Which version of Photoshop are you using?
Have you installed all the updates?
What OS version?

And Photoshop does not have a "negative" blend mode.

Can you provide a bit more detail about what you're doing?

PS Version 14.2.1 x64
all updates ok
Mac OS 10.7.5 and 10.8.5 too.
please switch "negative" to "difference"

I made some sreenshots of the event.
in step 2, just move the group over the area.

That looks about as expected.

When you have "pass through" it is as if the layers weren't in a group, and their blending applies as if they were at the top level (i.e.: the group is not blended separately, and only used for organization).

When you set a blend mode on the group, the items in the group get blended together, then the group blend mode is applied (i.e.: the group is blended separately).

I just think that the white parts in the shoe should be not be there with multiply blend selected.

Look at the group - the multiply is only going to apply WITHIN the group when you have any blend mode other than "pass through" selected for the group.
