Olympic Multiple Exposure Photographs To Inspire You [10 Pics]

Olympic-Photographs-London-2012-Gymnastics

As if watching the Olympics wasn’t inspiring enough, these multiple exposure pictures make the whole experience even better. We all know that this is the first Olympics where social media is playing a huge role, but there are other things about this year’s Olympics that are different from all the previous ones when it comes to technology. For example, Reuters is using almost a dozen robots to take pictures in a revolutionary way. They are using a new camera and a new system.

Something similar to this has been done before, but this year it’s a whole new ball game. The way it all works is fascinating. There are a couple photographers that control the robots and all the camera settings from a computer, and long story short, the photos taken this way are mind-blowing. You can read more about this photography system on Wired. Aside from the obvious difference in quality, another advantage of taking pictures this way is that the robots can be positioned in places that human beings cannot go or fit at the Olympics. For example, one of the robots can be placed high up in the stadium, which is a new perspective in Olympic photography.

The most incredible part of it all to me is that this new Canon DX camera can take up to 14 pictures per second. This provides the most amazing multiple exposure shots I’ve ever seen. You can read about multiple exposure photography on the Canon website. In the first picture below, you’ll see U.S. gymnast Alexandra Raisman on the balance beam. In the second picture, which is my favorite, you’ll see China’s Linlin Deng competing on the beam during the women’s individual qualifying event. You can read more about all this on Reuters. I always wonder what advancements like this have on traditional photographers, and how they react to these kinds of technology enhanced pictures. As that article on Reuters says, the cameras at the Olympics are getting better, and the athletes are getting better. That combination makes for the most extraordinary photographs we’ve ever seen.
