Hi all,

 

Just came back from a trip to Lembeh, and tried doing some double/multiple exposure shots for macro. The end results are some ghostly appearance. Settings on camera was fixed at f22, 1/320s. Strobes power were fixed. Gain for multiple shots was turned on. Anyone has tips on or experience with double exposure ? Some guidance needed.

Your problem is that you are overlapping the two images too much. There is a longer article of mine in one of the issues of UWP mag (don't remember off hand) and this article is also worth a read:

As a matter of interest wouldnt post production give better results?

Thxs Alex ... Just had a read and it was informative. Is there a difference between the image overlay function and multiple exposure shot in Nikon ?

 

Hi Mark, Yes it can be achieved in post production, but having it on a single raw is a challenge.
