Happy Easter dubblers!

A Brazilian Spotlight!

April 17, 2014

Off to Rio baby!

What’s happening Aline and what do you do?

I’m a visual artist based in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil, working mainly with photography, video and textile arts.

Some of my work can be seen here.

I’ve been fascinated by images for as long as I can remember, still and moving images, and always wanted to express myself through them. For some time I didn’t have the means to do that, but as the technology evolved from film to digital, I’ve been able to practice and hone my skills more and more.

What photo apps you use?

Instagram, Aviary, Photoblender, Instablend and, of course, Dubbleapp. Dubbleapp is by far the app that I use the most on my phone.

How did you meet dubble?

I was looking for something like “best photo apps” or something like that and I found dubbleapp featured in some list… Sounds vague, yes, I can’t really remember. But what I can remember is that I was instantly hooked and mesmerized by it. I couldn’t believe someone created an app that expressed so much of how I feel the world around me. In a way, I think that we all have to deal constantly with superimposing different realities “by chance” in our daily lives. Having an app that does just that brings everyday epiphanies that we can experience and share.

Have you shot multiple exposures before?

No, I haven’t. But some of my art work is based on printing images in tracing paper and superimposing them. Also some of my video work is based on superimposing hundreds of images creating an animation and collage of sorts.

Olga’s five reasons to dubble

April 15, 2014

Time to hear from Olga over in Russia for our latest spotlight!

dubble by: lisihka & dsloanphoto

Hello everyone, my name is Olga. So it all started from drawing back when i was a kid. I later studied to be a designer and now an art director of Dotorg digital studio where I come around new things everyday. One of the main things in a designer’s job is to create something new and innovative.

To achieve this you need to constantly move forward, be familiar with modern and up to date technologies as well as training your creative mind.

For this  we offer designers creative excercises that only take 1 hour every day. Just recently we finished one of our big projects: logo marathon which you can have a look at on our blog. It lasted for 100 days where we created 100 logos.

You don’t only train you mind but express yourself. It’s a fun thing to do before work:) And what’s even more fun is to see the work of another designer who was doing it with you at the same time, but had a completely different outcome. This leads to development and just like Bernard Shaw said:

"If you have an idea and I have an idea, and we exchange them, we will both have two ideas each"

I’m not a photographer. I just simply like to take photos. I enjoy catching moments and keep them as memories. There are hardly any images of myself but mostly images of clouds, shadows, drawings, and accidental shots. All of the images mostly represent my mood at that certain moment.

I’m interested in various apps. I like discovering new ones and exploring them.

Some of many would be FiftyThree, Instagram, Aviary, Glitché, Artpop by Lady Gaga, Vine, Coub…

And I’m certainly a fan of Dubble! I see a lot of creativity and Spontaneity in this app

dubble by: lisihka & dddzlmy

5 reasons why I like dubble:

1. For me it’s like a game. Every processed photo is a new adventure. You send you photo on a journey and you don’t know what will happen to it.

The unexpected result attracts you and everytime time you get excited to discover how it will turn out next time

2. It generates new meanings where a small figure lego can turn into a monster amongst skyscrapers and light cloud appears in someone’s room or on a head of a cat

3.It represents friendliness and openess. Absolutely anyone anywhere in the world can interact with you through photography. I always try to find out who i just connected with and where that person is now. Hong Kong, Barcelona, Ohio, San Paolo. We don’t know each other but we have something in common

4.Easiness, with which it all happens. You press Redubble button and in just a second you get the result. If you don’t like it you can redubble or delete - you

can change everything. Unlike multiple exposure you do not need special equipment or wait for photos to get developed

5. It’s an experiment with connecting photos where as a result we get new images with which it is impossible not to fall in love.

Thanks!

You think you’re busy? Meet Kristal

April 10, 2014

I got stressed the other day because i needed to multi-task two things at once. Then i read this spotlight as it landed in my inbox and decided I needed to get a grip.

My name is Kristal and I live in beautiful Las Cruces, New Mexico. Between us, my husband and I have nine kids (only five still live at home) and six grandkids. I work full time as an Office Manager and go to graduate school full time as well. I will be graduating with my Master’s in Sociology this spring.

image

My grandfather was an avid photographer and, as the first grandchild, I had a very well documented childhood. When I got my first digital camera in 2002, I began taking dozens of pictures a day in order to preserve the memories my own family was creating. My life is hectic and very stressful, so photography is a way for me to relax and be creative on my own time.

I have a dozen or so apps on my phone, but the ones I use most often are VSCO Cam, Hipstamatic, Instagram and dubble.

I saw a dubble on lomokev’s Instagram and checked out the review on his blog. I downloaded it and fell in love!

Have you shot multiple exposures before?

Yes, I have done some myself using different film cameras and also a few collaborations with other photographers. I love that dubble gives the same surprising results without the wait. Every dubble is like opening a present, and who doesn’t love presents?!

Keep it simple

April 06, 2014

For Single Sunday we wanted to show how keeping things simple can really work for dubbles.

Find subjects that are against backgrounds with low tones. As long as the background isn’t bright it will work well. Then redubble until you find the perfect match!
