The Double Michel – inspired by Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir

Michel has a twin now... An evil twin ;-)I avow, that this post by the famous photographer Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir (no, don’t ask me to pronounce this Icelandic name!:-) inspired me… And also a question on the same subject, which my wife asked me a few days ago:

How this is done? And this?
Can a normal digital camera be used for this purpose?

Can the technique be reproduced using Macromedia Fireworks?

So, here’s the answer:

It could be done using a variety of methods.



The results are shown above [click on the thumbnail to see the image in full size]:-)

This is it – short and sweet. It’s me in the office today, shot by my small Pentax Optio S40 digital camera. And this is me, again… although, my second me is holding a knife and looks a bit evil;-)

If there’s interest, I may try to write a tutorial on it:-)

    Yes, i have a strong interest and you know it, you, little devil! I only asked for keywords to find how to do this by myself and you already produced it!

    Grrrrrrrrrr…you’ll have to tell me and of course, you should write tutorial – otherwise i will …ok, you will see what i will do with you…:-)

    Hey, it was just an experiment! Actually, I do not know, how this technique by Rebecca is called… Not do I know how to do it… But I will teach you, I promise, and I will write a short tutorial on it, OK:)

    Great job as always :-). I have a few ideas of how you did it! Too long and difficult to explain it in English though! Anyway you are really good! I’ll be waiting for the tutorial ;-).

    P.S.: Ani, torture him till he tells you the secret :))))))!!!!!!

  4. Michel Says:


    No need to torture me, there’s no secret;-)

    It’s a pretty easy to achieve effect (at least, when taking photos indoors), I just don’t have currently free time to write a couple of lines explaining it, and add 2-3 screenshots… Soon, promise! :)))
