Not wanting to do any photoshop work + not having any clue how to do multiple film exposures = my attempt at creating multiple frames in one image.
Pretty easy actually, but the technique only works in pure darkness. You’ll need a trigger-able hot-shoe flash for this, unless your camera is more newfangled than mine and does some wizardry on-board.
- Acquire pure darkness. If Hell isn’t available, a backyard works better than a room (light bounces on walls).
- Set your camera to a long exposure. 10, 15, 30 seconds - whatever you need. You’ll work as fast as you can. might at well set your lowest ISO as well for a smoother output.
- Point a flash right at your first frame (my straight on noggin in this one).
- Fire off your long exposure
- Trigger the flash for the exposure
- Reposition the subject or your camera
- Trigger the flash for the 2nd exposure
- Wash, rinse and repeat until your happy with your result or your flash runs out of batteries.
