Double exposure photography is the name of the original process where two photographs are exposed onto the same piece of film, resulting in interesting and surreal pictures. While this style is rooted in analog photography, it’s also popular with digital photographers and artists/designers who can replicate the effect in Photoshop, as I recently described in my video tutorial. Both the analog and digital techniques generate beautiful images, as you can see from today’s inspiration showcase of 45 examples of double exposure photography.

  3. beautiful images! But a large number of the images you have posted here are not “double exposure”. Double exposure refers to images created ‘in camera’. Images that have been layered in PS ARE NOT DOUBLE EXPOSURE images. Completly different disapline and technique.
