If you’ve been around here for any length of time, it probably doesn’t come as a surprise to you and that I absolutely love double exposures. It’s one of those fun things that you get to be able to do when you’re shooting film and being a San Francisco Family Photographer. It really is so unique and such a fun little surprise to see how they turn out every time I get my scans back from my film lab. Sure, I’ve taken a lot of double exposures that won’t see the light of day, for whatever reason. Especially when I was learning how to do them. But now I try to take at least one of every single session and often times that they turn out so gorgeous.

So it’s safe to say that double exposures are probably one of my favorite things about shooting film in general. I mean, you can make double exposures digitally, but I really don’t think it has the same effect. 

So today I thought I would share with you some of my favorite double exposures that I took last year in 2022. Kind of a “best of” post of sorts. But specifically dedicated to double exposures on film. I plan on doing some more posts on double exposures in general in the future. Filled with tips and tricks on how to take them. But for now I go ahead and take a gander through these photos that I absolutely love.
