Double exposure photography is a the name of a photographic technique where the photographer gives two (or more) exposures in the camera. This kind of images used to be created with the help of Photoshop but now photographers have found a way to create the effect in-camera. And the results are just amazing.

What happens is that the photographer i.e. you expose the camera to one landscape, but instead of completing that picture, you superimpose another landscapes on the previously given exposure. So the first exposure becomes the carrier and the second exposure fills the carrier with the new image. Confused? Just take a look at the images, you won’t be.

Even though Designzzz is primarily a web design blog but we do share a bit of photography here and there. Today, when I saw examples of double exposure photography, I had no choice but to share this amazing spectacle with you.

But before we go on the pictures, here’s a reminder. There’s a video tutorial and some related reads in the end for taking such pictures yourself.

When I saw this double exposure photography, I had no choice but to go and try it myself so I checked out tutorials and articles on this thing. It was only when I had learned everything, I realized that my camera broken. I’ll be trying it in a few days but with the help of the video tutorial, you can try it today.
