I am a floor-level three-shift factory worker by profession. My hobbies are movies, reading, photography and living in peace. I'm definitely not a photographer. I just like to use a camera and record a memory of things I see around me. Been doing this since I was 14 years old and I'm not any sort of enthusiast about it. I just like it :)

my cameras:

Those bloggers have it right.

comment Is it possible to do a multiple exposure on an Olympus 35sp?
The next exposure after the completed double-exposure needs to be done with lens cap on, as I wrote in my answer to the other similar/duplicate question. There is no other workaround to it that I'm aware of.

comment Can photographs survive freezing temperatures?
I should maybe add "in this environment glueing of photos does not happen in one year"... Given enough water the photos can stick in each others as soon as the water has completely dried off, like in less than a week.

comment Is the Nikon D5100 really better than the D200?
I hear you @jwenting but to justify the rather brutal tone considering image quality I'd be willing to hear about the lenses used in each camera in this answer.
