Seamless Double Exposures of Milan’s Architecture and People
Lets face it, it takes awhile to get the absolute perfect double exposure. Although the Canon 5D Mark III might make it a little bit easier with it’s live view, the truth is that it takes time. For these double exposures, Francesco Paleari was able to do just that. He merged people with architecture in the most perfect sense.
Most of the time when you see double exposures they’re merging people with trees and flowers. Nothing out of the ordinary, or in a way where you think, whoa that is seamlessly executed. Francesco put a lot of thought and effort into these double exposures because he originally took them for a contest. Sadly he didn’t end up winning, but overall they’re perfectly connected. He aimed to capture “Milan in the profiles of the people who live it every day” and thats exactly what he did.
