Cloned: 14 Skillful Examples of Photographic Multiplicity


Photographers who are dedicated to their craft spend copious amounts of time and energy trying to improve. The specific skills that one seeks to improve upon will vary over time, but the drive to become a better photographer in general will always be there.  Serious photographers take their artistic growth seriously. This doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun in the process, however. In fact, you should be looking for fun ways to expand and improve your skills. How about a little “trick” photography?

Sometimes referred to as multiplicity or clone photography, populating an image with multiple versions of the same person is something that may not provide a foundation for building a career, but will surely provide you with a better understanding of a variety of photography skills, in addition to broadening your experience with various post-processing techniques.

If you’re intrigued, check out this thorough step-by-step tutorial; but before you get started with your cloning experiment, peruse the images below for a little inspiration.
