Behind The Lens

Location
The first of the two combined images, the tree, was taken silhouetted against the sky, which is the nice light grey color. The image of the woman was taken in my home in Maryland against a white background. I've been learning about multiple exposure for the past year or so, and I absolutely love the way the final image turned out.
Time
Given that the woman portrait was created in a studio, I just made sure that the time of day made my room bright. I love natural lighting more than any studio lighting out there, so I always make sure that the natural lighting is perfect.
Lighting
As I said previously, I always use natural lighting for my images. So I took both images to create the multiple exposure on days where the sunlight was just perfect.
Equipment
I didn't use anything fancy to take either of these images. I only have a Nikon D3300, but I always try my best to utilize my camera the best I can.
Inspiration
I follow an artist on Instagram that takes incredible multiple exposures, which is where I first got the inspiration for the branches in the silhouette. On a broader scale, I just love multiple exposure photography, and I'm always looking to challenge myself even further with the task of taking two perfect pictures that will blend together seamlessly.
Editing
I'm definitely a 21st century girl, as I was born in the late 90's. Therefore, as a high school student in this digital world, I have little knowledge of traditional, film photography, which was where the technique of multiple exposure first emerged. Therefore, I craft my multiple exposures in Photoshop, using layer masks and blending modes. So, basically, there was a lot of post-processing to create the final image.
In my camera bag
As previously stated, I'm still only a high school student. I'm definitely middle class, so I have to buy all of my equipment myself. Therefore, besides the chap stick and loose note cards, my bag pretty much only consists of my Nikon and a spare lens cap.
Feedback
The only advice I can really give is to always have your camera, because you never know when you might see something that would be the perfect texture of image to overlay on previously taken portraits.
