This is digital photography. One advantage of digital photography over film photography is that you can do multiple exposures quite easily in post processing. You don't have to worry about the proper exposure for each of the individual shots, and you don't have to worry about the position of the subject(s) during each individual exposure. You just do it all in the computer, just like it was done in the days of film: In the darkroom.

Most of the posters here seem to agree with TCav.

Even when film was the predominent photographic medium, multiple exposures were done in post processing. It's just easier with digital.

Not always. It was just easier in the darkroom. Most manual 35mm film cameras were capable of multiple exposures. Though the feature was not used often, it was used, and with care, very interesting effects could be created in-camera.

Pentax has kept this tradition in its top-line digital slrs. The *istD, K10D and K20D can do this. Don't recall whether any of the other models can. The K20D also has an exposure mode which is not just additive, but maintains proper exposure across the series of shots.

Yes. You're absolutely correct. What I meant to say was "multiple exposures were most often done in post processing."

Thank you for correcting me.
