Many digital cameras now offer a "burst" effect, where several photos are taken quickly in sequence. This is used most often for sports, but any type of movement can be captured.
Your goal is to take an action sequence burst of 5 frames, and combine them into a single photo. You can also create a "burst" effect by pushing your camera shutter button repeatedly, if your shutter speed and lag time are quick enough. Stack your images on top of each other.
One way of how to stack photos using Photoshop:
- open all 5 photos in Photoshop
- choose your 1st image as a base to drag and drop all the other photos on as a layer (in order in which you made them). Select the move tool for this and 1 by 1 open your other photos and drag and drop them on the first photo, make sure they align.
- Once you have all 5 photos as different layers you can set the top 4 layers to an opacity on 50% (the % is up to you).
- You might want to crop the image so not overlapping areas are gone.
Save your image and you are done.
