Double Exposure in Affinity Photo

 

Hello, just wanted to do a tutorial on double exposure in Affinity Photo. Thanks to Anastasia for the stock portrait in this tutorial. The photo of the woods was taken by me in Portola Redwoods.

Double Exposure Portrait

First off, I am loving the paint brush selection tool. I highly recommend watching the video tutorials from Affinity Photo.

I use the paint brush selection and just paint over what I want to make a mask. Refine the selection and output to a mask.

Place the forrest image in a new layer above the original photo. Set it to Screen.

Here are what the layers look like.

Original Normal, Forrest Photo Screen, Black & White Adjustment, Mask, Original Photo Screen, Levels Adjustment Normal.

I make sure to make the levels adjustment set to darker. But don’t be afraid to play around with the settings.
