As film photography lovers, we all know and appreciate the surprise factor that comes with shooting analogue. We all look forward to that exciting moment of finally looking at our negatives and realizing how magical it is to capture light on film, or how various emulsions produce striking rendition of our subjects.
To further stress this serendipity, many of us make use of multiple exposures, a technique wherein we merge two or more shots, whether with ourselves or another film photographer through a film swap.
The element of surprise and the experimental ways that come with film photography was the inspiration behind Dubble, the world’s first photo collaboration app where users (dubblers) have the opportunity to creating really appealing images. With today’s new update, dubblers will be able to select if they want to mix their photos with the world (current version) with favorite users, or just one picture from their own gallery.
You must be wondering, why is Whattaroll promoting this app if it’s a magazine entirely dedicated to film photography? It’s because we feel it could be a great way for analogue photographers to get a taste of what film swaps are like, since we know it can sometimes be scary to give your address to a total stranger or you’re afraid of having your film lost by the post!
Don’t feel it’s exciting enough? Some of our Whattaroll staff members have used this app with their analogue shots and we feel that the results are beyond satisfactory!
