While we’ve seen our share of cherry blossom tree photos, we’ve never seen one quite like this. Japanese photographer Takeshi Suga created this gorgeous double exposure, called Cherry Blossom Slide, using his Contax Aria camera. Interested in learning how he created the rainbow of colors?
“I went to the same place two years ago and was really intrigued with the view from the top of the slide looking down the cherry blossom trees,” he says.
“I didn’t know the technique back then, so wanted to try it this time around. I took the photo of the cherry blossom first and then took the second image. You may be surprised to hear the second image is made with shiny stickers held against the sunlight. I made them completely out of focus so I could get this result.”
