Not staying within the lines

It looks like the fall color is coming to an end soon, judging by what I saw today while driving around. That’s too bad, because I found a new life with it after getting bored taking “normal” shots, I started to experiment. I found the color a nice backdrop, and sometimes even the “subject”, for my multi-exposure photos. Considering the technique, at least at this point, works best with trees it was only natural to emphasis the fall leaves. I hope I can find the same enthusiasm for the “bare tree” season coming up. (Is that enough quotation marks? :-))

I knew of this little cemetery tucked away in the woods in West Virginia and since I was right beside it today I thought I would give it a shot. I took some photos of it last spring which never did much for me (considering they were taken with an iPhone) but I like how this one turned out. This is another in-camera multiple exposure shot of 9 exposures. I was afraid how the hard edges of the tombstones would turn out – a little jagged, but I like the end result. Sort of like a coloring book, but not staying between the lines.

      Thanks Karen. It’s a little too dark though.
