    I searched for a thread and didn't find anything. So I thought I would start one.

    I find it fun, on occasion, to play with creating double exposures with my E-M10. It can be quite a creative endeavor.

    Here are a few to start off with.

    I've been trying out double exposure nature portraits as inspired by the works of Finnish photographer Cristopher Relander. Here are a few which have been shared somewhere on this forum:

    I did this for a friend's incoming 40th bday but not sure if she's going to use it.

    I did a blogpost a while back on this http://pinoyborian-photography.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/multiple-exposure-nature-portraits.html hope that will help.

    I just went back to this technique again a few months back and I discovered the Overlay option (found in same Menu>Camera 2>Multiple Exposures option). Once turned 'on' you can use your base photo again and again in getting the second shot to make a double exposure photo.

    I've had a fiddle with the multiple exposure mode on my GM1 but nothing worth posting to show for it yet...

    I was pleasantly surprised the other day whilst checking the manual for my EPM1 to find that it has a double exposure mode too, so I've had a play with it as well but need to investigate it more...

    this technique is intrigueing. Once I started using the camera┬┤s double exposure mode photos started to become more complex, as the second exposure always has to be very deliberate.
    In the first picture the drummer is listening to a solo played on a kemenche (long time exposure)
    In the second the classical performers play an adagio so I used the second exposure out of focus to soften the photo
    In the third picture a chirpy childrens song is performed - in this case I used the colours (out of focus and overexposed) of the bass

    Re-note is right: fader's night-rider is superb stuff. You have to take your time to really dig into it.
    But re-note's intensive musical dialogue between the drummer and the kemenche player is a class of it's own, too. Brilliant in its multiple contrasts, the lighting, just everything.

    Photos like the ones re-note shares led me to experimenting myself. My first attempts are still "basic" compared to most of what you find in this thread. But once you start these double exposures you get "hooked". The results are fascinating. For some of my "starters" see A double exposure evening.
