One market. One hundred vendors. One thousand tourists.

This is my third and last installment on my first visits to the multiple exposure playground I am calling “Multiple Impressions.”

Walking through the stands packed with clothes and accessories at the open market in Florence, I saw so much color to juxtapose with the silhouettes of passersby that I knew I had to make very expressive and dynamic photos  just as I did at the Games Room and at the Train Station.

I did not remember so many tourists in Florence the first time I visited years ago. And it wasn’t even the high season! The hordes of tourists (that I also engrossed) filled the Ponte Vecchio and flowed faster than the Arno river below. Most didn’t pay attention to the jewellery shops lining the sides of the bridge. I started making multiple exposures of them with OverCam. Just as in the Market I took also photos of the people. The afternoon sun was strong and its light on the people was a perfect match to the sparking gold jewellery on the windows.

Back home I have started using the technique with flowers and gardens. Maybe later I will post some photos either here or in Instagram but for now I hope you  are interested in experimenting yourself with Multiple Impressions.

Again, let me know if it works for you.
