K1000 Multiple Exposure Frames

My knowledge for 35mm is pretty skimpy, so deal with me for a minute!

I own a K1000, and what I want to do is take three exposures in a single frame. How would I go about doing that? I believe it would give me more contrast than a normal shot, is that right?

Also, if, say, I was shooting a subject at 1/125, f/8, ISO 100. If I wanted to shoot three exposures in the same frame, what should my exposure be?

If I shot one at 1/125 & f/2 and the next one at 1/125 and f/4, and the next one at f/2.8, would it give me a more contrasty image? Or am I completely wrong..

I'd have to play with mine, but I believe you hit the rewind button on the bottom and it will allow the shutter to go without advancing film.

I'm horrible at detailing film exposures (I never memorized f stops and shutter speeds) but you wan to divide your exposure into three equal segments. If you meter f8 at 1/125, you'll need to do something like f8 at 1/360 three times. Double check it with you digital body first though.

I don't know the procedure for double exposure on a k1000 but you want to take 3 exposures so you need to determine the correct exposure and divide it by 3. But you have to decide if the dof is what you want to remain constant or the shutter speed to stop or slow movement.
So if you want say 1/250 @ f/8 and you want the dof to stay the same then you would use 1/1000 @ f/8 to get the same exposure as 1/250. Just remember to figure out the correct exposure and then divide that buy the number of exposures that you want to stack on one frame. You are building your exposure up. If you don't do that you will grossly over expose your image.

Is this the same with DSLR, where you have to divide the exposure, or does the digital one measure these things itself ?

I remember shooting some scenes with my Z-1P, and they came out ok. But haven't used the function a lot

to do multiple exposure on most film bodies, you need to push the re-wind button, and crank the film advance lever forward while holding th ecrank to insure the film does not advance.

for exposure if the correct is 1/125 at F8, you need to take 3 shots each at ~ 1/375

you might want to consider picking exposures that divide or multiply by 3 to get it perfect

By the way, when you complete your multiple exposure shot and wind to the next frame of film you'll want to check that the advance lock button pops back out and the film rewind knob spins. Yeah, common sense.
