The single and the multiple exposure approach

You can choose to keep it simple and create the whole image in-camera or you can create more complex images using layers and masks in Photoshop.

You choose what to reveal by creating a unique light composition. You choose what to show and you create the mood you want. 

Gear: a camera, a tripod and a flashlight

The single exposure approach

This image come straight out of the camera, without any post processing. That’s the strength of the single exposure approach. This technique is perfect for simple compositions and simple light compositions. Through a process of trial and error you build up the image step by step. 

The multiple exposure approach

The multiple approach is more suited when creating more complex light compositions. Such as in this image where I included a wonderful cloudscape.
