I have never tried that Mark but it does make an interesting effect. I like the use of it best on your second and third shots.

Hey out of curiosity has anyone tried using this technique using just 1 pic? Like on photoshop.
I read another tutorial saying you need to
step one take overexposed pic in focus
take pic out of focus
take pic in focus..

is this right?

Thats how i did these shots,using just a single image. I`ll try and explain....

In photoshop (I use CS2)....

Change image mode to "screen" (image>mode>screen)which brightens it.
Copy the whole image into another window(image>duplicate).
On the second (duplicated) image add gaussian blur (filter>blur>gaussian blur) with a setting of between 15 and 40%.
Select the "move" tool on the tool window, then drag the second blurred image on top of the first image and line it up.This will make the blurred image into a second layer.
On the layer palette, change the blend mode to multiply.

Thats about it, doesnt take very long to do and gives a nice saturated result.The method you mention sounds like that used with slide film, the various shots being sandwiched into a single slide mount to give the same effect.

Hope that helps,

awesome thanks you helped out more than the other things I read on it haha. I figured it was possible with one pic. Taking an out of focus pic and all seems kinda un needed

Yes, you can do wonders with just a single image in photoshop. You could do it that way, taking several various pics, but its not really necessary.

Glad the info helped.

I used brightness for the lightening up because my photoshop.. CS3 doesn't have that screen option

You change the image mode to screen by Image>apply image then change the blending mode to screen.
Apologies, I typed my previous reply to you without having PS open to check, and typed the wrong commands.
