Do any of you use the phoTWO camera app for iOS and Android that we announced about a year ago? Since that time we’ve significantly enhanced the app and added a number of features. The updates include a lot of colorful frames, funny stickers and a bunch of new features. If you haven’t tried it we do recommend you to have a look at the app.
In this post we are going to tell you about amazing Instagram users who travel around the world, shoot TV shows and make unusual images with phoTWO.
Let’s look at these cool images together!
Inspired by the impressive technique of double-exposure (or multiple exposure) photography, we’ve designed a new photo effect that instantly mimics it. Almost every photographer knows how hard it is to make double-exposure images without digital manipulation, in the in-camera mode only.
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?
In the end, it doesn’t matter which tools you use if you come up with a truly artistic image. We’ve produced a simple effect to smooth things down for all who’d like to create similar photos quickly and with ease. From this post, you’ll find out a few tips and tricks on how to create mind blowing images with the help of our Double-Exposure effect.
