Behind The Lens

This photo was taken on my windowsill in my home. My cat was peeking through the blinds looking at the birds and it was the perfect opportunity for her to stay still.
This photo was taken around the afternoon time.
I wanted a well lit and airy photo that allowed me to work with the double exposure aspect. She was facing towards the window so it worked.
This photo was shot with my Canon 70D using the double exposure setting and Sigma Art 35mm lens.
I was learning how to do double exposures in camera and I wanted to have a dreamy photo of my sweet cat, Arabella. So I worked on my double exposing until I got this perfect shot that allowed my vision to come to life.
I did very little post-processing on this image. The double exposure was done in camera so that was helpful in reducing post-processing work. I did take the image into Lightroom and reduce the warmth to make the whites pop, increased clarity and introduced slight noise reduction.
In my camera bag
Currently my camera bag always contains my Canon 70D, Sigma Art 35mm lens, Canon 50mm 1.4 lens and I also carry a small copper pipe and prism for creative photography.
The biggest piece of advice for anyone trying to capture double exposures is to be patient and keep practicing! It's all about finding what works for your vision. Play around with various backgrounds and textures to make your photo pop. Double exposures always work best when your base image is taken against a solid, neutral colored background (I've found that a white background is best).
