09.09.12 - Big Daddy!
A few months ago the kids saw how to do this on TV and we've been meaning to try it for ages. I'd actually forgotten about it, then the idea was resurrected for the Steampunk shoot I had last week, and I finally tried it with the twins this weekend.
Of course this is easy enough to do in photoshop, but the idea is to pose it and shoot it as one image. Apart from the positioning you need a bright day, wide angle lens and a small aperture, to give the broadest dof, otherwise the focus gives the game away. After some trial and error I got some great ones of Jack and Amy, but I'm particularly proud of this one that Amy took herself. It's a shame that Jack lost patience and couldn't hold his pose looking at me for long enough :)
I couldn't resist some slight tinkering in photoshop to clone Jack's legs to overlap with my fingers slightly.
