    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.

  11. 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. Once you start these double exposures you get "hooked". The results are fascinating.
