double exposure: photoshop edition

LR Double Exposure-1i’ve been curious for a while what it would be like to start doing manual double exposures, so on a fairly spur of the moment trip to st. john’s this weekend to see my sister i took advantage of the 8 hours travel time both ways and tried my hand at them.

i’ll admit i’m pretty much photoshop illiterate, so i edited both images in lightroom first and them imported them into photoshop, played with opacities, reimported the final images to lightroom and fixed minor details and clarity. thoughts? it still doesn’t touch film (duh, considering film is the best) but i think it might be interesting all the same.

hope everyone had a good weekend!

much love,

candace

  1. Hey! Along with playing with the opacities you could also try messing with the blending options, which is the drop down menu next to the opacity bar in the layers palette. You can get something like this:

    While it still doesn’t hold a candle to film, you can get some interesting results. (I used ‘Lighten’ for the one above). Hope I’m not repeating something that you already know. If so, sorry! Hope it helps. 🙂
