Double Exposure Photography

Double Exposure hay còn gọi là Multiple exposure là một kỹ thuật đơn giản trộn (hay lồng gì đấy, tiếng Anh là combine) 2 bức ảnh khác nhau thành một. Kỹ thuật này đã được dùng trong một vài năm gần đây và chúng nhanh chóng được nhiều người đón nhận, một phần thành công trong kỹ thuật này chính là ở những phần mềm chình sửa ảnh như Photoshop đã tạo ra sự đồng nhất cho bức ảnh dù trước đó chúng hoàn toàn khác nhau.

Với kỹ thuật Double Exposure, chúng ta có thể tạo ra được nhiều hiệu ứng ảnh khá thú vị, có thể thành phẩm tạo ra sẽ có chút gì đó ma quái, kỳ dị hoặc có khi lại đầy nội bên, cảm xúc bên trong.

Gather My Strength. “I have wanted to do some Francis Bacon inspired photos. They’re strange, dark, captivating, slightly uncomfortable, and probably done to death. Uploading this makes me a little uncomfortable as I don’t have the most photogenic body or anything like that. Face is adequately smooshed and melted though.” (Image Source: beast love)
