Hi guys :) wanted to know whether this is achievable on film. Say like developing do we have to tell the guys how we want it or is there a actual term for it i know photoshop definitely allows this but for film? Thanks in advance.

mulitple exposure.. your cam needs to have this feature, ie not advance the film for the predetermined no. of exposures you've set..

a holga (inexpensive plastic toy camera) will enable you to achieve multiple exposure.
not exactly cheap, but it brings out the fun in photography you never knew existed in digital

This is actually a technique called Double Exposure which basically allows you to take 2 shots / exposures on a single film. It is only available in some SLR or DSLR cameras (For sure not Canon DSLRs).

Not sure if its possible to combine 2 negatives to make one of such shot but as far as I know, it can only be done within the camera itself.

well, I think it's quite possible to combine 2 negs into 1 pic, ie in darkroom expose both negs onto the same piece of photographic paper..

i suppose so.

to be frank, i think for digital cameras they probably just do the overlaying in-cam, that's about it.

There is more than just take a few images and not wind the film. You need to take into consideration that in the final image the background of image 1 may not look good if superimposed on image 2 or 3..........so you need to think carefully how you compose.

usually if you want to combine 2 images into one, you need to half the exposure for each image

If you wan to combine three images, divide exposure by three (e.g. 1/60 will be 1/250 for each image)

This can also be done in the darkroom but is very difficult! Do a search on the master of this darkroom technique of using more than one negative: Jerry Uelsmann

Film cameras have no 'special button' to do multiple exposure, what people do is to unlock the filmsprocket and then wind (press the little 'R' button underneath most of film cameras and wind the shutter, but not the film)...........

There are many SLR cameras that can set multiple exposure. Up to 9, generally.
