12 Beautiful Double Exposure Artworks and How to Create Them in Photoshop

Category: Photoshop Guides

In photography and cinematography, a multiple exposure is the superimposition of two or more exposures to create a single image, and double exposure has a corresponding meaning in respect of two images. The exposure values may or may not be identical to each other.

Digital technology enables images to be superimposed over each other by using a software photo editor such as Adobe Photoshop in this case. Photoshop enables the opacity of the images to be altered and for an image to be overlaid over another. They also can set the layers to multiply mode, which ‘adds’ the colors together rather than making the colors of either image pale and translucent.

This technique has been adopted by many artists lately, giving as a result a wide range of creative ideas and concepts wich are translated into beautiful surreal double exposure artworks.

This gallery shows some interesting images from creative artists that adopted this technique. At the end of this article you will learn how to create these amazing artworks.
