Traditional photographers have long been able to create two exposures on a single piece of film. This technique is now also easily achieved digitally - overlaying images using a ‘multiply’ or transparency filter, for example. This example shows how the integration of two different scenes can help to strengthen the ideas communicated within an artwork.
The black that covers Ophelia's face represents the constant death and sorrow she is surrounded by throughout the play. She is strongly by insulted by Hamlet, and is forced to face the death of her father. This black sheath shows that the negativity she has dealt with has masked her, as well as blocked her from living the life that she seeks.
