    Hey guys. I`ve come up with an idea of doing a multiple exposure of the same shot, one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one at night. I would think it would be like and HDR image, but what does that look like on B&W film?

    Can't wait to see your result of this experiment.

    Likewise....though you would want to try and not touch the camera the entire day so that the shots were all the same (sure you knew that). I'll be interested in seeing the results from this.

    Wouldn't the shadows all kind of merge on the floor giving the floor a very dark look? But yeah, can't wait to see the results.

    Thanks guys. I guess the best thing to do is just try it out then. Now I just have to think of a good spot to do it at. :D

    Well............we're waiting......

    :lol:

    Just kidding, I think that it's a great idea. Post your results, whether it works for you or not. I'd be very interested in seeing them.

    I'm thinking that would be tough. Even if you mount the camera on a very heavy tripod at some spot where some bystander won't bump it, you still have to re-cock the shutter, which might move the camera just enough that the shots don't line up. Plus, if there are temperature variations during the day, the tripod legs might not expand/contract the same amount. A very small change in angle can mean a big apparent movement of an object far away.

    Since you're using a film camera, I shoot film most of the time, do you have a motor drive or power winder? That could eliminate having to advance the film manually, and eliminating some of the movement...I think I'm going to try the same experiment. If I come up with anything worth posting, I'll credit you for the idea..I'm going to try it on a hard concrete floor, add some weight to the bottom hook on my tripod, and use a cable for the shutter..I think that may help. Hope you don't mind me stealing your idea...but I have question, what kind and ISO film are you going to experiment with?

    J.:mrgreen:

    Uhhh...just dawned on me, I'm going to use a Canon A1, so I can do multiple exposures without winding the shutter.

    Interesting... but my first thought would be to do it in the darkroom instead...

    3 separate frames taken at different times of the day. Expose the paper in the enlarger multiple times, one for each frame. Experiment with exposure times for each frame separately. You can even custom create masks and dodge/burn accordingly.

    Sounds like a whole lot more fun since you can have experiment with reproducible results using the same set of negative frames.



    btw... I tried a similar experiment exposing the same scene using different negatives that had different characteristics in grain. The idea was to isolate subject using a fine detailed grain (low ISO) and background using coarse grain high speed films. The results were not as dramatic as I had hoped.... never got a chance to try again as the class was coming to a close.

    Cool concept.

    Have you or anyone else tried it yet??
    Would love to see someones results (even if it didn't work out).

    Might give this a go sometime - just means I have to stay with the camera all day watching for suspect bypasses. lol
