Using Your DSLR for Multiple Exposure Photography
While scooting through Paris, prolific photographer and Fstoppers submitter, Benjamin Von Wong set to the task of photographing master pyrotechnician Andrey Das. Ben has already done a couple shoots with fire (1-2) so to keep growing as an artist and a professional his team decided to challenge themselves. Check out the resulting video and the photos in the full post where Ben talks about how he used multiple exposures in his DSLR to turn out a wickedly hot series, all in-camera. Which is to say no Photoshop. You can also hit Ben up on his blog where he tells us the whole story, day by day.
Now before our Canon lovers jump down Ben’s throat for saying Canon doesn’t do multiple exposures, keep in mind not everyone is up on the 5D Mark III specs yet.
An excerpt from Ben’s Blog:
DAS and I had decided that we wanted to take AMAZING shots straight out of camera, without photoshop. It is too easy these days to snigger at a photo and say: “well its just photoshop” so we really wanted to push the boundaries on what was possible to create in camera… something that was REAL. What we wanted to create is simple to do on photoshop… but in camera would be a whole different ballpark. So that was the constraint and challenge we set ourselves, even though we knew it could mean that the shots would be “less perfect” … or even miss out completely.
