Ingenious blendings of photos and drawings, created by the Belgium artist Ben Heine, inspired us to design our own series of photo effects in the ‘Drawing vs Photography’ style.
Sometimes a photo is not enough to express the mood and idea of an image in your head. This is when an artistic touch may become necessary. Our new effects turn part of a photo into a sketch or drawing, showing how art emerges from reality. Each template demonstrates different drawing tools, each of them with its own mood and surrounding. Thereby, you can choose and apply effects following your mood and virtu.

But now we are here to mend our way and tell you about lots of new amazing effects that wait for you on Funny.Pho.to.
So, what’s new?
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.
Let it blend!
Do you need a special reason to share joy and inspiration with others? We think that ‘just because’ is the best reason. That’s why in January (and despite holidays) we’ve made seven new effects. Use them to spread the winter miracle, make a funny face montage with Gollum from LoTR or give a brand new look to your travel photos. Be sure to check the new artistic effect in Ben Heine style and put your face on a Time magazine cover.
