More tea, sir?

I haven't done a multiplicity shot for a while so just whipped up one tonight. I had an idea I had brewing for a while so just executed it.


It's probably the tougher of the ones I've done for various reasons and I made the biggest mistake of not setting up a plain background plate so it got a bit tricky.


Here's the rest of my Multiplicity efforts.

    Talking to yourself again, Steve? I'm beginning to worry.

    Nice work, though!!!
  • Steve Koukoulas 7y

    Haha, actually I thought of you for this photo. Was hoping to have a token slice of baclava as a foreground object. But the fridge is bare. :(
  • Helen 7y

    Now, that would have been plain mean!
  • Evan 7y

    I thought something was missing.
  • Geoff Banks 7y

    Very cool, though I'm very surprised to see a Liverpool FC mug taking centre stage!
  • Steve Koukoulas 7y

    Don't be too surprised Geoff, that's very common around these parts. ;)
  • Bruce Wayne Berry Jr. 7y

    This is awesome! Well done!
  • Something For Kate 7y

    Awesome clone shot!! The interaction between the two front yous is seamless! Excellent work.
  • mrgadget_oz 7y

    Steve those three guys look like you!?
  • Evan 7y

    You know, I didn't notice that at first but now that you mention it..........
  • madswisscow 7y

    This really is excellent ! You're becoming a pro at this :-)
  • Steve Koukoulas 7y

    @darth - Thank you.

    @SFK - Thank you, it took a bit of work but the end result is what counts.

    @mrgadget - Just add water arnold. Just add water.

    @evvvvs - Open your eyes and see.

    @Mad Milka - Thank you, I've still got a ways to go before I'm happy with it but I'll keep honing my skills. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Dude. This is brilliant. You must have busted your ass working on that pour.
  • Steve Koukoulas 7y

    Thanks Rob, actually it was probably the easiest part of the shoot.

    Idea for a multiplicity shot? a few days.
    Set up tripod and take snaps? a few minutes.
    Paint out layers using masks? about an hour.

    Upload to flickr and watch peoples responses as they are amazed how they realise how easy it is to do? priceless.
  • Bas Bleu 7y

    Nicely done!
  • Steve Koukoulas 7y

    Shanks Christy. :)
  • Erin 7y

    this is excellent!!
  • PhotoPatriot 7y

    Excellent job, I love the pouring of tea, and the the whole lighting in this one... perfection.
  • Steve Koukoulas 7y

    Thank you Minty and Shaft. :)
  • Wil C. Fry 7y

    That's fantastic!
    I was thinking of doing one with a wine glass and wine bottle, but never could solve the problem of where the wine goes when I'm getting the pouring shot. Great job of solving this.
