    silhouette also works For the second shot bump up the Exposure Compensation to around 2 EV and take a picture of whatever you want I like trees with leafs on them and make sure the background is 100 white for this image as well I would recommend experimenting and taking each shot by themselves to see which settings you need to use in order to get the background to be 100 white for each individual shot 2EV is only an estimate and is only what I was using on that particular day all situations are different The key is to just get the background to be white and not gray use whatever settings necessary After you have taken two shots they will automatically stack and should show up in your LCD screen you can t retrieve the original individual images if using a Nikon DSLR You can then continue to take more and more double exposures until you get a really good one I took dozens if not 100 Some cameras automatically turn off the multiple exposure feature after you have taken one multiple exposure if you find that this is the case for your camera simply turn the multiple exposure feature back on before you take your next set The Nikon D800 has an option to leave the multiple exposure function on all the time making things a little faster The D300s does not If you want to use previously taken shots or don t have a multiple exposure feature on your camera you can do this in Adobe Photoshop The image above was done in PS Here are the steps Create a new Photoshop document and drag and drop 2 images into the Photoshop document so the two images show up in the bottom right in the Layers Palette as 2 layers Select the top layer and then select Screen for its blending mode You also can try experimenting with Multiply The Multiply blending mode will darken instead of lighten Optional You can Dodge Highlights by using the Dodge tool to whiten up anything that didn t turn out to be 100 white Optional You can adjust the Curves of the image by raising the left most lower point upwards vertically a little bit and or the right most upper point down vertically a little bit You can apply the same adjustments to individual color channels in the same Curves adjustment window as well Red Blue Green File Save As 8 Bit JPEG After you have created your images post them in the PhotoExtremist Flickr Group or the PhotoExtremist Facebook Page Be sure to tag them with multiple exposure and or double exposure so we know what we are looking at and can search for them in the future If you enjoyed this video and article on multiple exposures I highly recommend my e book and video series Trick Photography and Special Effects which has over 300 e book pages and 9 hours of instructional video content focusing

    isn t useful for the high key nature portraits Put your camera in Aperture Priority Mode and then select your F Number I used f 4 Put your camera in Spot Metering Mode For the first shot center the Auto Focus Point and take a picture of yourself The background should be as close to 100 white as reasonably possible You can achieve a white background by having the sky fill up the background behind your head having the sun directly behind your head and lined up with the lens will produce the best result Light overcast days are theoretically ideal but not necessary Using flashes against a white wall to create a silhouette also works For the second shot bump up the Exposure Compensation to around 2 EV and take a picture of whatever you want I like trees with leafs on them and make sure the background is 100 white for this image as well I would recommend experimenting and taking each shot by themselves to see which settings you need to use in order to get the background to be 100 white for each individual shot 2EV is only an estimate and is only what I was using on that particular day all situations are different The key is to just get the background to be white and not gray use whatever settings necessary After you have taken two shots they will automatically stack and should show up in your LCD screen you can t retrieve the original individual images if using a Nikon DSLR You can then continue to take more and more double exposures until you get a really good one I took dozens if not 100 Some cameras automatically turn off the multiple exposure feature after you have taken one multiple exposure if you find that this is the case for your camera simply turn the multiple exposure feature back on before you take your next set The Nikon D800 has an option to leave the multiple exposure function on all the time making things a little faster The D300s does not If you want to use previously taken shots or don t have a multiple exposure feature on your camera you can do this in Adobe Photoshop The image above was done in PS Here are the steps Create a new Photoshop document and drag and drop 2 images into the Photoshop document so the two images show up in the bottom right in the Layers Palette as 2 layers Select the top layer and then select Screen for its blending mode You also can try experimenting with Multiply The Multiply blending mode will darken instead of lighten Optional You can Dodge Highlights by using the Dodge tool to whiten up anything that didn t turn out to be 100 white Optional You can adjust the Curves of the image by raising the left most lower point upwards vertically a little bit and or the right most upper point down vertically a little

