- Layer 2: Bundamba wall, method: darken, opacity 93%
- Layer 3: Levels adjustment, blacks 0->21, midpoint +0.8, whites 255->168
- Noise reduction: Luminance +30
The wash-up:I had considered cleaning it up a bit at the top and the bottom. Then I thought about how double exposures are meant to be hectic, hit-and-miss affairs... so I left it as it was. Please feel free to take it further if you like! The .PSD file has a bonus layer of my first attempt of the wall, that didn't line up.
