Untitled 14x MX Nude

I am playing around with masks and experimental photography these days. This one is a nice addition to my abstract series, a 14 times multiple exposure of eyes, girl, drawing. A stressful job, especially changing the mask for each exposure and then adjusting the height of the camera to get the eyes becoming bigger. At a certain moment even the exposure has to be adjusted due to bellows being fully extended.

    @fragakis_p Thanks for the kind words, but there's many flaws to be dealt with in the next attempt;) Let's see if I can fly higher

    @pumetto Grazie mille! It was a first try of a rather freaky concept

    Are this your first time trial of mx masking? If yes very precise and neat 👍 and I could say one of the neatest here along with hodachrome and earlybird 🎩
