About This Class

This class will teach you how to easily make a stunning double exposure (self-)portrait in Adobe Photoshop in just a few minutes. The skills you learn during the class project are very useful, basic Photoshop techniques that can be applied to all your future photo editing projects.

Double exposure is a wonderful way to make a very personal self-portrait that you can use in all your social media accounts.


What do I learn?

  • layering multiple images
  • using blending modes
  • photo retouching: making unwanted details disappear using a layer mask and the clone stamp
  • altering colours with a colour balance adjustment layer
  • awareness of visual communication

Who is this class for?

This class is aimed at students of any level. There is no prior knowledge required. You only need to have access to Adobe Photoshop to successfully participate in this class. 

For beginners I provide stock photographs you can play with to quickly learn how to make a digital double exposure (available in the class project section).

Let's play!
