NFRCC Photo Conference 2022

Lisa & Tom Cuchara

Multiplicity program

Multiplicity is a photography technique in which the same bird/critter/subject/person is photographed, and then the photographs are digitally re-mastered in Photoshop, showing clones of the person/subject all in one photo. For people subjects the final photo makes a great website, blog, or Facebook photo. It is fun to do with kids and seniors. Learn how to make yourself into a triplet or quintuplet!  For non-people subjects multiplicity can be fun and add impact to your images. For birds and critters and such you can display different behaviors, expressions, wing patterns, locations, etc. This technique is also a fun way to learn layers and masks…

Multiplicity could also be done as a two part, hands-on with a smaller group and then the program and demonstration of how to assemble. Tom would take the lead on this hands-on event. The participants would work in pairs, with their cameras, We have done this for two other clubs and it was fun, one group had 8 participants, the other club had 14 participants.
