Imprint of a Memory

Like a ghost revisiting the past; a double image in a photograph can evoke haunting emotions. Playing with long exposure times or over laying images can be a fun way to bring forth more meaning to your subject matter in a photograph.
In the days of film, double exposure could be achieved by sandwiching two or more negatives together and this technique may have had the photographer fiddling awhile to get the best angle. In the digital age software comes into play to achieve the double exposure look. In both film and digital long exposure can also achieve a similar result.
