I will demonstrate a simple technique for doing multiple exposures with consistently interesting results.
There are many techniques for doing multiple exposures. One technique I like to use is to take a picture of a contrasty pattern – a wall, bricks, grass, rocks, etc. The more contrast the better. The black parts don’t expose, so the let the second exposure come through. The white parts will make the pattern. Sometimes I have a hard time finding a surface with an interesting pattern, so I decided to buy some! I went to the local crafts store and purchased some fancy paper with high contrast patterns. I held up the paper in front of the camera so that it would fill the entire image. Then I shot the second image.
Here’s one shot without the multiple exposures.
These are several shots of the same scene using the multiple-exposure technique.
Here’s a shot of a different scene without the multiple-exposures.
