    Question Making photos with the same person in different poses???

    Just curious if someone could explain their secret on taking shots with one person, in different poses in different positions in the frame, all in one photo. Does that make sense? For example, suppose I wanted to take a photo of myself sitting on a chair, then in the background, there I am again, say looking out a window, and there I am again over in the corner reading a book. How do I set up my camera for a shot like that (exposure, focus, etc..) and how do I put it all together?

    Happiness belongs to the self-sufficient

    Look me up on Flickr and Facebook!

    Try this tutorial for the putting it all together part.



    As for the rest - I've never gotten great quality shots when I've tried this. I used the widest angle lens that I owned, exposed for the light in whatever room I was photographing in, and focused around f/16 just sort of in the middle of the room. You'll probably have to play around a bit to get the right settings for optimum focus.

    ive gotten a couple really great quality shots like this (IMO =P)
    generally what you want to do is lock your exposure for all the shots so the exposure is the same in every one, then you can either use a small aperture to get everything in focus or just adjust your focus for each shot
    heres a couple that i took a while back



    oh, by the by, the technique is called Multiple Exposures
    at least thats what ive called it for like 6 months

    Ok, this looks like allot of fun. Once I get some free time, I'm so doing this.
    Browse my photos on Flickr, if you like.

    Currently a Pentaxian. Favourite lens: 100mm f2.8 Macro. I now have all the lenses I need. On to lusting over lenses I want.

    Multiple exposures is where you get more than one exposure on a slide of film.

    That's more like a composite image.

    i don't believe you can do multiple exposures with a digital camera.

    the only way is as suggested. Multiple images shot and composited together in something like Ps. My Avatar was done that way.

    I prefer them actually where the subject is interacting with self. Here my cousin is pouring himself a glass of coke:



    This one isn't very good, though, as you can see there are 'odd' things going on around the two figures in addition to being somewhat soft.

    I believe some one mentioned that Pentax cameras have the ability to do this.

    The D200's do as well. I still call it more of a compositional photo than multiple exposure.

    Can't you do this with the Bulb function on your Film camera? How do you set the exposure correctly?

    One of the new (well - not really new anymore) is the Auto-align Layers. Especially if shooting from a tripod, it is an excellent tool to stack a group of images and paint the details from the underlining images into the final version. Works great for group shots where you have blinkers and smileless subjects without having to copy/paste/feather from one image to another.
