  4. The way the photographer was able to achieve these photos is by using double exposure. They took the portrait and put another photo over it.

    We’ve done something like this before with double exposure.

    This is different from our double exposure as they look like they’ve had more Photoshop added to them instead of ours.

    These images make me feel really trippy and weirded out. Almost mind melting.

  6. I think the photographer used double exposure to get the effects that are in the photo. Yes I have done somethings similar before in order to get this type of photo. Well I think the photographer knows how to to more stuff with double exposure and I don’t know that much on how ti use it, I only know the basics on how to use double exposure. I think these images make me feel like doing double exposure again but with different photos that I could use. If I were to use double exposure again I would try to get more knowledge on how to make the photos look more better than the other ones that I did.

  7. Overlapping two or more photos together to create these type of photos. And yes I’ve done something similar to this before. Its different because its very solid and clear its not ghosted its very solid as if it was already there. The images make me feel like things or people are dis formed but in a beautiful way. Finding a way to make an object dis formed it a unique and creative way that fits the subject.

    Using a double exposure type technique. Putting a photo on top of another picture and making them look like one.

    Have you done something similar before?
    Yes, We have done Double Exposure which is almost the same thing.

    How is this different from what you have done before?
    These seem like they have had more photoshop work done to them, the heads seem like the environment is taking over more of the image.

    How do these images make you feel?
    These photos make me feel interested because I want to know what the photographer’s goal was.

    What could you take from these images that you could apply to your own work?
    Make some photos and combine them to make a more interesting and better looking photo.

Our pieces are different because his our professional pieces and have a lot better detail and are better because he blended the background picture with the portrait and made them look like they were connected. they make me feel inspired. I could try to affiliate the pictures in kinda the same way.

  11. these photos all feature a double exposure which can be done on a film camera but i have a feeling these were digital and we’ve done something very similar only this person is putting deep thought into where and and how to merge the two subject photos. and these images, like most nature pictures make me feel like going out into it and these photos give a better sense of which two subjects may work very well for double exposures.

  15. I think the photographer was able to create this effect by using double exposure. I’ve done something similar before. These look more professional than mine did. These images are kind of relaxing and intriguing. I would like to do double exposure in black and white like these because I’ve never done that before.

  16. The photographer was able to create this effect by imposing one photo over the other. The double exposure was the same concept. This is different from double exposure because the second image only appears in the outlines of the first image.

  17. It looks to me that the photographer was able to create this effect by double exposure. They combined the two photos in a creative way. These are different from what we did before because they are black and white, they are completely overlapped instead of just the background as well. These images make me realize the connection between humans and nature, and that we all have a bit of a connection in us.

  19. How do you think the photographer was able to create this effect? Use the double exposure method and just black and white it. but I feel they used a lot of photoshop. Have you done something similar before? I mean yes but not that much work because I believe that took a lot of work. How is this different from what you have done before? It’s different because there is more work and maybe they used something else to make the image stand out more. How do these images make you feel? Like they seem a little depressing but it doesn’t make me feel depressed at all. What could you take from these images that you could apply to your own work? Find those connection between the person and whatever else image you use.
