Multiplicity is a photography technique in which the same person is photographed from different angles and directions and then the bunch of photographs are digitally re-mastered in Photoshop showing clones of the person doing different things all in one photo.

Today we present 35 Surreal Examples of Multiplicity Photography to inspire you. Photography and Photoshop go hand in hand. Multiplicity Photography is the real test of your patience as you may have to work for hours to get the right shots mainly because of different angles, props and clothes used in pre-production. And finally when you have the images, you have to work on different techniques (blending, layering, curving etc) in Photoshop to paste all the images in one single photo. Enjoy.

      1. you are aware that the d90 and d300 have literally the same exact image resolution, megapixels, sensor size, etc..right??

      2. D90 and D300 are very very different. Similar sensor, not the same. D300 has great autofocus, D90 autofocus is very frustrating. D300 has full magnesium body, stronger shutter. Shoots more FPS. Doesn’t look like a toy, etc. Huge differences.

  1. Awesome post!!
    I want to do something similar with photos for my band and this has provided me with some serious inspiration!

  2. So you shot a base plate image, then individual shots and then photoshopped them in. Big whoop. If the concepts were more interesting, i.e. told some sort of story or had some sort of point, I could look past it. But there is nothing more here than technique, and not a very original or difficult one.

    1. I wrote something similar to yours but evidently I didn’t put it as nicely as you did because they didn’t print it.

  3. These were unbelievable. Would love to be able to produce such amazing photos, but just have a little point and shoot.

  4. I dont usually do a lot of commenting but why not do a slightly shorter list and weed out some of the ones with the really crappy photoshopping jobs. It would keep the list hq, not just having every example one can find.

  5. The first one, I know her..or OF her should I say because she takes awesome pics! I am a fan of her collection on flickr :) Her name is Rebekkah and she’s from Iceland. Fabulous pics!

  6. Wow those are indeed surreal. I love the first one very creative idea using the mirror image! I wish I was talented enough to come up with these types of things on my own but now that I’ve seen some of them I might give em a try just to test out my own photography and editing skills.

  7. Ich denke, dies ist eine großartige Nachricht. Eine Sache, die ich am meisten hilfreich finden, ist Nummer fünf. Manchmal, wenn ich schreibe, ich lass den Fluss der Worte und Informationen kommen so sehr, dass ich locker den Zweck. Es ist nur nach der Bearbeitung, wenn ich merke, was ich getan habe. Es ist trotzig eine Menge toller Tipps hier werde ich versuchen, mehr bewusst.

  8. Hey ALL of these are wonderful. If anyone out there can answer my next question, I would be so greatful. Is there any possible way that I can do these clones/multiplicities without using photoshop? I would love to do these but CANNOT afford Photoshop at all. Is there a free program that would allow me to do this type of work? I would be greatful for an answer. TY. Sharmaine

  9. This is the first time that I have seen these types of pictures. Although there are a couple that are at least mildly interesting only one “multiplicity” shows any kind of mental complexity by the photographer. The rest are just adolescent or uninspired and totally undeserving of a second look, and to them I say “take out your trash, it stinks”.
