Day 152 – Must. Play. Faster!   4 comments

Speed sliding - multiple exposureAnother in the multiple exposure series. This one is a composite from 12 images from the same park as yesterday’s image. To capture these shots, I just setup the camera on a tripod and let her play with virtually no direction. In fact, I asked her to make sure she ran around to the right, but obviously she forgot and just ran where she wanted. She had the right idea. I used a slow shutter speed (1/40s) to catch the action. I then created this image by stacking the 12 layers and using layer masks to paint in the bits I wanted from each layer.

I reckon this is a great way to have a different kind of portrait that really captures the spirit of the subject.

  1. What a joy! 🙂 It’s definitely a different kind of portrait!

  2. I plan on heading out between 1st and 2nd period to attempt an image composite. I suppose it depends on how well the Canucks do! 😀

    Really like this one Mike, great job.

  4. Love this one Mike, especially the way the slow shutter speed portrays the action. I’ve been meaning to do this type of thing for a long time now. I think i’m inspired now to actually do it.
