Double Exposure in Camera with Canon 5D Mark III

Inspiration April 8th 2013 4:00 PM 2 Comments

With the rise of the DSLR and processing on the computer using tools like Adobe Photoshop the art of shooting on film and developing images has dimminished drastically. With that many old techniques have gone the way of film and are no longer used or needed. One feature that is possible on some of todays higher end DSLR’s is the technique of double exposures. This technique of layering images on top of eachother can be used to create some really amazing and creative images.

With all the menus, options, and shooting styles that todays cameras have it can be hard to find these features let alone know how to use them. That’s why Sara K Byrne, an Idaho based wedding photographer has put out a very helpful tutorial on how to do this using the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, though many other cameras are capable of it. Watch the video tutorial below and check out some of Sara’s double exposure images.

    hi Sara, All I can say is WOW, what a fantastic technique. I’m one of those newbee’s that jsut wants to learn so much really quick. I have a 7D/24-105 and like to learn as much as I can from asking lots of silly questions from people. Can I do this type of double exposure via Photoshop CS6 and maybe how??? Please. Any ideas or comments to what I can do, please give me some ideas. I love the idea of creating way out effects with photos like you’ve done. Please help. Cheers, Kev.

      You have to work with two layers and change the blending mode.

      Depending of the portrait picture and the texture picture le best mode will change.
