My sister gives me a subscription to Nat Geo every year for Christmas and I got interested in multiple exposures after viewing the photos of Nicolas Ruel in the "Cities" edition in April.
Nicolas Ruel visited something like 80 to 100 major cities across the globe to take double exposures and actually has ongoing exhibitions to show his work.
He states that he uses an 8-second exposure where he mounts his camera on his tripod and takes a 4-second shot in one direction and then turns the camera (shutter still open)
in another direction for 4-seconds to create his double image.
I tried this, even with my lens stopped down to f22 (during the day) and came out with no image.
So I got into the camera settings and discovered a Multiple Exposure setting and decided to try a few shots (Auto Gain-On).
Let me know what you think of my first efforts?
I took this shot of the FMC building at the top of the frame and then shot the other way with the city skyline at the bottom of the frame to create this effect of the
FMC building being the tallest building in the city.
This is an interesting shot of the AT&T Building superimposed over the new Robert Center. It looks like a reflection but is not.
Here is a shot taken with an Interstate sign zoomed in and a few condo buildings taken in another direction.
This one might be my favorite so far. I took one shot down the tracks and one down the bike/pedestrian ramp. It kind of turned into a parallex view and the guy appearing to be on top of the train.
This is an apartment building called Locust Point. This shot is basically a shot of the building taken first and then some flowers nearby. But I like how the colors work.
These were all shot in .jpeg format and in Auto setting with Auto Gain toggled On.
