DIY Double Exposure Photography


My love for double exposure photography started while admiring Von Marcus' perfect shotsJon Duenas' series of double exposure portraits and Jasper James' work. There's something so surreal about double exposure photography, like waking up from a dream when everything is still fuzzy and hazy... Simply stunning.

Double exposure photography can be achieved either with traditional film, or through digital photography and post processing. And actually, that second option is pretty easy! Photojojo (who always has the best photography related DIY projects) recently wrote a short but effective article on how to shoot dreamy double exposure portraits, as well as a guide to double exposure photography (including a list of apps that allow you to create double exposure photos from your iphone or smartphone shots!).

I wanted to try my hand at it with Photoshop, so I looked for an in-depth tutorial and found exactly what I was looking for on Bubby and Bean. If you like to play with Photoshop, be sure to check it out, it's actually super easy. Psst...if you don't have Photoshop but still want to try this out, you can download a free trial on their website!
