    I recently did a destination wedding and thought it would be fun playing around with some double exposures when extra time presented itself. Definitely fun taking them especially with the X system. I plan on dedicating a whole week or month on strictly taking double exposure shots. Should be a challenging project.
    Below are some double exposure shots and some off camera lighting shots using a Yongnuo 580 ii manual flash along with cybersync trigger.

    Please post some of your double exposure work to see what funky stuff everyone else is doing.

    Thanks

    Great work! I like most of them, but LOVE the last, which I wouldn't even know was a double exposure if not told. I haven't played around with double exposures since I was a kid with a film camera and then I tended to do it in the darkroom rather than in camera. Maybe these will inspire me to give it another shot (NPI)...

    Very interesting, I have not tried this feature yet so it is great to see someone getting to grips with it and posting the results.

    Nice work - I like them.

    Thanks ray! Although the last one is shot using off camera flash not double exposure.

    Thanks! Really enjoy playing around with the double exposure feature. It's a little challenging especially when you don't have time to snap one and look for another scene to mesh well. Especially because you kind of have to take both in sequence or else you'll be killing your battery.

    Here's another one I took a while ago of my nephew with my x-e1. It's my favourite double exposure I've taken so far.

    I agree with Ray - while they are all great shots that last one is stellar!
