Flower Impressions - Multiple Exposure

There are lots of ways to create impressionistic flower photos. If your camera is capable of multiple exposures, you can take a series of shots of the same blossom and move the camera slightly between clicks. This produces a rhythmic repetition of the flower's shape "marching" across the frame.

In this image I made four exposures, moving the camera slightly left and down, following the curve of the stem of orchids. The camera automatically adjusted the exposures so the extra light did not overexpose the result.
