I tried to dabble with the multiplicity technique, with as many as 7 gals in the fray. Turned out pretty decent.
And well, how did I do it?
I’m going to show you all as to what (and how) I did last weekend when I went on a trip to Kodaikanal with my crazy gang of friends! What better models than our own bunch of friends???!! 😀
There were 7 gals, all of whom wanted to be featured in an overtly hyped (by me) photography technique called Multiplicity. 😀
I had not carried my tripod nor was there any flat surface to keep the camera on. So I had to sit still making sure that I didn’t move the camera after I had fixed the frame. The frame I fixed were the three stone benches on the lawn at the guest house we stayed overnight.
For the first shot, the gals were all asked to sit on the three benches.
For the second, for lack of any other ideas (there were too many objects already in the frame to think of any theme or message) they were all asked to stand right behind and look at the place where they had sat down in the first shot.
And then when I got back home, I merged the first shot with the second shot using the Adobe Photoshop using layer mask & brushes (took me about 20 mins).
After merging, I opened the merged picture in Picasa and applied the ‘Vignette’ frame! Below is the final image! 😀
