This week, I have something very different. No stars or getting stuck in snowdrifts, and no long exposures (I know, it’s like I’m not even me anymore). This time, I am playing with double exposures with portraits, inspired by Sara K Byrne photography.
I found these amazing photos by Sara K Byrne photography that featured double exposure portraits. Double exposures are when two photos are layered one over the other to make a composite photo. In the days of film photography, this actually meant exposing the same piece of film twice. Now, the same thing can be done with a digital sensor … if you have a really expensive camera with the right software built in. I don’t, so I had to combine my photos in photoshop. It can be pretty difficult to make these photos look professional, and I am just playing around with the technique right now. But I was still pretty impressed with some of the results.
To be honest with you, right now I am just trying to mimic the examples of Sara K Byrne photos I saw, so full credit to them for an amazing idea and style. I will post a link to their website at the bottom of this post. But for now, check out what I’ve been talking about:)
There it is, my experiment with double exposure portraiture. Like I said earlier, these are fairly derivative of Sara K Byrne photography, so for some exceptional photos in this style, check out: http://www.sarakbyrne.com/canon-5d-mark-iii-double-exposure-tutorial/
I hope you liked what I came up with. I’m hoping to develop my own style with this technique, but it will take some thinking and a whole lot of work. I hope you all are around to see what it ends up being, though!
Thanks for checking my photoblog out again!
