Multiplicity photography

June 9, 2010 | By | 7 Replies More

I assume that this would be as much fun to create as to view. Multiplicity:

is a photography technique in which the same person is photographed from different angles and directions and then the bunch of photographs are digitally re-mastered in Photoshop showing clones of the person doing different things all in one photo.

And speaking of photos, here are 13 of them “that changed the world.”

And here’s one more gallery that caught my eye tonight. It’s called “Abandoned.”

But here’s one more entertaining collection demonstrating that it’s not easy being a photographer.

    Multiplicity pictures are now easy, but they've been done for about 100 years. I've done one myself in my B&W darkroom. Getting the seams to cleanly match was a full day's work.

    I remember seeing one of a teacher in ten places in a 1930's classroom. The caption mentioned that the photographer spent a week making the print.

    I love that "Abandoned" photography page. These remnants of civilization have such a haunting beauty. Even rusted and consumed by desolation, they speak volumes about the lives of the people who used to pass through them.
