This is not my normal style of photography, but I'm always experimenting, so maybe it will become my style! I really wanted to make a cameo-style profile self portrait using a flash gel to light the background. Once I created the portrait, though, I couldn't help thinking it might make a cool double exposure. I'm not clever enough to accomplish this sort of thing in-camera (the 6D does have a neat double-exposure feature, but I wasn't about to fly over to Paris just to take the second shot), so I took the portrait and a photo I took of the Eiffel Tower into Photoshop to blend them. All I did was reduce the saturation on my portrait and overlay the Eiffel Tower using "screen" as the blending mode. I think I might do more of these.
