    #3-4 are beautiful!!

    I’m curious, did you use double exposure to take these or did you edit them digitally afterwards?

    If it’s double exposure, I would really love some tips because I tried to do it with my last roll of film and it didn’t work out at all, and I don’t want to ruin another roll!! Much love

      it’s double exposed. i have a camera (the olympus infinity junior) that rewinds with a tab sticking out and you can just feed it right back! on an slr you should be able to just rewind it a frame if the camera is all manual. best of luck bb <3

    These are incredible, Olivia! I especially love 3 and 4 as well. Just wonderful. Reminds me so much of the darker, haunted side of LA.
    xo, Tori

    Hey, I tried to post already but I think I did something wrong…sorry if this is a re-post. :P

    Anyway, these are incredibly gorgeous! I was wondering if you shot each photo, rolled back the film and then shot the second exposure, or if you used up the entire roll of film and then went back and shot over it. I have an Olympus OM-2 and apparently it’s quite difficult to shoot double exposures on them…although I haven’t dared to try yet.

    This is so awesome and beautiful and perfect and makes me nostalgic for all things California.

    One of my favourites photo diaries so far! I’ll have to try some of that cross-processing.
    Any chance you’ll publish the photo diary from our London Rookie meet anytime soon? x

    SO beautiful Olivia! Do you edit on photoshop or just analog?
