Double Exposed Portraits

The next prjoect that the class and I are working on in G.T. are double exposed portraits. It all starts with a simple picture of someonet. Portrait photography is when you take a photo of a group or a person that shows expression, personality, emotion, and ect. Portrait photography relates to profile view and silhouetting because a portrait is more of a profile view of a person, showing their face. But most of the time while doing that, you get a silhouette of the person in the portrait. Which shows the outline of the person in the portrait.

But by making these double exposures, the class used photoshop. But even before you go onto photoshop you first have to get two or more photos of anything that pleases you. Then you load those photos into a stack along with your portrait. Then you use the dodge tool to start dodging your portrait. It is best that the background of the portrait is as white as possible. Once that is done, you can double click on your other images and use layer adjustments to make your double exposure to look like however you desire. After you have done all of those steps, hopefully you have made a unique double exposure! I think once you have made a double exposure you can see why you would want to make one. Making a double exposure is a great technique in photoshop, which is gaurunteed to give you great results. Plus you can make a double exposure photo that represents who you are!

For this project I used two images that tell a little something about me. I used an image that I took of a white rose, which is my favorite kind of flower. I also used an image that I took while I was on a plane coming home from the Philippines. Which is a sunset, I seriously love sunsets! I mainly used both of these images because I thought it would be a great match once I put it with my portrait. Honestly, I think I made a great choice! Although the quality of my work could have improved. I think it could've been improved by adding more texture for it to look more eye catching. But overall I'm happy with what I created and it was a great experience doing this project. I would love to do it again!
