What is “Double Exposure”?
Double exposure originally happened on accident when analog cameras did not operate correctly or photographers forgot to adjust the camera after taking a shot. What happend was that after taking a first picture, the film would not be pulled over to the side. So that part of the film would not be exposed to the light once, but twice. Now the two pictures would blend into each other while the first one usually turned into a high key image, getting very bright.
That probably wasn’t the best explanation so if you didn’t get what wrote just search for images about “double exposure” on the web – or just scroll down.
A Reason to Practice
Since I’m studying media & stuff I also have to deal with digital photography & manipulation. And there is this program I wanted to practice with which is called Affinity Photo – if you can’t afford Adobe Photoshop I recommend you check it out, btw.
Anyways, I needed a reason and a goal to create something with it.
Double exposure has become very popular in the recent past. And people proved that you can achieve great results doing it digitally. I wanted to try if I could create this myself. But while going through my photo archive I had an idea:
I asked three of my favorite content creators (@JonnyPew, @Manic_Velocity, @Reload) what their favorite ships, empire and color would be. Luckily everyone of them answered. With this three parameters I set out capturing pictures of their in-game characters directly from the client.
After that I went over to the gorgeous EVE Designer provided by EVE NT. There I took pictures of the ships in front of pretty nebula backgrounds. You can make tons of adjustments in the designer, even put guns on the ships and let them play the firing animation. All in all an absolutely great tool.
Well I’m not going to bore you with any more details. Here is the outcome. Klick on the pictures to see them in full size.
Please keep in mind that all the pictures are not meant to be displayed bigger than 1920*1080 pixels which is FullHD. I would have created them bigger, but since I only had images from my client which displays only FullHD you probably won’t be able to make them much bigger without seeing individuals pixels…
If you wan’t such a picture your own you might be able to convince by giving me ISK.
