In Camera Double Exposure Tutorial
One image? Two Images? Three images? The possibilities are endless.
On the back of your Nikon, press the Menu button in the upper left corner. Using the multi selector button, press the down arrow to scroll through the various menus until you land on the Shooting Menu. Press the right arrow and then drill down until you see Multiple Exposure. Note: the Multiple Exposure option will be grayed out if your camera dial is set to Live View (LV). To make Multiple Exposure active, change that setting to from LV to Single (S), Continuous Low (CL) or Continuous High (CH) using the Advance Mode Dial.
By default Multiple Exposure is set to OFF. Press the right arrow to enter the Multiple Exposure options. Press the down arrow to highlight Number of Shots. To change the number of shots, press either the up or down button until the number you want is selected (you can choose between two and 10 shots). Then press the OK button. The next setting is Auto Gain. Generally it’s fine to leave it at the default selection of ON. (Auto Gain is the automatic exposure compensation for Multiple Exposure. The camera will adjust the exposure of each frame automatically to try and avoid overexposure.) Scroll up to Done and press the OK button. Press OK again until you exit the menus.
Up to 30 seconds is allowed between exposures, so start firing away. You will see an icon indicating that Multiple Exposure is currently on: two little rectangles stacked on top of each other. Press the shutter button the desired amount of exposures (this is what you set previously as Number of Shots). The LCD screen will flash, the icons will disappear, and the CF light will blink a few times as the camera processes all the exposures into one composite photo.
Unfortunately, with Live View disabled you won’t be able to see what you’ve got until the final product; this is where practice and trial and error come into play. But remember: Nikon DSLRs automatically turns off Multiple Exposure mode after each use, so don’t forget to go back in and turn it on again.
Almost any subject will work well for this technique – portraits, flowers, landscapes, or architecture. Try taking one shot perfectly in focus and then throw the second shot deliberately out of focus so that the image is slightly blurred. This can produce a glow or an ethereal feeling to the final composite exposure.
Now you’ve created a unique piece of art that no one else can duplicate. The only limit is the limit of your own imagination!

My Cameras Throughout The Ages
The Nikon F3 was Nikon's third professional single-lens reflex camera body, introduced in 1980, it had manual and semi-automatic exposure control whereby the camera would select the correct shutter speed (aperture priority automation). The Nikon F3 series cameras had the most model variations of any Nikon F camera. It was also the first of numerous Nikon F-series cameras to be styled by Italian designer Georgette Giugiaro and to include a red stripe on the handgrip – a feature that would later become (with variants of stripes and various other shapes) a signature feature of many Nikon cameras .
The F3 was superseded by the F4 in 1988 and the F5 in 1996. Despite being superseded by the newer cameras, it remained in production through to 2001, with over 751,000 F3s produced through September 1992. It continues to be the longest running professional grade Nikon SLR .
My first Nikon was a Nikon F Photomic FTN circa. 1968 . I've always loved and used a Nikon I've owned and used Nikon film cameras including the Nikon F2, F3, F4 and F5 . Nikon Professional Digital Cameras include the Nikon D1, D2x, D100, D200, D3, D3s, D4 and D750.
Other cameras used in my youth: A Brownie Bullet 127, Pentax Spotmatic, a Minolta SRT-101 . and a Hasselblad 500CM.

Making My Photographic Headshots Shine
When shooting a setup, I pre-visualize in my mind what I want the images to look like. That includes type of lighting, light modifiers, camera and glass, (lens) . Then, that tells me which gear I need for the shoot .
9.7 times out of 10 the setup in my mind is what we create to get the needed imagery.
Below are samples of "Environmental & Standard Neutral Background (White & Gray).
Strobe and LED lighting was used.
I can create and work in any environment. Please comment and ask questions and let me shoot or re-do your headshots.
On a Day in April, over 300 people participated in the Festival of Flavors event. Featuring Dina Hadida, Gila Levi, Sarah Cohen, and Lior Balavie from Beit Shean (Cleveland’s partnership community in Israel), they shared the rich Sephardic culture of Beit Shean through their music, culinary expertise and Jewish heritage. Guests tasted samplings of Sephardic desserts and participated in children’s activities and dancing. As part of the “Reel Israel” film festival, the event also included a screening of The Sachne, My Home – a film which documents one of the most popular natural sites in the Beit Shean Region where Israeli families, Arab families, tourists, soldiers and immigrants visit year round to enjoy its beauty and to celebrate their lives.

. Pictured, the Body Armor, Gas masks and Helmets I and other members of the Press may have to buy in order to work the RNC Convention Safely .
. Cleveland is preparing to host the Republican National Convention during one of the most tumultuous presidential elections in decades, amid concerns from its police union that the city is not moving fast enough to secure riot gear, train personnel, and ensure there will be enough officers on the street" .
. Tensions are escalating as Donald Trump, the leading GOP candidate, warns of “riots” if he is denied the nomination at the July convention. Some city officials and law enforcement officers are accusing Trump of fueling discontent and inciting violence with his rhetoric . The city is scrambling to build and equip a security force that police specialists said could number 4,000 to 5,000 officers .
. The City has yet to order the necessary riot-control gear, having only recently put the security equipment out to bid . On the list of orders: 2,000 sets of riot-control “turtle suits’’ that include upper body and shoulder protection, shin guards, elbow and forearm protection, tactical hard-knuckle gloves, and 26-inch collapsible batons . Cleveland’s police officers union says the city is moving too slowly, and that even if the riot gear arrives by June as planned, officers will not have sufficient time to train with the new equipment before the convention starts July 18 .
. “We’re under-prepared right now for this,” said Stephen Loomis, president of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association. “We are way behind the eight ball. The city has a responsibility to make us as safe as possible. Right now, they are not living up to that' . Cleveland also is ordering 16 police motorcycles, 300 patrol bicycles, 310 sets of bicycle riot control gear, and three horse trailers — as well as 500 interlocking steel barriers that are 6½ feet high and 2,000 shorter steel barriers . “We don’t even have a bicycle unit, and now all of a sudden we’re going to have 300 bikes and no training,” Loomis said .
. The security equipment is being paid for by a $50 million federal security grant to the city to host the convention. A significant portion of the money will cover personnel costs; the city is also obtaining an insurance rider to cover police liability and property damage downtown if there are civil disturbances, according to the Cleveland City Council .
. Meanwhile, it’s unclear if Cleveland will get enough help from out-of-state departments to create the huge security force that is needed. A spokesman for the Chicago police said the department — itself roiled because of a police involved shooting and a rash of homicides — is thinking about pulling out of the convention but has not “officially said no yet" .
Dan Williams, spokesman for the City of Cleveland, would not respond to security-related questions, including those about the police union’s concerns on equipment delays, size of police presence, and training. “We do not discuss training, tactics, staffing, or deployment,” Williams said, referring all security inquiries to the Secret Service . The city and its police force have been coordinating with the Secret Service on security preparations with plans to step up law enforcement presence to handle the large number of expected protesters .
Trump appeared on national television warning of bedlam in Cleveland if he amasses the most delegates and is still denied the nomination in a contested convention . “I think you’d have riots,” Trump said on CNN. “I’m representing a tremendous — many, many millions of people" .
. He said if his supporters feel disenfranchised, “I think you would have problems like you’ve never seen before. I think bad things would happen. . . . I wouldn’t lead it, but I think bad things would happen" .

. “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” .
