    You know, a picture of a room with one person sitting at a table, on a couch, and standing, or something like that, all the same person.

    Yes, it's played out, and not that tricky. But I've never done it. And I have no idea what to call it to look it up.

    Is there any trick to it other than making sure the lighting and speeds stay constant, taking multiple pictures, and layering in Photoshop then lassoing them in? I figure that's how I'd do it but I don't know if there's more to it.

    I know plenty of you have done it.

    Sounds like you've got the right idea down. That's how I would do it.

    I mean I am sure I could figure it out and do it in a sloppy way, but I was just checking if there were any tricks :o

    Manual exposure, focus, white balance on a tripod. Open all the photos in camera raw or lightroom and batch process them so all the tweaks are the same. Export them all to photoshop and add a layer mask to all but the bottom most photo layer. With the mask selected on each layer, use the brush tool with black as foreground color and paint everywhere except where you are. (With mask applied, a black brush will subtract from the layer and a white brush will add back.) Paint around each person in the layer until they look like they're all in the same image. bingo

    You can do multiple exposure on digital... or at least on my old D80 I could. I have not looked into it with the D700 but I am sure it probably does.
