    Hey guys i'm pretty new at the whole photography thing i just got a nikon d50 . I've been messing around more and more with the manual mode. here are a few examples of what i think are some of my better pictures.

    Critique me if you want, any comments would be appreciated.


    Now for the question.. I've seen on here a thread or two with people keeping the camera in one single position and taking multiple pictures of objects moving around the room.. Then taking the whole set of pictures and blending it together as one. However i can't find either of those threads that i've seen so if someone could explain how to do it in PS that would be amazing. Thanks :hsd:

    Set your camera up on a tripod. If you're using lighting that is inconsistent, you might want to use a different source of lighting (i.e. a flash) so that all your exposures come out similarly exposed, etc.

    Switch over to Av or Tv mode and find settings that will work for you. Note this setting and switch to M mode and keep the settings consistent. The reason you want to do this is, like I said, so all your exposures come out similarly.

    The next step is the physical work. Take the pictures. This is up to you.

    After you're done, upload the pictures to your computer and open them all up in photoshop. Find a picture to use as your "base" picture. This is arbitrary, it doesn't matter which picture you decide as your base, so number them from 1-16 and get out your 16 sided dungeons and dragons die and roll a 4.

    Anyway, so copy one of the pictures and paste it over the base. Make note of where the object you wish to reveal was and with an slightly soft edged eraser, reveal the object. Repeat and rinse. :bowdown: In some situations you will have to switch to a hard edged eraser if your subjects overlap. This is something to keep in mind.
