Member Presentation — George Liberman
(Monday, November 14, 2016)
Some cameras, such as the Nikon, allow you to take multiple exposures of the same subject matter and create a kind of mosaic effect as you move the camera or zoom the lens during the exposure. Other cameras allow for a double exposure—one image superimposed on a second image. This talk will be about how to “make an image” using Photoshop layers and stacking in order to combine multiple exposures into a creative composite.
As you can imagine, the first step is to have an idea of what your final image will look like. You can either choose multiple images to combine from your collection as illustrated by the photo of the skiers on the table cloth or you can carefully set up a series of shots moving your subjects about for different exposures against the same background. In either case, the final image is achieved in the “digital darkroom.”
