One-on-One: This is a "creative photography" project I had been thinking of doing for a long time. And, I have been using it since year 2000. One-on-One is simply a "slide sandwich" (positive sandwiching) technique which is not very commonly used by many photographers. There are two reasons for it; first of all, you have to take many frames of slides to ensure the composition in your head. Therefore, we can say that it is a bit costly method. Secondly, you need to carry a tripod (favorably a heavy one) if you want to work with "One-on-One" technique. What I do here is very simple: I take a picture of the subject with slight over-exposure on the tripod. Then, I take another picture of the same subject by only changing focus and exposure settings (sometimes, I don't even change this). After get the slides developed, I tape the matching pair on top of each other, which is not very easy to align, and mount. In case you want to stack more than two slides, you have to come up with another name for this technique :-) As you can tell from the name of this slide sandwiching technique; One-on-One, I work on the SAME subject in the SAME time & space. I don't combine slides of different subjects taken in different time & space. You can sometimes get lucky in combining two totally different slides, but not always. Here, I have to mention about "Orton Imagery" because after I started to use this technique I have just discovered that I was not doing something new :-( Michael has been using this specific slide sandwiching technique as one of his other sandwiching tricks for quite a long time. Of course, this will not stop me :-) I have a lot to do with the slide sandwiches! Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your visit! And, please don't forget to drop a couple of lines for me. Have a nice day and let the sun shine on you :-)
Biography: I was born in 1968 in Istanbul. Got my first camera (Nikon F-301) in 1990 (actually, my father bought it :-) and started to take pictures first with color films. I literally learned photography from the camera's manual. Then, I switched to take slides in 1993. Since then I have been shooting with slide films. 90% of my portfolio is of travel, landscape, and nature subjects. My b&w works have never seen the daylight except a few :-)
