When searching for multiple exposures in our Photos section, you will definitely come across Hodaka Yamamoto (@hodachrome)'s astounding photographs. You will be in awe, wondering, "How the hell did he come up with such photos?"
Shooting multiple exposures is fairly easy to do, but achieving flawless results takes a lot of trial and error. Hodaka has mastered this technique so well that his photos always look clean and thoughtfully composed. The layers of images are never placed at random—you can tell that each exposure has a purpose, and that is to complete the whole visual story.
Sometimes, Hodaka takes it even one step further by combining two techniques: multiple exposures and film soup. Even when experimenting with a lot of details, you can still clearly identify the elements that seamlessly work together to form his vision. He's also kind enough to share how he takes symmetrical images using the EBS technique. It's one of the most popular tipsters in the community!
Through Hodaka's lens, an urban landscape suddenly becomes a fantasy land. A portrait transforms into a surrealist masterpiece. Nature scenes take a dreamier, more mysterious vibe. Sometimes, we need a momentary escape from the mundane, and his juxtapositions provide us that welcome break.
