Multiple Me
The first step in taking this picture was setting my camera up on my tripod and setting my interval timer to take a shot every 10 seconds.  From there I just walked around the frame, smiled, and ignored the fact that I looked really silly!

Once I had the pictures taken, I loaded all the ones I wanted to use onto photoshop.

I picked one picture to paste all of the other self-portraits into.  From there I used the Lasso tool to draw a line around me in one picture, copied it, pasted it, and then tried to match the spot where it fit as best as I could.  It is kind of like putting a puzzle together. If you look at the picture on the left you can see where I have used to Lasso tool to delineate what to copy.  In the picture in the middle you can see that I have pasted it but not yet placed it.

I made a second version of the picture with one more me =).   Although I used photoshop, Gimp is a free photo editing software that would do just as good of a job as photoshop did.

  1. Nicely done! Love the creativity and overall effect!

  2. Really creative! I'm teaching a photo manipulation workshop in July and will use this as an example of how to use the lasso tool. And I think I'll try this myself - but with my grandkids because I don't like photos of myself.
