Double Exposed Portraits

What is what is portrait photography. Portrait Photography is a person or a group of people that tell the expression that the person is giving. Portrait Photography in my opinion is best used to capture a certain moment in the past. I feel this way because of the definition of portrait photography. In the definition it says that portrait photography is used to tell the expression of the person in front of the camera. Another reason why I think this is because when I look at an old picture of me I first try to think of what I was doing back then. This is why I think that Portrait Photography so good for old memories. How can it possibly relate to profile view and silhouetting? I think all of these toppics relate because the all tell a persons mood.

Double exposers are created by taking 3 pictures. You take your main subject. In this case it was me. Behind your subject you place your other 2 images. But you have to make sure that your image of you is on top. You also have to cover the outside of your body with Midtones, Highlights or Shadows. This makes it so that your pictures do not pop up right behind your body. A good time to use a double exposer is when you what the viewer to know the subject and what they like to do.

Well in my first double exposer I just took 2 images and didn't put any effort in it. While in my second double exposer. I had to take 2 images from my life style. For my 2 images my dad took one of me surfing. Then for my other one I took a sunset picture at one of my favorite surf spots. I feel I could have done better in I was not as rushed. I was rushed on my project because I was not here one of the days we worked on our double exposers.

  3. I like how you took concern about the negative space. The message is addressed real clearly since you love surfing. The only issue about it because the top image isn't that noticeable and you could turn on curves or exposure. I think you have make the image bigger.

  5. Wow, awesome job. I love how well both of your images blend together, and they have a common theme. Your message to me definitely works because I can see both images clearly. One thing that could be improved is making yourself more visible in your image of you surfing.

  14. Your negative space looks well. Your photo could have more exposure ("What's starts with an E and rhymes with Exposure?" ~Quote From Class), but overall, the photos are amazing!

    I think your message definitely works although you can barely see the top image.
    I think to improve this, you could make the top image of you surfing brighter.
