How to Walk Across a Photo — Multiple Exposure Magic!

Since the invention of photography, photo DIY-ers have hacked their way around its limits.

Not enough light? Ohai, here’s a mega powerful flash. Too far away? Let’s just whip up a longer focal length for ya.

Photo too still? Jeremy Blanchard found his way around that.

During an engagement shoot, he made this single image of his friends traveling across a photo! And he didn’t even use a pricey strobe.

In fact, you can make one of these at home with a photo editing program.

Jeremy wrote up a how-to. Here’s an abbreviation:

1) Take multiple shots of your friends walking across the frame.
2) Layer the photos into a single image in Photoshop.
3) Erase the surroundings leaving only the subjects. (Except on the main background.)
4) Lower the opacity on the ones that you want to appear lighter.

If you’re looking for more engagement photo ideas, you can always throw in a zombie.

Make Your Subjects Move with Multiple Exposures
