Olivia’s photo diary from her trip to L.A.
In love with #2.
The first three photos are lovely!
#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
I love you!!!!
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.
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.
I’m in love with picture 11.
I love 3, 4 & 5, really cool
This is so awesome and beautiful and perfect and makes me nostalgic for all things California.
wow I love these so so much. the double exposures are amazing olivia! so much atmosphere. these seem so filmic. I’m flattered to be in such a beautiful collection of photos.
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
These photos are really pretty.
I too would LOVE LOVE LOVE to know how you shot them, Olivia! I’m getting into film myself :)
These photographs are incredible, I wish I had that sort of talent! The whole post is utterly stunning!
SO beautiful Olivia! Do you edit on photoshop or just analog?
What is that awesome lake in pics 4-6?
These photos are so nice! 2 and 3 are my favourites – they’re making me pine for a daydreamy California summer.
So beautiful, I adore Olivia’s job!!
Wow, I love the double exposure effect on these! #3 is my favorite, it’s so romantic.
