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.
