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.
