In July 2017 I experimented with a double exposure editing style on a picture of my Siberian Husky, Snort, to put on her Instagram. I was overwhelmed by the positive response from the “Dogs of Instagram” community and started offering to do edits of other people’s pets free of charge to spread positivity in the community.
Since then I’ve designed over 200 images for various users on Instagram. As they grew in popularity, I began a system where all edits remain free of charge but if someone donates to an animal welfare organization I will move their request to the top of the list. This way I can support a cause I’m passionate about (animals) while doing an activity I’m passionate about (graphic design).
I’ve featured some of my favorite double exposures below. To create them I make use of blending modes, brushes, and the clone stamp in Adobe Photoshop.
