Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Multiple exposures, part of Shooting with the Nikon D5100.
In the old days, film shooters would sometimes create composite images by…exposing the same piece of film multiple times.…To do this you had to have a camera that didn't force you to advance the film…after you'd taken a picture.…If you had such a camera and you exposed the same section of film multiple times…you got strange abstract composite images.…It was tricky to do well because as you exposed to the same bit of film to…more light, you ran the risk of ending up with a wildly overexposed image.…Your camera has the ability to take multiple exposures if you simply enable the…Multiple Exposure option.…
However, it has the added benefit of being able to adjust the overall exposure…to ensure that you don't get a final image that's overexposed.…To configure multiple exposures, go into your Shooting menu.…Down almost at the bottom is Multiple exposures. You've got three parameters you can control.…First is simply turning it on or off.…Second is the number of shots you want combined in your final exposure--you can have two or three.…
