In today’s video tutorial we’re going to play around in Photoshop to create a cool Double Exposure effect, which is originally a Photography technique using nothing but cameras to blend two separate images together by exposing the film twice in two completely different photos. The style of this effect has also become popular with digital artists, who can use Photoshop to mimic the double exposure effect to create a surreal image. Popular examples are the True Detectives TV show intro, or if you’re a Taylor Swift fan, you might recognise this effect from her latest music video.

In today’s showcase I featured 30 cleverly illustrated poster designs that have been hand drawn in the popular double exposure style.
