50/52 for the group T189ers photo-a-week

This week's theme: Multiplicity

The idea was to combine several shots to create a group out of just one person.

Quite a bit of running up and down the conservatory was involved in creating this multiple self-portrait! :)

Next time I try this I must remember to set the camera to manual. The three shots were not quite exactly the same brightness, which entailed more fiddling in PhotoShop to blend the three together than ought to have been necessary. Nevertheless, it was fun to do and I must try it again some time.

If only! Now if there really were three of me, we could rotate the boring chores amongst ourselves and take turns to do the interesting stuff. :)

Aw, I thought you'd cloned yourself and I was going to ask for the secret!

I can't tell that's three separate photos. Maybe the middle you's legs don't look like they belong to the background. But it's still really neat.

I sometimes wish there were three of me. We could rotate the boring chores amongst ourselves and take turns to do the interesting stuff. :)

The middle Helen looks a bit pasted on because the exposures weren't all quite the same and I had to fiddle around to blend the shots together, but it was fun to do. And having done one, I know how to do it better next time.

That's what I want - three clones to do all the housework (and cooking) while I get on with the fun stuff.
Yay!

Wouldn't it be a good idea? We could rotate the boring chores amongst ourselves and take turns to do the interesting stuff. :)

I love the balance with the vacuuming on the edges!

Thanks. I had to mentally compose the picture, then work out where the edges of the picture would be and then pose, take the shot and hope for the best. At least with digital you can take as many shots as you need and then delete the rest.
