02 Multiflash

When you take a picture, you usually photograph one image per frame of film.  But in a multi-flash photograph, several exposures are made on a single negative.  Multi-flash photographs are taken in a darkened room with the camera’s shutter wide open.  The film is exposed only when the stroboscope flashes. 

The rate of the flash determines the number of pictures on the negative:  from a few, separate images (like Doc’s photographs of high-speed divers), to may overlapping ones (like his photographs of golf and tennis swings).
