Watercolors at 30th Street Station, Philadelphia

Watercolor at 30th Street

Trying to perfect my skills at Michael Orton’s famous style. Pretty cool effects, but taking a lot of work to get it right.

I haven’t played at all with doing this in Photoshop, as I like the unpredictable, somewhat uncontrolled results of the multiple exposures. These shots were all taken on multiple exposure mode with auto-gain, 3 shots each. The effect is rendered by taking one focused shot, then stacking two progressively less focused shots on top of it. The second and third shots require lens zoom to correct for the widening of the lens as it is defocused from the original subject.

Nikon D800, AF-S Nikkor D800
@ 24mm, f/7.1, 1/250s, ISO 100
