Double Exposure Tutorial PDF


the art of double exposures by wendy laurel


A 136 page PDF explaining in depth the why, how, and art of shooting double exposures. The PDF goes through why I shoot double exposures and what my thinking is behind the art. I go through and explain in great detail how I make all the different types of different exposures step by step. I talk about the different cameras you can use and the different film stocks and their differences. The techniques apply for digital shooters as well. I have images for each technique and images of all the mistakes and how to avoid them. Also how to level up and great unexpected images and all the different creative ideas you can use to make YOUR voice shine. Homework and examples are included for each section.

You can ORDER my SEEING DOUBLE workshop for $149 — just click here.

Jonathan Canlas says —

I’ll be honest, double exposures hasn’t been something in my repertoire of shooting. But after reading Wendy’s super comprehensive “Seeing Double” guide, I think that all is going to change. I love that she isn’t teaching you how to be her, she is sharing everything she knows about shooting double exposures, and encourages you to find your own path. The assignments and info in this pdf is not only easy to comprehend, there are a lot of A-HA moments, but it really gets your own creative wheels spinning on how you are going to implement what she has taught. This guide is really a great way to get inspired and open up your creative horizons. Worth every penny.

I put everything I know and practice about double exposures into the PDF.  I go through all my successes and each type of double exposure I make (turns out there are alot of different kinds) and explain how thoroughly.  I also show my mistakes and explain what went wrong and why.  Along with the PDF, there is a facebook group SEEING DOUBLE where I will answer all questions and we can share our double exposures and learn from everyone else.

The price is $149. Just click here to purchase the PDF.

“Its harder with film to blow out the highlights of the sky than with digital so my outlines are not also so clean.”

Get that you’ve never shot Fuji Velvia, or any other slide film, for that matter. Slide film has the same dynamic range as digital, so it WILL blow out your highlights if not exposed correctly.

yes.. that is true!

Ah, finally had a few minutes to check this out! Wendy, you are so rad and I love your doubles! Thanks for sharing!

thanks alpana

I’m trying to figure out if over exposure equals 1,2,4 on my cameras exposure knob or if it is 1/2, 1/4. I know that with multiple exposures it’s important to adjust but don’t know what number equals under exposed.


Your photos are incredibly beautiful – I’m such a big fan! Thank you so much for posting about double exposure, I cannot wait to give it a go.

Hey Wendy, thank you very much for this blog. Great advise here and very informative compared to other sites on this subject. Great photographs by you and I will be following you on instagram from now on. Thanks again. Chris

Love this!! Thank you from my whole heart!! I had a question! With the first image are you able to share your settings? What did you meter and set your camera for on the girl?

Hey Wendy,
thanks for this very simple explaination of double exposure. Now I see things in a clearer way. Can’t wait to make my second attempts with better technical background.
Have a nice weekend!

Wow! I’m so impressed with your art. :) But is it even possible to make a double exposure on a rangefinder? Please respond. Thank you!