    software firmware things that could be added without any hardware tweaking Although this list specifically applies to the D300s because I own it and know what it can cannot do a lot of the things apply to almost any digital SLR camera that are produced by Canon Sony Fuji whatever UPDATE 1 31 2016 Things I really want are in bold Things I noticed have been fixed in 2016 using my current camera D810 are in green Anything else isn t extremely important to me personally but I wouldn t be complaining if they added them while still maintaining their simplistic and easy to use interface in fact I would think they would be there by now but they are not There is no sound detection shutter triggering There is no motion detection shutter triggering There is no headphone output There is no sound metering VU Volume Peak meter in camera You can t record audio files I think this feature is on the D3 D4 D5 however The only image recording options available are JPG TIFF or NEF The only video formats available are AVI Nikon has limited the frames per second The camera is capable taking 8fps without an external battery pack but in order to enable 8fps properly the camera has to detect that there is a battery grip attached You can t write your own programs for the camera because the firmware is not open source The majority of these problems almost all of them would be solvable if it was You cannot view non Nikon content in camera on the LCD screen All images and videos must be taken by a Nikon camera in order to be played back in camera It can t meter beyond 30 seconds It can t blend multiple exposures in certain useful ways It only can do whole number fps integers 4fps 5fps etc and is unable to use more flexible values such as 4 2 fps or 4 3fps for example It can t do 2 fps and then 3 fps and then loop that pattern You cannot bracket images with user customized integers values The exposure bracketing only allows up to a maximum of 9 stops The self timer only has 2 5 10 or 20 seconds available for customization What if I wanted 8 5 seconds What if I wanted 40 seconds or 8 2 hours The exposure delay mode can only be set to 1 second What if I wanted it longer You cannot properly set the white balance in camera for infrared photography or ultraviolet photography This feature was available in some very old models like the Nikon D50 especially with JPEGs Why is it gone The WB is stuck at 1 000 10 000k Adobe should expand their white balance values in their software as well then we wouldn t have to go out of our way to make custom DNG profiles every time we take an IR image using a new camera The file naming system is limited It allows only three characters an underscore and then the numbers 0001 9999 What if I wanted the file name to have an unlimited amount of characters at the beginning or end and then the file number for example 00005356342 as you can see it can go past 9999 without being reset to 0001 for no reason and then another set of characters and then a custom variable or two such as the date or camera serial model number Having such as system would mean every file would have a unique file name so there would no duplicates at all in your entire library of 100 000 images The Active folder function folder naming is limited Yet again it only allows three numbers to be inserted into the folder name and then a D300S is stuck at the end of the folder name What if I wanted an unlimited amount of customizable numbers AND letters AND the ability to insert metadata variables time date location serial no camera model iso number etc There is no live histogram The live horizon only meters the x axis not the y axis The BULB mode is limited It lets the photographer take an exposure while their finger is pressed on the shutter but if they wanted to push the shutter once to activate the exposure and then once again to stop the exposure they wouldn t be able to do that without buying a cable release or remote EV Exp and ISO is adjustable only in 1 3 or 1 2 increments Accurate exposure times are limited For example you cannot set it to 23 seconds It s either 20 or 25 It only can write files to be in horizontal orientation It can write in the EXIF data that it needs rotating but if you wanted to write the actual file dimensions in vertical orientation its is impossible It s incapable of auto focus bracketing The AF Assist lamp doesn t always turn on when it s dark and furthermore there is no option to turn on the AF Assist lamp at your desire It is a waste considering how bright and useful the lamp is It would be convenient for the user to have the ability to assign a button that turns on the AF Lamp so you can see in the dark The Interval Time Shooting mode is limited There is no way to tell how large the file size is for any of the files on the card There is no option to view the pictures in whatever orientation your camera is in It s either ROTATE TALL or not You cannot install different sized crystals inside of the camera body that are in front of the sensor to bend light in certain artistic ways this one is more of a joke than not although having the ability to easily swap the Internal Cut Filters would be awesome and silly cameras like the Nikon
