    Default Multiple exposure - September 2010

    Anyone got suggestions?

    This is tricky. I'd like it to match the main assignment so if someone attempts this one but doesn't feel successful they can still put it in the main one. So, "doors" + what?

    I have an idea,,,,,multiple exposure.

    Either In camera or as a result of PP....but it should be 2 full exposures. - 2 full shots layered one on top of the other.
    (not adding individual elements from one shot into the other shot via selection tools in photoshop)

    anyone can feel free to suggest other topics if they aren't into the suggested topics thus far and the suggestion with the most support becomes September's theme.

    that's a nice idea Marko, and I imagine to get good results is a lot more challenging than it sounds.

    okay, but can anyone do that with their camera? I am not sure how to do it with mine.

    I do not think your camera will do double exposures. Bambi. So, just to understand if I have this correct -if done in post rather then in camera, one shot is layered on the other and transparency adjusted, but no adjustment layers allowed to bring up one part of the picture more then another? For example, I could take a photo of a brick wall, then take the same photo with a person in it and layer them with the plain brick wall both with adjusted transparency on top giviing the person the illusion of being semi-transparent. Just as a simple example.

    Ok, some further explanations, questions. If done with a film camera, you can do one shot then at any time later take another shot on top of that shot. Pretty easy to do with a Lomo, for instance, where accidently doing double exposures is pretty common. I just checked and with my D300 if shooting a double exposure, I need to do the second one within a time frame of 30 seconds or the camera turns it off.


    Ok, so as an example of what not to do. For example, I want to take a lovely night time cityscape with a full moon but in oder to not blow out the moon, I take one shot of the moon properly exposed, then I take a second shot with the cityscape properly exposed. I layer them in photoshop and using an adjustment layer bring out the properly exposed moon into the properly exposed city scene, leaving the overblown moon and underexposed cityscape hidden. Does this make sense and is correct?

    okay thanks jas! works for me.

    D5000 doesn't do double exposure.

    Yes, and no. There is a work around to get a longer interval. Select "ON" for the image review option in the playback menu and extend the monitor off delay using the custom settings C4. The maximum interval between shots is 30s longer than whatever option is selected in C4. So, by selecting the 10 minute option, you have 10 minutes and 30 seconds between shots.

    By the way, you can shoot anywhere between 2 -10 shots and by selecting the Auto-Gain option, the camera will expose each shot so that the composite(?) doesn't appear to be blown out.

    I guess what i was referring to was two or more different subjects, but it doesn't have to be. I'd have no problem with adjustment layers...
    This is just my interpretation but the only thing that wouldn't be allowed is selecting i element from 1 shot and put it into another. It should be two (or more) full images stacked. the stacking can be in camera or in a graphics program or a combination...

    Ok members,
    Suggestion posts merged and the challenge this month is Multiple exposure (sorry iggy).

    Just so it's sort of clear what we are after are multiple exposures (2+) in camera.....And/Or adding full (cropping allowed) multiple images as layers in a graphics program. Feel free to do your normal processing (opacity, levels/curves,masking etc) after that. That would just be a guideline..not so into extra strict rules.

    Ok then? who is going first?

    No apology necessary. I intend on doing a multiple exposure involving doors!

    Wait, what? Only one shot per day? Nah, can't join you in that. I can ensure that I get at least one shot every day and stick with only one lens but I can't limit myself to one shot per day. Sorry :( I took 7 on the way into to work this morning!

    Seeeeee? A little harder than you thought Iggy. Only one shot per day using only one lens the whole month is allowed!
    I may cheat once though for this assignment...shhhh.
