Creative double exposure portrait photography – Photographer Rincon, Puerto Rico

I first started experimenting with double exposures a few years ago and now I’m hooked!

I love image manipulation and creating digital art in Photoshop, but I also really enjoy capturing a distorted image right in my camera. There is something really pure about creating a really amazing distorted image without using computer software. This technique involves setting the camera to capture two images within the same frame. In the days of film photography you just wouldn’t have wound the film over, today there is a special setting on the digital cameras that allows you to do more than one exposure in a frame. I usually start with a silhouette image and then look for a fun texture in the environment near me to fill in the details.

Double exposures add fun to a photo session and also help to tell the clients story a little better. For ocean lovers, images of the beach and the sea merged into their portraits are perfect for adding some magic to the final collection of photographs. I absolutely love taking a few of these and then getting to show them to my clients on the back of my camera, it always makes people smile!

Water is always a great subject for photographs. The way it reflects like and the amazing shapes it creates are always so ingesting visually. This double exposure is extra special because this couple really loves the ocean, so the photograph describes them perfectly. Photograph by Rincon Images wedding photographer Puerto Rico.

When making double exposure photographs it is important to experiment with the orientation of the camera. This particular photograph was made by combining a vertical image and a horizontal image.  Photograph by RIncon Images wedding photographer puerto rico.

Bubbles and sea foam! The size relationship of the two frames combined here is what makes this image interesting. The tiny sea foam bubbles look larger than life agains the silhouette of the couple on the beach.  Photograph by Rincon Images wedding photographer Puerto Rico.
