I had fun composing this picture, directing my wife around my parents yard
:D

I'm not sure what this style of photography is called and if it even belongs in this sub forum.

It is 7 Pictures carefully stitched together using photoshop.
I had the camera set on a Tripod and locked into position so that it would not move. The camera was set to auto.

Quality!

Is the one at the very far back when your wife said 'enough!' and had a lie down?!!?

There are 3 ways that I know of.
1. Pick a base photo and copy a selection from the other photos and place it on top of the base photo being careful to match the pixels.

2. Stack all the Photos on top of each other and Delete the sections above the of the top photos allowing the subject to appear on top

3. Use a program that scans the photos and matches pixels, it keeps the similar pixels and adds the variations, in this instance my wife.

I used both 1 and 2 with identical outcomes.

Brate, that is really neat! I love it!

I used to do something roughly similar by manually firing a flash gun in a pitch dark room during a bulb exposure and getting the subjects to pose and re-pose for every flash, but it's nowhere near as creative as yours! I'm gonna give it a try!

Ha! that's cool, I use a a lot of layer-based image editing software and that is pretty creative, I saw a example of this in a popular photography magizine, and it was a man and his white sports car which was pretty cool, I had tried doing this once and couldn't get a steady shot with my old 10 dollar staples tripod. LOL but you did great job

Polygamy with the same person? =P

Yeah, i've heard of this technique. Set the shutter speed in Shutter Priority('S' or 'Tv') to, say, 30 seconds, and make the subject pose here and there. Keep firing a flash gun each time you wana get another clone.
(I think this is how it works)

Another way you could use this technique with a great result -> When a person is swinging something, e.g. a badminton racket, keep firing a flash in a 1/1.6 second time box.

I made such a shot long time ago too :) only using a tigher frame :)

Camera was set on manual, so the exposure whould be the same for all 3 frames (wrong white balance, i know, but it seemed to me that it gived a more dramatic effect). Of course, Photoshop later on :P:
