I was goofing off Saturday and decided to check our local kids park for baseball games... wanted to play with my 5D's in camera multiple exposure ability. This is one of the in camera versions...

These are just rapid fire sequences that I aligned in PS, then layered and masked off parts I wanted to show more than others...

A lot more work and I like them better... but the in camera thing isn't bad. I needed to be on a tripod though for best results. I was just using the fence that I was shooting through for support and trying to be still.

Very cool. Batter shot would be better from other side to see his face as well as (potentially) ball coming through zone or making bat contact.

Great shots and editing.
On number 1, I think I would like it better if the last of the three was less transparent - maybe even solid.
Number 3 - might want to clone out the fouled-off ball. Or move it into fair territory. :)

Thanks for the comments...jwhite65: #1 was done in camera, him appearing more faint was due to his head not being over the black material as it was on the first two captures

How the hell did you do that? I have the 5DIII and every time I tried it the results were so lousy it was ridiculous. And I've watched the Canon video on how to do it too.

Those shots of the pitcher are great.

MDJAK: Only the first one was done in camera! Rest were in PS from stills. I think what's behind them plays a huge factor in how they turn out. I choose "average" too for the mode rather than light, dark or whatever the 4th one is. ;) They turn out awful with feet missing, etc. I had done some before with people behind them and those don't turn out too well either but this fairly solid background worked out better.

Here's another that might demostrate better....

Notice how when his head is low, it doesn't hold up as well as it does over the darker part of the background, and the light yellow part shows through his head. Ideally, you'd have a green outfield wall behind them, that would turn out nice. I was also hand holding against a fence so the foreground moved a little... and thats why the mound isn't sharp.

They are all very good, On the one you did in PS did you use any actions or plugin software? What was the average editing time? Does the in camera version also save individual frames?

Cool concept. I think the second one works the best

No problem MDJAK.

JeffCanon: No Actions or plugins, just takes a little time, maybe 30 minutes. The in camera version does not save the individual frames, at least the way I was doing it. There may be a way to though.

Love it. Thanks for sharing. This will give me something to keep myself occupied at otherwise boring games.
