  • intro
  • what’s multiple exposure
  • gear
  • camera settings
  • blending  modes
  • soft focus multiple exposure
  • a play with focal points

Post processing

  • In-camera multiple exposure reduces contrast and colours. So the images will need post processing.
  • Adjusting contrast and color is mostly all they need.
  • Most work will be done in-camera. 
  • I use Lightroom and PS
  • Any software to adjust color and contrast can be used

Prepare yourself to capture the unseen

Looking through a lens changes the world, the camera sees differently. Explore a world beyond your imagination and discover the real beauty of the flowers around us.
