I'm kinda Klosterman, your host for creating a double exposure in Photoshopped with Aaron Nace. So please help me kick off Photoshopped Week and welcome Aaron Ace to the creative. I've stage creating a double exposure. This is, uh we're gonna have an awesome time in this class. This is going from shoot all the way through edit. So in the shoot section, we've got actually a couple of different photo shoots we're gonna be doing We're gonna be combining exposures here in the studio and then in the edit section, we're going to be actually bringing everything together in photo shop. So we're gonna pretty much jump right in to our first shoot. We're going to kind of talk through the lighting we use as well as the concept we're using here, and everything is set up, but the lights aren't exactly where we want them to be yet Basically were in the stage of like, you know, after you figure out an idea something you want to shoot, we're in the stage of like, all right, now, let's make it look good...
. So it's things look ok now, but we're gonna be adjusting lighting and moving things around here for just a minute. So the basic idea for the shoot is to combine our model Alex doing an awesome job. We're going to combine her with some ferns. We've actually got some ferns back here on day. We're gonna make it look like the ferns are kind of like coming out of the back of her head. So we did her hair like a really cool, like, big way, and it's gonna look like basically, it's a portrait with ferns, like, kind of growing out of the back of her head, which is gonna be really sick. So it's all gonna be done in a double exposure. So we're gonna shoot these separate. We're gonna shoot our portrait of Alex first, and then we're gonna be shooting the ferns seconds, and then we're gonna be combining everything together in photo shop. So, yeah, it's gonna be really exciting.
Creating one interesting image out of two or more requires good composition, lighting, and an eye for which images will work together to tell a compelling story. Aaron Nace will walk you through this process, and show you how to create double exposure images from shoot through post. You'll learn how to shoot textures that work well with a silhouetted portrait, and how to combine photos of two people to make an artistic image. Learn Aaron's tips for combining images efficiently with blending modes, layer masks, and advanced blending options.
