Oops… I got a Double Exposure…

Oops… I got a Double Exposure…
Back in the day this was not uncommon.

Composite photos…
1. (Photography) a photograph formed by superimposing two or more separate photographs.

If you have ever used an older film camera, you may very well have inadvertently created a composite photograph. The classic double exposure, that would in all likelihood, end up in the trash.

I had this happen to me as well. Much later I read up on creating “double exposures” creatively within the camera. I won’t get into how this was done successfully, simply because very few if any people still use a film camera. (perhaps at another time)

With the onset of the digital age, this can all be done with almost any advanced photo editing software program. At the tips of our fingers, we have so much more versatility at a much lower cost than previously possible with film. In all likelihood the final product will be far superior and much more professional.

“What do I want with a composite photo??” Well I use them all the time. Greeting cards, invitations, or any of my posters I create, whether they are art, publicity, advertising or informational… The most common place you will see composites are on line in web sites.

These are all composite photos…
