Right, let's get into some photography alchamey shall we? I'm a HUGE fan of a double exposure. I always have been right from film days when we had to rewind a frame and just guess where to put the next exposure. But I think having learnt the low tech way that I have a good instinct for what works and what doesn't. However with the progression in technology in both cameras and post processing, really the world is your oyster when it comes to experimenting with multiple exposures. It's not a straight forward technique though and I find that I rarely shoot them at weddings as I'm just rushing about too much, so I always hold a lot of admiration for photographers that do manage to achieve them.

When I first saw this image from the insanely talented Husband and Wife Duo Simple Tapestry, I was simply blown away. I'm sure, like me you'd like to know a little more about how this was achieved.

"The Bride and groom are both wedding photographers (The Martins) and insisted that we have complete creative control to do any mad shit we might not normally be able to do. Needless to say we ended up really pushing them (at one stage getting someone to throw axes dangerously close to their heads). We couldn't have asked for two cooler, easier to photograph humans. 

I don't want to give too much away but that was our first Sony wedding. Not having in-camera D.E. is a pain in the arse so you really have to expose and frame properly then align both with a screen layer after. To do that I had the initial exposure displayed on my EVF, turning it on and off as I framed the second exposure to ensure they would match up right. Both were exposed for highlights, and the lovely golden hour light did the rest. 
 
The shot was initially planned when we shot Nikon but it wasn't that much more effort on the Sony - just another step."
