    My girlfriend went off to work early today, leaving me several hours alone. I wanted to take a simple but silly photo, and I think I nailed it!

    Afterthought Edit: Posing people that aren't there is much more difficult than previously thought.

    Good eye ^_- I was too lazy to composite the wood layer all the way across, so I just did a quick fix haha

    Edit:
    No that isn't a bowl lol it is actually a marker xD and now that you said that I can't see anything else

    Being a little OCD, the clutter on that coffee table made me cringe and I didn't get a good look at the picture....so I can't really comment further other than to say you should clean your coffee table...lol.

    theres a couple different ways to do it
    the easiest being,
    tripod
    taking multiple shots without moving the camera
    and then cutting them all up and putting them into one picture

    @Erose86
    Well you got the start right on target, tripod, flash (ambient light kept changing). After I had my base exposure I just plugged away.

    Using photo shop I stacked all the images on top of each other and literally hand painted (using the mask tool, and white brush) each one back in. I started off with the clean slate taken at the end of the shoot so that I could have the least amount of changes picture to picture.

    Simple technique, and one I use in my video presentations to make people laugh as well.

    @pbelarge
    Not as pissed once she finds out that I finished up the Absolute for this photo :p

    I wasn't talking photographically....I was talking about helping with my "shutter" factor. Bugs and Spiders don't bother me....messy spaces.....(I just shuttered again).

    I have 3 all together :) so almost every one has a blue lighter, the rest have to share a red, black, and green one. I feel bad for the ones that don't fit in :|
