 Post subject: Multiple Exposures
PostPosted: Tue Jan 26, 2010 4:16 am 
Hey guys
Just got my first DSLR yesterday, want to try out some fun pictures and things. Was thinking of starting with multiple exposures.

I've searched around places and they all seem to be doing it in photoshop

Is there an easier way ...i heard something to do with the bulb feature on my camera but im unsure.

I dont own photoshop but i do own fireworks ....if thats any use.

I dont have a remote for it so i was planning on using the timer and the tripod.


Any advice appreciated.
Oh and i meen with the same person in the picture lots of times.

Im sorry if this has been posted before .....i did search the forum.

My camera is the D5000

Cheers
Jimmy

The Bulb function will keep the shutter open for as long as you have your finger on the shooting button. So you could reposition the subject hold still and move then hold still again.

The D90 has a multiple exposure function that does a lot of the work for you, not sure about the D5000 although you might be able to achieve something similar with the intervalometer and clever use of exposure settings.

Hi Jimmy,

I'm sure I've read somewhere that the D5000 can do multiple exposures just like the D90. It's a while since I've used Fireworks, but any image editing application thet supports layers will let you produce a mutliple-exposure effect - and give you a lot more control over the process. Just layer your exposures on top of each other and use a blend mode, such as overlay, for example, so that the ones underneath show through those above. Alternatively you could use masking to reveal only those bits of the scene that have changed in each exposure.

Isn't Fireworks for webdesign/flash?

You can try the Gimp, it's a free alternative to photoshop, albeit with a steep learning curve. My D90 supports multiple exposures, but I'd just merge them into photoshop. Say one shot is awesome, I still have it seperate :)

Yes it is. Like I said, it's been a while. If I recall correctly Fireworks was developed by Macromedia as a Photoshop alternative, then when Adobe bought Macromedia they rebranded it as a specialised web image editor. but if it has layers no reaason why you can't use it to make composite images.
