Double Exposures - Atlanta, Ga. Photography

I'm fascinated by double exposures. When they are done well, they evoke a combination of mystery and whimsy that you can't really explain. It's just the two exposures, talking to each other, working together to make something magical.  

So, here is my attempt at creating a few. In making them, I learned a few things I'd like to share with you:

The photo with the subjects needs a light background. The second photo needs to have texture (flowers, landscapes,     wood grain, any kind of texture really). Once you've selected your photos, there are three steps I think worked for me in making a double exposure in Photoshop:
  1. Open the background photo in Photoshop
  2. Drag and drop the photo with the your main subject, make sure the sizes are the same
  3. While your main photo is selected, choose "screen" on the Layers drop down menu



Here are a few I made with some shots from Kaleb + Roxy's Wedding. The sunflower in the first photo is from their Engagement Session last summer. Enjoy!
