Creating double exposures in Photoshop is a relatively simple task. Most will go straight to masking, and that is one great technique. However, there are other methods, like Blend If, that can give us a unique look for double exposures.

What is double exposure?

In Film Photography, one can create a double exposure by photographing a scene, rolling back the film, and photography another scene on top of it.
One could create a double exposure in the darkroom using varying times for two different negatives on the same photographic paper.

In Photoshop, the sky is the limit for creating double exposures. You can use masking, opacity, blend modes, blend if, or some combination of all of them. In this video, I will show you how I use Blend If and my new Blend If Panel to create double exposure compositions in a matter of seconds!
