Prob easy but, Golf Backswing composite

I am trying to take 10 images of a backswing in golf (and forward swing) and combine them into one poster (or composite) so it shows all the movements of the golf club and arms.

I tried the screen mode on each layer but then it blows it all out (since it's during the day). I tried to compensate the exposure (using "exposure" in photoshop, but that didn't look good either).

Is there an easier way to combine all these photos to make it look Real?

I wish I had an example to show you all.

Thanks for any help

Ryan

Ryan, have you tried File>Automate>Photo Merge?

hope you used a tripod!.... Each frame on its own layer with a black mask... registered/lined up with the previous layer... Paint on the mask of each frame with white of what you want to show

SO I am having a hugely difficult time with masking since the arms are all over the place and the body moves and it's almost in the same place.. Makes for a terrible time to get everything NOT looking like a weird collage.

Me thinks there is going to be lap-over unless you pick one frame as the anchor and maybe fade/shadow in every third frame from there..

Do these samples I found on Google show what you want?

I think they were done using high speed photography in studio with fixed lights or reflector surfaces placed in strategic places then rendered in 3D

Have you tried stacking the registered images into ten layers and just changing the mode on all the layers to 'Darken'?
