The Lost Art of Double Exposure

March 11, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

Back in the film days, I always had some fun doing double exposures as you never really knew how they would turn out. That's not to say you did not have some control over the exposures, it simply depended how it all went down in the dark room. When I go back to the days of film and look at actual prints, it made me realize that this really is a lost art and most times when you see a double exposure in todays world, its a good bet to say that the image was created using a photo editing program. 

In todays post I am sharing one composition that was done in black and white and one in color. While editing these images I realized how much fun this can be from the creative side, and although these are simple base images, having the ability to add textures and other enhancements to the compositions, you really can get pretty creative with these.  AfterthoughtsAfterthoughtsA double exposure composition as framed Afterthoughts Black and WhiteAfterthoughts Black and WhiteBlack and white artistic print done in a double exposure editing style These were images I shot for a friend of mine who competed in the Miss New York contest a few years back and we shared some mutual interests regarding loss of life due to drug addiction. 

We could dive into that but the sting still hurts and old wounds take time to scar. 

Tell me what you think. Color or black and white? Did I di the art of double exposure justice? 

Thank you for taking a second to visit my post and may life be blessed.
