Dan Mountford , 20 years of age, is an amazingly talented photographer and graphic designer from UK . He is renowned for his multiple exposure portraits. In this challenge we drill down the various procedure possible. And how explain how these were produced. And hope you would love to experiment it out, and we would love to have the outputs you got to learn more from each other. Post the pictures you capture on our Facebook wall or email to us at email@example.com. We would soon publish a gallery collection of all those submissions and Best picture would get a special Certificate.
Please note that most of these images are produced in camera, without any post processing.
Here is some of the inspirational work by DAN MOUNTFORD:
Dan Mountford’s portfolio is amazingly rich with these amazingly talented portraits.
Here is how you can:
With Built in Multiple Exposure Feature
Most Pentax DSLRs (K-5, K-7, K20D, K10D, K-r, K-x), the Pentax Q, all third generation Olympus ILCs (E-P3, E-PL3, E-PM1) plus the OM-D E-5, most mid-to-high end Nikon DSLRs (D300S, D700, D3X, D3S), the Canon 1D X, a number of Fuji ultra-zooms (like the S9000) and the Olympus ZX-1 which is the smallest camera to have this multiple xposure feature.
Here is how to go about it:
Take first shot of your portrait with background blow out and subject as Silhouette.
Then take your second shot as texture over these images. The benefit of using this multiple exposure is that you can perfectly align the subject with the texture or imagery you are trying to merge. However there are more ways to produce this imagery in camera even if you don’t have a multiple exposure feature.
What if there is no built in Multiple Exposure Feature in your camera?
Try using Image Overlay feature built in your camera to merge two different exposures
Also you can use AE Bracketing option in your camera. Thats not exactly the Multiple Exposure but can give you multiple different shots feature with automatically changing the exposure using AE bracketing.
What If you are using entry level DSLR or Point and Shoot Camera?
Yes even If you are a point and shoot camera owner you still can give this a try by capturing two different pictures one as silhouette and other one as texture and then blend them using Photoshop blending options and overlay layers features. Its alot easy to do this in software, however you dont have much ability to properly align or plan a perfect overlay.
Shooting Multiple Exposure Portraits with Smart phone:
What if you dont have any DSLR, Entry Level Point and Shoot or any other camera?
I bet you still got one in your pockets, Lets experiment it out also.
If you are Android or iOS powered smart phone owner. You can shoot multiple exposure portraits with an Application Called Camera 360.
So you ready for Multiple Exposure Challenge?
Lets give this Multiple Exposure a try. I hope you would love testing this feature out.
