Alter Egos

Does anyone have any instructions on editing an alter ego photo in Photoshop?

Re: Alter Egos

haha... never seen something really interesting with that "technique". Thanks for the link.

try putting the camera in a tripod and shooting with the timer. Place your self in some place and do some shoots, make sure not to overlaop your self so it will be easy when maskin out the useless part of the pics then open all of them in PS and put them one over the other in layers and mask out what's not needed. I think you will do it pretty intuitively. It's easy. For some of the retouchs shown in the link you probably will need another person, like the one where the alter ego suffocates itself.

Yes the "easy" part is shooting and mask. The hard part is the interaction bit. I have never seen a desctription on how to do that ( other than to work with twins ). The greatest examples is the Pupsam self kiss examples where people make out with themselves ( slightly erotic or whatever one should call it =) ). Incredible.

There is so much interaction, one does not know whwre to start figuring things out =)

YEah, starting by the hand pushing the chest, you can see how the fingers andhand push the skin away in the chest area. Probably a second person used for reference just don't know... quite freak.
