Hi everyone! Does anyone know what this photo manipulation is called where you have a ghosting effect or duplicate of the image within the same image? Its hard to describe so here is an example:

Perhaps someone has some direction they can give or a tutorial they can forward?

Thanks in advance!

Looks to me like a very simple layer duplicate, drag, set to grain merge at 15-25%, and selective erasure.

Your mileage may vary depending on the colors and composition of the original image...

It's done in camera by an easy technique called dragging the shutter. Just Google some tutorials and with a little practice you can nail it.

Mhmmm, that example shown was not done by dragging the shutter, you can see that the background is an exact copy of the foreground image.

If they had dragged the shutter it wouldn't look like that.

You can get this kind of effect by dragging the shutter, but the example has defo been done in post.

Its easy:

1) Duplicate base layer.

2) Use the Move Tool to move it to the side (just drag it).

3) Reduce opacity to taste.

4) Use a mask to remove what you don't want over the top layer.

Done.

Any trouble send me a message and I will send you an example.

Oh I didn't realize it would be that easy, sometimes the obvious is not so obvious! Thank you for your advice!
