Multiple exposures are a traditional effect that first started in analog photography, where multiple scenes were exposed onto a single film frame to create a single final image. The majority of today’s digital cameras let you achieve this effect inside the camera. But you can get the most control over your results by simulating this technique in Zoner Photo Studio. We’ll be using a wintertime portrait to illustrate the steps.
Have a scene where too many things are distracting from your subject? If those distractions are moving objects, you can easily remove them on a PC using multi-exposures. Just take multiple shots from a single location, with the moving objects located differently in each shot. And then join them all into one picture. Let’s take a look at how.
Photographers generally use multi-exposures to create HDR photos; these serve to darken overly bright skies or brighten dark landscapes. But multi-exposures can be used for much more than just that. Like cloning any objects you want. You just have to place them into your scene and take your series of source photos. And then join it all into one picture. Let’s take a look at how.
Getting a picture of a landmark without people around it can seem like a superhuman task. Fortunately where photographers fail, work in a graphics editor can succeed. And this work is quicker than you might expect: it only takes a couple of minutes.
The term multiple exposure or “multi-exposure” is fairly broad. It means joining multiple photos into one, no matter why or how. The ability to join multiple exposures into a single picture can be put to many uses. I’ll show you one of those uses in today’s article.
