Had to try this technique last night. I found it under a couple of different topics. Some called it a picture-in-a-picture and others called it double exposure. The variety of samples were endless but the technique was similar.
First you have one image that you do a selection on. For me I use one of the car selections from the poster I built. For my second image, I used one of the images I captured from the window of the car as we drove along the Natchez Trace Parkway. We were the last car in a the string of 8 corvettes on our road trip a couple of weeks ago. You can just see the other cars in the bottom left tire of this image.
I then “clipped” the Natchez image inside the car and did a “blend if” adjustment, sliding the background sliders until I got just enough of the car showing and just enough of the background poking through.
Then I added another layer of the Natchez, selected the car and inverted the selection so I could only access the area outside of the car. I masked the layer with black to hide the entire layer and then used a watercolor brush with white paint to “brush in” and reveal just parts of the underlying layer of the trees and road from the Natchez picture. I reduced the opacity of this layer to give it that watercolor feel.
Hope you like it.
