Today we officially started a Flickr Group to showcase Simone‘s technique to generate ubiquitous presence of the same person in a single shot, we called it Ubiquities.

Three mes at work

The shooting tecnique comes directly from the Transparent Screen technique, but it’s applied over and over to obtain multiple occurencies of the same subject in different positions. As Simone says it’s easy to be applied indoor, since nothing in the background changes. We should experiment something outdoor.

It was real fun posing for a multiple me-while-working shot and to effectively pose for a multi-multiperson shot with both Paolo and Simone: we used post-its on the floor to map the feet positions and test lights and shadows. I’ll try the same technique at home to portray baby Francesca.

If interested you’ll find a brief tutorial here, and the Group photo pool here. The group is public, join in!
