The first two images, Plate 1 and Plate 2,below were doubly exposed. Plate 3 was taken in one exposure.

Plate 1: Same focusing and aperture were used in both exposure except that the amount of flash light for each exposure was different. In the first exposure, the light intensity was pushed up while in the second, down. The purpose was to create a dynamic range difference and so,when the shots were combined, both the details in the shadows and the highlight area were better unveiled.

Plate 2: The flash light intensity was reduced in the first place in order to attain proper exposure arising double exposures. The focusing and aperture for the first and second exposures were changed. In the first one, the aperture was a small one and the object shot was well focused; this gave the object shot its details and outline. In the second shot, the aperture was fully open and the object was defocused to impart software to the object being shot.

Plate 3: Completed in one exposure.The details in the shadow and highlight areas are much less than thosein Plate 1.

Pleasant viewing.

Pete

Great experiment, never thought about creating merged images this way.
Now my 5c
Nr1 does what was expected and looks great, love the idea so I'm going to try it to.
Nr2 is a kind of orton effect you are trying out only I've got the feeling that the defocussing was a bit hard.
Nr3 just a great shot, only I can't really comment on the fact that the details are better or not because you changed the angle, and I'm not knowledgeable in this stuff.

All in all great experiment.

You are right that the background is a bit hard for #2.
