Red, Green & Blue Exposures Stacked = RGB Image

My colored gels just arrived in the mail yesterday, and here's my first success with trichromy:

Three exposures are taken, one each with a red, green and blue filter over the lens. Then, the images are stacked in photoshop. The technique can be used to make color images from three black and white images. (Each images is assigned the color channel of the filter used, then they're combined...) I skipped a step, and shot in color.

This was a proof of concept with my equipment, and I plan to try it under more interesting circumstances soon. It provides especially interesting images when used in situations where the subject moves...
