I received a request on Flickr a couple days ago:
you mentioned taking 3 exposures in one of your shots (a stream in big basin) and combining them together in photoshop. how do you do that?
I can only assume he meant this one:
Here’s how I did it. Well before I tell you how, I think I should mention how I’m going to tell you how. I am going to use the excellent program Comic Life to do it. You can see from Flickr that this is a pretty amazing program that people have used in interesting ways.
If you don’t have a Mac, then you can try this shameless copy of the program for Windows. It’s not as good since it doesn’t take advantage of the cool features built into the latest Mac OS X. (But then again, neither did I.)
The idea as a tutorial, I shamelessly stole from Dave McNally.
Click on the images and then “All Sizes” to read the tutorial.
