Multiple exposures have a huge wow factor! They are lots of fun and super creative with digital photography. Digital gives you total control of the process and real insight into making beautiful photographs. You don't need to be a master photographer to have fantastic results.

In this tutorial we will teach you how to shoot and how to process your multiple exposures in Photoshop. It is easy to learn these techniques and soon you will find yourself immersed in the creative possibilities.

You can use any digital camera (*almost, please read the requirements below) and any version of Photoshop CS or Elements. This class is suitable for advanced beginners and up. If you can take a photo and open it in Photoshop we can teach you how to make stunning multiple exposures.

In this tutorial we are going to dig in to how multiple exposures are created. Once we have a basic grasp of how images behave when they are combined we will get into artistic ways of making multiple exposures. In lesson four we will work on additional techniques for enhancing multiple exposures to bring out the best in them.

There are four lessons and accompanying instructional videos. The lesson materials include written material, videos and exercise files. You will start by learning the basics with the exercise files then shoot your own photos, move on to more advanced techniques in photography and Photoshop. This tutorial is about 50/50 photography and Photoshop. You will learn skills that are universally useful for more than multiple exposures.
