Tutorials photoshop : Double Exposure Style

Step 1

Open Photoshop and start a new document. I am using A4 for the format. After that get a photo of a person you want to use for your composition. The image I am using is courtesy of Shutterstock. It’s titled Portrait of a young beautiful blonde model wearing trendy glasses and casual shirt and posing over metal background. Hipster style by Augustino

Isolate the girl from the background using the select tool. Use the Refine Edges option to help with the hair.

Now let’s add the second image for the double exposure experiment. The image is titled Silhouette of tree. Black and white by Namsilat. Again isolate the background, we will just use the branches.

Time for some refinements, especially on the edges and to make them look random and not so uniform. Also duplicate the girl’s layer and move it on top of the other layers. Reduce the oapcity to 70%.

Conclusion

Resize the layers to place the girl in the center of the document. You can also add a photo filter, Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Photo Filter. You can use deep blue or orange to add a really nice style to the final design.
