Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who are either professional photographers or serious amateurs, some with decades of experience, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Title says it all. I tried laying one image on top of the other and changing the opacity, tried painting thru, nothing I do creates this image,
So last I guess I need help.

One way is to use a single image with layer mask.

1. start with normal image of trees
2. add layer/s of fog and glow or grunge, or tint, etc.

Mask your shape through the layers; I did free hand with just a layer mask brush, hence these scary ghosts - lol. I assume there are drawing tools for much more control.

I believe that it can also be done as a double exposure. I did something like this a few years ago. If I remember correctly, to mimick that shot you would shoot the couple outdoors pointing the camera up from a low vantage point into a very bright sky and set the exposure to create a silhouette of the couple. Now for your second shot, properly expose a shot into some trees. The trees will now show up in any area that is under exposed - as in the silhouette of the couple.

Simply by using two captures

1 - Tree (background layer)
2 - Couple image (top layer)
2a - create a selection on the couple
2b - erase the selection (or create a black mask ~ hide)
2c - use of layer opacity mode and/or layer blend mode

There is no major difficulties here.

Note that since there is no artifact from the second exposure (top layer ~ 2 couple) this is not an 'in camera' double exposure.

That's gotten to be a very popular double exposure process lately. Google double exposure, and you'll see lots of articles about how to do it.

All you do is to hold the little button in while you wind the film and it will stay on that frame :)

Well! its true for FILM camera and the film it may move and may not line up 100%, again not all camera can be done that way either; With DSLR can not and will not work your way!
