How to Make IN-CAMERA Multiple Exposure Photos (PHOTOS)

If you want to step out of your comfort zone and try something different, you’ve come to the right place. The tutorial below demonstrates a simple creative technique for expressing yourself that’s a lot of fun.

Kim Grant is a pro based in Scotland whose editing and shooting tips we feature often. One of the things we love about her work is Grant’s penchant for creating unique effects with intentional camera movement (ICR), super-vivid colors, astrophotography, and more.

She carries on this tradition in today’s lesson by demonstrating how to make striking multiple exposure photos. There are methods for mimicking this “beautiful creative form of photography” during the editing process, but this lesson is all about getting it done in the camera.

In this behind-the-scenes episode you’ll watch Grant work her magic on a beautiful day at the coast. The sun is shining, there’s an awesome sky, and plenty of pretty colors throughout the scene.

The technique Grant describes assumes you have a relatively modern camera with built-in multiple exposure capability. If you use an older or more basic model fear not, because Grant reveals a second method you can employ for favorable results.

Grant walks you through the primary approach from beginning to end, starting with configuring the camera for the task at hand. She’s shooting with a Nikon Z7 II to illustrate the required camera settings, so if you own another brand just dig around in the menu to set it up.

Once your camera is ready it’s time to have some fun, and Grant demonstrates everything you need to know for creating beautiful multiple-exposure images. She even offers some inspiring words to encourage you to give this technique a try.

There’s much more to learn on Grant’s popular YouTube channel, so be sure to take a look.
