I’ve just released a video tutorial that will teach you the creative art of “cloud-stacking.” Cloud-stacks are composite still images created from time-lapse (interval timer) captures. By using Photoshop to blend your images, you aren’t limited to the 2-10 shot maximum limit of an in-camera multiple exposure. My new video workshop includes a printable PDF companion notes set, too. For a complete guide to cloud-stacking and other creative long exposure techniques, be sure to check out Stretching Time: Mastering the Art of Long Exposure Photography.
