Most digital cameras do not have multiple exposure capabilities. With the use of Adobe Photoshop, you can create your own multiple exposure photographs. This technique is for a double exposure.

How To Create A Double Exposure Photograph

1. Open the file. Choose File --> Open --> Enter the image name to be worked on.

2. Choose Layer --> Duplicate Copy or hold the Ctrl Key down and hit the J key for a duplicate copy of the image. This layer is the layer you are going to work on.

3. Select the duplicate layer.

4. Choose Filter --> Blur --> Gaussian Blur and adjust the radius to a number that blurs the image but still leaves it recognizable. Click OK.

Gorgeous Sunset At Boat Meadow Beach On Cape Cod.

This was such a gorgeous sunset at Boat Meadow the other evening. I love the vibrant yellow and orange colors with the birds in the sky and the fishing boat out in the water. The little cloud in the sky on the right almost looks like a fish swimming by. Such a pretty evening.
