At first the process of creating double exposed portraits seemed confusing as well as difficult, but after we received a demo and also have the chance to explore, it was quite simple. To make this type of portrait image in Photoshop you must first take your profile portrait. Then you can take two different textural photographs, like s landscape photo for example, or an image that symbolizes you. Now you can open Photoshop and select the "load pictures in to stack" option and make sure you size the image to be 8.5 in. x 11 in. and the resolution to 300. Then you are ready to double click on your portrait layer and select a blend mode of your choice and experiment the different options. After choosing a mode that you are satisfied with, you can do the same for the next picture, for the last image you may re-size or adjust its placement if you'd like. Next you can play around with your two textural images until you get something you like and you can also add adjustment layers if you wish. I believe you will be amazed at how different options can make your image look spectacular just as it did to mine. These photos are really fun to make and look absolutely stunning!
For my practice image I faced towards the right and for my final picture I faced towards the opposite direction; left. I did this so when both images were completed I could position them to face each other. By doing so, I wanted to represent two different people looking at each other and them taking in their differences... just like how we should do the same in our every day lives. So for my practice photograph I captured a tree with sunlight passing through its branches and also another tree but with a different look and perspective on it. I really liked my practice image because of the position of the sun-rays... it kind of made my face look like it had a sparkle or shimmer. The two other images I took for my final was a picture of a spectacular sunset and a picture of me at Lumaha'i beach (those pictures are above).These two pictures symbolize me because I absolutely love the beach and one of the meanings for my name; Leleaka, is the light.
