How I Multiplied Myself

posted November 19th, 2009
Hey

I recently posted this photograph and I thought I'd share a how-to for making your own.



It's really quite simple if you have photoshop If you don't I'm sure there is software out on the web to do a similar type of thing.

This post http://www.petapixel.com/2009/07/10/7-steps-to-taking-clone-photographs/ pretty much says it all. I've done this a few times and this guys technique is how I would recommend doing it.

Because some of the "Me's" were overlapping I had to spend quite some time blending and cutting around edges to get it just right.

I used a similar technique for this photo...



with this one I just took an empty photo then one of myself then one of the back of my jumper and merged them as best I could.

Have fun making your own I hope to see some appearing soon :-)

This is the coolest thing ever! Good job! I have the photo shop suite and don't know the first thing about it. It seems so intricate.

HOLY. CRAP. I just did a few days ago when I was bored and alone in the basement. Not a shock that someone else would do it, but that I would see it here so soon.

Good stuff!
