Double Exposure - Lily Leaf and Pine Cone

Double Exposure – White Lily Leaf and Pine Cone

When playing with the remnants of my holiday bouquet it didn’t appeal to me to simply photograph dead flowers, so I employed the double exposure function on my Nikon D810.  I used various manual settings to adjust the exposure for the effect I wanted.  I then converted the image to black and white using Topaz Labs.  What do you think?  I like the effect of the pine cone hiding behind a sheer screen and the added texture of the Lily leaf adds another dimension – almost making it abstract.

On a separate note, for those of you who truly love black and white photography I highly recommend subscribing to the on-line magazine – BWGallerist.  I think you’ll find the articles both interesting and inspiring.

Happy New Year!

  1. Sue calls it dreamy. I call it rather eerie. I mean, I love it. But it reminds me of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers! In a good way! 🙂


  2. How fascinating and so dreamy, Robyn! Thanks so much for the link to BWGallerist and a big CONGRATULATIONS on being included on The Best of The Best List!! Way to begin the new year!
