Oh my. What's going on here then?

I'll just point out that each of the last two panels required two exposures, which I carefully overlaid in Photoshop and then partially transparentified.


2017-08-27 Rerun commentary: Transparencerated.

This sort of double exposure overlaying is much easier than ones where I cut out something and place it into another scene at a different size. Like has happened a few times...

For this one I just need to shoot the same scene twice without moving the camera, moving only the duplicated miniatures. Then the two shots can be placed in separate layers in Photoshop and a partially transparent mask placed over the top one, adjusted until it shows the figures of both exposures.
