Seeing Double

There are functions of your camera that sometimes get forgotten in the push to get the perfect image in your camera.  I was doing some hand held macro work outside in the back yard. There was a slight breeze so I switched the Fujifilm X-T2 to continuous low to spray a few images in the hopes of getting the one where the wind wasn’t shaking the leaves I was shooting.

I took a couple of shots then switched back to single shot, or so I thought.  On the X-T2 the multi exposure function is right next to single shot and I accidentally moved the drive lever to multi-exposure.  Not being a proponent of multiple exposures (i have enough trouble getting one image right) I switched back to single shot when I saw the prompts for next image.

Having never explored the in camera multiple exposure feature I thought I’d give it a try.  I had nothing to lose as the Sun was a bit to high and harsh and was giving too much dynamic range. I shot of an image and used that image to align a second image just slightly off from the first.  I really had no expectations but was pleasantly surprised by the result.

The two images together combined to keep the highlights and shadows within a range.  The light of the two images together returned the perfectly lit image I was looking for but not finding in my single shot images.  I really like the outcome.

Not that I will now go on a multi-exposure tangent but it is nice to remember there are other things to explore when you start working with your cameras features.
