Увлекательные примеры двойной экспозиции в фотографии. Часть 1.

Olivia Chigas
“My process of creating double exposures – the only thing I know for sure is that I don’t know how they will end up. I use exclusively film and my method of creating double exposures is to process the entire roll of film, including I take various objects, textures, composition, etc., and then rewind to the beginning, then to photograph another set of images on top of the film. There is a risk that not every image will find a mate in the “work”. For me indefinitely – what images will match together, and the color, and that will come through these unexpected compositions that were subconsciously created by me.”

“These images live in my “line of flight”. This name comes from the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze in the meaning of ‘ligne de fuite’ (“flight line”). This concept covers different aspects of feelings, the flow, disappearance, and stretching into the distance – this flight line is connected with the possibility of adaptations to the pattern. First, I chose this concept, and begin with photos of me in several places with my mobile phone (iPhone 5). It is very important that I wanted to use my phone, as this phone has many features. I didn’t want to take the usual silhouette, and I just wanted to reflect some of the areas and areas on my face using natural light. Then I took photos of destroyed buildings and streets with trees. I wanted to join the flight line with these images and wanted to create a single composition. I think that double exposure or multiple exposure gives me this opportunity. First, I use my phone, try a few double exposures in the application for the mobile phone, then I add some textures with Photoshop or even some mobile apps.”

“These are images of my friend, Olivia, who wanted double exposures for yourself to use in your projects. I took her portraits with Canon Rebel T5, and then a couple of them took stock images. Once in Photoshop, I was just experimenting with the blending modes until I found the desired effect. I placed the portrait at the bottom of the layers panel, and then mixed with the second photo using blending modes Overlay, Screen, Lighten, and a combination of blending modes, adjusting the transparency of a layer. After that, I apply a layer mask to use on the second photo brush, paint in the right areas so that they become stronger or weaker. Masks mainly help me keep a clear face. Finally, I add adjustment layers to enhance color and contrast, and apply the Sharpen filter as needed.”

“I took this photo using Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 using a special mode – I just researched the use of different blending modes such as vivid light, soft light. The girl in the first photo and the two guys we’re shooting for a fashion shoot, done in black-and-white concept. In the office during a break I usually look for online materials, to look at those things that are most unique to the first eye of the viewer. Once when viewing web pages I saw an effect called Double exposure / multiple exposure, and they were very impressed. First I open Photoshop and try to do a few things: I think about an hour before to do something, since double exposure requires a lot of patience. After that, I explore several different styles in this kind of editing and start working.”
