Verb Ballet Multiple Exposures

The ballet offers opportunities to try some of the lesser used features on some digital cameras.  I always take a number of multiple exposure when shooting the ballet.  This first shot is series of 4 individual images of a single dancer as she moves.  They are all recorded on a single image.

This second image is a multiple of 3 images of a group of dancers performing.  As you can clearly see, this multiple exposure technique can produce some striking and unusual photos!  This effect can also be simulated post production on the computer but it’s much easier doing it in camera if your camera includes this feature.

Today’s cameras offer many more features than most people will ever master, but every once in a while I’ll consult my camera manual and learn how to use a new feature I’ve never used before.  Multiple exposures are one of my favorites and I’ve used it on a number of occasions and on different subjects.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
