Memories of the Hunt: An Eerie Double-Exposure

Does anyone besides me find stuffed animals creepy?

During my recent Vermont trip, my assistant and I stopped at a local pizza shop that, as a certain Disney character might have said, used antlers in all of its decorating. The sight of all those staring glass eyes had its expected effect: I drew out my cameras. 😉

The main image was captured using my 7D with a 50mm prime, while the ghostly afterimage effect was brought from Fuji Superia ISO 400 film in a Holga 120 CFN body with 60mm lens attached. I used Photoshop to create a vignetted double-exposure effect, aligning the eyes of both images. Then Topaz Adjust’s Gritty II filter added contrast and static effects.

Exposure Data:
Digital Image: ISO 6400, f/8, 1/80
Film Image: ISO 400, f/8, 1/100
