double exposure

Postby SRT202 » Thu Feb 16, 2006 5:54 pm

I recently purchased a minolta srt202 which has an in-camera double exposure feature, instead of doing a moon type picture I would like to try
using a black marble POW monument as one exposure and a military cemetery as the other. as i have not tried this before i thought i would see if anyone had some pointers, i.e. film iso, apeture, shutter speed.

There's a building right behind the POW monument that I wouldn't want in the picture and there's also a glare from the front, as the monument is made out of polished marble. Might I also add the monument is in front of the Government Center.

Any information as to how a picture like that could be accomplished would be much appreciated.

This link may help, but also do a search for double/multiple exposure techniques in photography.

Thanks for the link Keith, I Googled double exposure and found only a couple of short posts on various sites.
Yesterday I went and shot the cemetary but ran out of time to shoot the monument and today we had rain,the forecast doesnt look good for most of this week :cry:
