Double exposure photography is an incredible technique with some amazing outcomes. Cameras have a sensitivity to light that is a function of time. Double exposure photography is created when the camera shutter is opened more than once to expose the film multiple times, usually to different images. When this is done the resulting photograph contains both images superimposed over each other. The technique is sometimes used as an artistic visual effect and can be used to create ghostly images or to add people and objects to a scene that were not originally there. Double exposure photography is frequently used in photographic hoaxes. The technique has been practiced for several years, and it became particularly famous recently, due to the fact that graphic editors like Photoshop can help to create the identical effect.
Double Exposure Photography that speaks to the soul
I love the look of these double exposure images. There is something in them that can’t be mimicked using Photoshop or post production photo editing application. Don’t get me wrong, as a graphic designer I love my Photoshop but there is something further that can only be described as a soul in these double exposure photographs. [Source]
