Fake?



Got a call from Rob the other night telling me I need to go to the roof and look at the moon, cause after all a moon looks a helluva lot better over brooklyn. Big and full, high in the sky, I immediately thought double exposure. How easy is it? Easier than you might think. Sorry canon users, in camera double exposure is just not an option for you. Basically you just just scroll through the menu (I have it in my "my menu" so I can find it at any split second) and select how many images you want to over lay (up to 10) and start shooting. Make one exposure of the moon, then turn 180 degrees and take exposure of Manhattan, in about a second you have the combine image. Only thing is, is that after you finish one it turns off and you have to turn that feature on again or else your just shooting normal frames...yeah, you don't want to look at my contact sheets. I guess this is good though, or I'd forget it is on and be shooting double exposures all day. Some times you thunder thumb the buttons and it doesn't work, or you now have 10 images laying over each other, or you start to see mysterious figures appear in certain frames and you have to start over...it's a process, yeah, thats it....

I digress...

Even funnier yet I was reading a Q&A with Jim Richardson today during lunch and I came across this little number...


...So there you have it. Is is fake? All one frame, one RAW file, In camera capture, but an impossible image at that. I'll let you make that decision.

Yet ANOTHER reason I need to get a Nikon. If only I weren't so broke.
