Double Exposure Cinemagraphs

Over the last year, we’ve seen an explosion in double exposure photos. That design technique where you blend two photos together to create a mesmerizing hybrid image. 

Even more popular, are double exposure sihlouettes. Usually a side profile or portrait, often blended with a scenery, like mountains, trees, or the ocean, as a few examples. It’s like peering into someone elses mind. Though not an entirely new trend, they’ve gained popularity over the last year, and, consequently, people have begun to take new and exciting creative spins on the technique.

In the world of cinemagraphs, we’ve noticed many members of our Flixel community starting to create cinemagraph double exposures. It’s a beautiful thing to see our creators adopt various visual techniques and blend them with the art of cinemagraphs. Cinemagraphs are not just a fad, they’re an entire medium full of possibilities.
