This double exposure effect is not only awesome to look at but it’s also super easy to pull off.
If you’re looking to add a sweet effect to your editorial toolbox, you might want to give double exposure a try. Yeah, I know, double exposure is usually something you associate with photography, but you can definitely do the same thing with video—and if you liked the look with still images, you’re going to love the look when they’re moving. In this tutorial, Caleb Pike of DSLR Video Shooter shows you how to pull off a double exposure video without expensive equipment or special tools. Check it out below:
Okay, so the first thing you’re going to need, at least to follow along with this tutorial, is a white background to put your subject in front of. Pike shows you several ways you can do this if you don’t have access to an infinity white background and studio lights, including shooting in an open garage on a sunny day or shooting in front of a window, the idea of which is to blow out your shot so everything in the background is white and then adjusting your grade in post.
