In photography the double-exposure technique is used to combine two different images into a single one. Originally it was used in the days of film. Then cameramen took one picture and then instead of advancing the filmstrip to the next frame (to take the next picture), they left the film in the same place and took another picture right on top of it. The resulting image contained the subsequent picture superimposed over the original. Photographers used similar techniques. But it’s much easier to achieve the same result with Photoshop or another graphics editor (if you have a legitimate copy and know how to use it). That’s why nowadays the majority of photographers use clipping and masking techniques to recreate the double-exposure effect.
There are many talented gurus of double-exposure photography: Brandon Kidwell, who creates mind-blowing images from iPhone photos; Dan Mountford — the master of storytelling photography; Tierney Gearon and her genre scenes of city life; and many more. All of them use different cameras, methods, and techniques, and make unique artistic images. This task takes a lot of time and effort, but the result is worth it, isn’t it?

We’ve produced a simple effect to smooth things down for all who’d like to create similar photos quickly and with ease.
